115,400 miles

timing chain, motor mounts, all 4 airmatic struts (preventative at 105k), new aircompressor (preventative), differential pressure sensor on DPF, Nox Sensors, Swirl Flap Motor and Oil cooler at 46k, Vacume pump base gasket, Oil filter housing base gasket,

Lots of maintenance, oil changes at 5k miles, transmission changes at 20k, transfer case every oil change.

ditched run flats at 31k, been on Michelin LTXs on the 20" rims.

Knock on wood seem to be in a phase of replaced parts! Even with the issues I have had its better than a Suburban or similar. I have 5 kids and tow a Airstream and need a large SUV and the mileage is awesome.
I am up to 140k now, last 25k have been great. I think I have replaced most of the common areas of issues. I continue preventative maintenance and it keeps giving me good service. Transmission shifts a little lazy when cold though.

To all the CDI owners,

What oil do you use? I Use the oem recomended Mobil 5w30 ESP formula. Should I keep using it or change to something like a high mileage type?

Since Mobil discontinued the 5w/40, I have been using the MB branded 5w/30 229.52. I think I like the idea of the 5/40 better though in my hot climate..

I have posted before. I currently use liqui moly 5w40 leichtlauf high tech. It gives me good protection and great reports from black stone oil analysis. It is a 229.5 so one would need a program and dpf removal which also keeps oil cleaner by turning off her. I previously was using Castro turbo diesel because I wanted to stay with a 5w40. But it became too hard to find. But my reports from BS markedly improved. Although I wasnít sampling with the Mobile one. It gets hot in Louisiana and since I started with a 5w40 and had over 100k. I didnít want to change
