Duramax Longevity

OK, I'm gonna buy my first Duramax and I need to know how many miles you can get out of one on the average. I know it depends on how hard they're driven, but I see alot between 100,000 and 200,000 miles on them and I'm not sure how much they're worth with that many miles on them and how much longer they will last, any help would be appreciated as I am new to diesels......thanks.

So how much should I expect to pay for one with over 200000 miles, I've seen some for around $10,000, but because I'm new to diesels I'm not sure about the value at that mileage.

Most of the one's I've seen at $10,000 were 01 through 03, and I know they had problems with the injectors in those years, so if the injectors have been replaced they should be worth the money?

If it helps ease your mind on high mileage, of all the Duramax engines I see from the inside, I have yet to see one that is worn out from high miles. Most of them look barely broke in yet at 100,000.

Thanks Georgia, I know diesels are good for alot more miles, but still reading/learning, I know the Duramax has only been around for 8 years and wasn't sure about durability when they get over 200,000 miles.

What would you personally pay for one with 250,000 miles? 01 GMC Duramax, loaded, suppose to be in excellent shape haven't seen it except in pics, it's a few hours from me.
