The SPI's best selling point is its longevity; they're just starting to break in at 100,000 miles and (as already posted) its not uncommon for them to break the 300,000 mile mark. Although this seems to be normal for Ford/Mazda designed four-cylinders; there's a guy on here with over 200,000 miles on a Zetec. As long as you keep up with the routine maintenance on it there's no reason why the engine will fail. The drivetrain is a different story however, esp. with the 4F27E automatics which don't exactly have what I would call a good track record.
