Not everyone trades vehicles at 100k. My EB currently has 170,000 miles and we are leaving for a 6000 mile trip through the Rockies with my TT in Sept. I am not worried about the TV at all. It is running good, uses no oil, has all the power I need. No worries.

Do any of the manufacturers give a definitive answer on how long their vehicle will last? I only ask because I've never heard one say it will last for 250K miles or 200K, etc. My answer to quality and longevity claims by manufacturers is that if they have so much confidence, why are the basic warranties still 3 year/36K miles for the majority of makes. Also, I don't know of any that have a power train warranty over 100K miles. If they have that level of confidence, let them put their money on the line. Until then, there isn't any difference between them in my eyes. Of course I'm not remotely brand loyal so there is that.


The GM engineer for the 3.0 Duramax reported the new diesel had a design life span of 150k miles.


I saw that but, on another video on YouTube, he stated that the belt was only good for 150k and is then changed out by removing the transmission and unbolting a cover. So I think the engine will def go longer then that. Only time will tell.


I agree... I think this engineer answered the question incorrectly when he said the oil pump belt would last the life of the engine.

Ford made a lot of diesels that would not go that far!


Which Ford made diesels?

It’s at least 90 percent will last to 150k without major repairs. Most light duty stuff is built to exceed this criteria. I transport TTs from Mfgrs to dealerships commercially with my ED. At 371,000 mine after having been low on coolant a couple times until I got the leak resolved pushed a head gasket. I swapped in a new motor which now has 207,000 on it. The 150k thing seems to have a lot of people confused right now.

I still don't understand your point.

371,000 miles for severe duty is really good.
