Mine had a couple glitches, slipped a bit here and there when it's very cold out, range sensor gets weird on gravel roads. All in all though, it's pretty good for 200K on the odometer. Sadly it was in a crash and I'll be looking for something else.
I had a 2001 ZX3 ATX as a DD that had 178K on the original trans. I drove it for 18 months with the reverse clutchs out in it lol. You had to rev it up gently then it would engage just enough to back up a little. Drove like a raped ape going forward.

My current MK1's all have original ATX's.

150K on the blue ZTS, 170K on the wagon, and 108K on the ZX3.

I really enjoy the comfort of the ATX for hiway DD and stop and go too.

My car (also an 07 SES ATX) shifts flawlessly smooth. Though I also siphon out three liters every summer.

garnnavy I passed 184K this week. I just replaced the valve cover gasket as well this week. Engine runs great. I have put a rack and pinion in it, a couple trans sensors, 5 passenger side rear wheel bearings and 4 on the drivers side. I had to replace the driver side seat too.
