I find this impressive as Chicago weather is incredibly rough on vehicles. My 2005 Highlander is rusted out due to Chicago weather. Sounds like he got his money worth!

He puts between 300-400 miles every day therefore he is changing it every month or less.

with the exception of the earlier automatic-oil cooler issue frontiers are pretty solid. still no problematic DI + my 2011 is a stick with the proven 4.0 V-6, good power + decent mpg's whats not to like. they are a best buy being thousands less than others! the fronty is more midsized not like the cramped overpriced Toco's, can't believe people pay what they ask!!!

I like to drive, but 12-14 hours and 300-400 miles per day just doesn't appeal to me. Good on him if he enjoys what he's doing.

And yet my 09 with a 2.5 burns around a quart of oil every 1k with impeccable service. My 03 which should have used oil used none when it was totaled at 176k. I actually thought that car would have run a million miles. I replaced nothing outside of brakes and tires.

Honestly if you hit a million miles in a certain vehicle, the company should give you 75% off your next one or something like that. Sure they'd lose money but think of the positive publicity and recognition from the public.

Better man than me. i could only tolerate my Frontier for 145K. All I did was oil changes, put in better shocks and never in the shop.
