2004 Z71 with 214K here. I bought it with 201K, i have only put a valve on the gas tank and i think there is a ball joint starting to go bad. Still has the plastic bushings in the front suspension for the alignment.

Actually, there are plenty of Mercedes driving around with 400 or 500K miles on them. The recent cars are not as reliable, as many of my friends will tell you.

Geez - 200K, sounds like a ton of miles. However, I realized I'm about to pass 50K miles.  My biggest complaint is that the truck is too small.   :P

'02 with 283,000.
Rebuilt transmission this year.
Replaced alternator end of last year.
Minor things previously; serpentine belt, belt tension adjuster, etc.
Other than that, a wonderful truck.
I drive at 75 MPH most of the time on the highway.

165K here...mostly highway miles. 

I only run Synthetic oil...usually moble one.
Trans, transfer case, diffs have Royal Purple. 

Every 50k miles I do a complete fluid flush.  Engine, trans, transfer case, diffs.
I had that "crank position sensor " problem and replaced that

Chevy replaced the gas tank after many problems the first year...it wouldnt fill. 

I have replaced one of the Catalytic converters, the brakes, tires, etc...

It does burn one quart of oil between oil changes....but has done that since new. 

It seems like I have to replace the serpentine belt every 3 months or so because it squeels.

A few months ago I bought an 02 2500 with 242,000 on it.  It needed new brakes all around and had a leaky seal in back.  I just put in a new driver's door window motor.  Other than these the only thing I know it had is a new transfer case.  I wish I knew more about it's history.  It drives great though.  I love it so far.  Im up to about 145,000 now.
