      C30 With Over 100,000 miles

      Looking to buy a C30 R Design. What has been your experience with C30 having over 100,000 miles?

      Not a problem if it's maintained. Should have had t/belt etc., service by now. If not, you're looking at a chunk of change to get that done.

      Expect that shocks, hoses and maybe struts will be needed if original. Axles and control arms maybe, if vibrations are present. You really have to drive one & see, since it really is case by case.

      Mine has been fairly reliable since 104k when I bought it. 112k and counting.

      I’ve had mine for 110k mi (it’s at 144k now), and the most annoying thing about it is the sunroof drains; they plug or come undone and dump water into the cab. Keep an eye out for interior rust and fully functioning electricals. Otherwise look out for what the above folks have said

      If you're curious, I just got my timing belt replaced because I didn't feel like it. To get the timing belt, pulleys, water pump, crankshaft and camshaft seals, serpentine belt and an oil change cost me $1100. Why all that? Because it's easily accessible at that point and it's not a ton of extra time in labor and parts.

      Great info. If an R Design has the 2 tone seats, does that mean it does not have the Premium Plus package?
