I'm looking at G500's with 100,000+ miles that are still $30,000?! How many miles can I expect to get out of a well maintained one? My S500 has 188k and was well maintained and is an amazing vehicle, my 420SEL finally shit out at 221,000 because of problems I should have noticed. I'm not worried about one with 100,000 but can I expect it to make it to 200,000?

My G500 has a little more that 207K miles and is going strong ... knock wood.

I`ve already seen several G500s with over 500 000 kms. So 200 000 miles won`t be any problem. The t-case seems to be the weakest point, in general it last only about 300 000 kms.

Not holding in low range on mine. It would pop out constantly and I couldn't hold it in either. Eventually the same happened in high range.

I recently began getting a T/C dash display at all times my key is out. My mechanic told me while working on the vehicle he predicts my actuator sensor is going downhill. On a rare occasion, I'll shift from park into drive whilst the vehicle unilaterally decides to go into neutral. Once shifted into park, the clicking begins. I must select neutral and then High Range to return to a functional drive.

Logically this would be only an electronic malfunction. Perhaps someone would chime in and inform me of another present or developing failure...?
