Highest mileage HHR SS

I have a 09 HHR ss , with 165k on the odometer. I bought the car used with 60k roughly. Its been a great car so far
use it everyday for work. Its has been trouble free until now, just some minor stuff, fan went out, front end bushings, other than
that oil changes and gas. Im curious if this things got another 100k without major engine repairs . The engine is very strong still. Does not burn oil. So how many folks out there
have over 200k 300k. I did see a video on youtube of some dude in a LS or LT tripping 400k so awesome

Mine has 157k on it. Only major repair was the water pump drive chain. The dealer who did the repair said this was a surprise failure. Never seen a drive chain fail before. So I'm just chalking it up to just a bad part. Other than that it has been battery, brakes, tires, control arms and front struts. Normal wear/tear items.

With some preventive maintenance, yes!
don’t wait till the timing chain breaks, change it!
don’t wait till the brakes grind and fail, inspect clean and change the brakes when required.

And since the SS is direct injection, make sure the valves are inspected now and then.

I have 199,596 miles on my HHR SS. No oil leaks and it doesn't burn oil. I always use premium gas and I always use 5w30 Mobil synthetic and change it at about 20% oil life. It's been an excellent car and never left me stranded. I've had a Trifecta tune since 15,000 miles and never had any issues with the engine. Just normal maintenance.
My 1997 Cavalier 2.4 had 300,000 when I sold it and 2 years later the individual I sold it to was still driving it.

I have 189,000 no oil use. 3rd set of tires, 4th set of front brakes and second rear. GM upgrade kit and 32-34MPH on the highway. I get worried about the mileage and age of my car, but there is nothing GM makes to replace it.
