      Mine went out two weeks ago. It sounded like it was bound to go with time - I think that the extreme cold and temperature fluctuations finally did it in. More of a noisy belt (almost clicky) sound...

      Just shy of 83k. Had the MAF sensor cleaned at 80k during mileage service, CEL kicked on within two days. It goes off rather quickly and only seems affected for the drive after it immediately kicks...
