+1 i feel better knowing that a lot of the high mileage SMG's are still running strong. i talked to a tech at the dealership and he said that a SMG with high miles and no problems would most likely NEVER have any significant issues, most of the SMG pump problems mainly happen in the mid range 70K+ range. KNOCK ON ****IN WOOD!!
