Hi,

What sort of mileage are you guys racking up on the 3.0. My own 3.0 is only on 30K but the one we use in work, 2003 model (s spec) has just hit 140K. We should start to see some high mileage 3.0 litres by now. So any high mileage 3.0 litres out there?

Thanks

Heard of a friend's early 3.0L in Telstra finally blowing up after 190,000.

Yeh, I've heard of the Nissan dealers explaining away the problem by saying that most of the blow-ups have been in Telstra or Police vehicles. But their driving habits haven't changed; all the other models/brands seemed to take that sort of punishment, somehow the 3.0L's don't.
I used to work for Telstra also, and I know what sort of punishment the 4wd's got, and they seemed to go forever. Why not the 3.0L?
