Nice to see the svt is good for some miles. I am considering picking up an 03 with 181k miles to use as a daily driver/commuter. Completely stock, and taken care of. Was wondering how much longer it would be good for with proper maintenance. I would also not be beating on the thing. Conceivably I could get another 4 or 5 years out of it at 10k miles annually. Possibly more.
I have 2 other cars, so this wouldn't be my only car to depend on. Again just a daily/commuter.

Not posting any pics...my little 2003 yellow workhorse is in desperate need of new paint.
But it has 363k kms on it (about 227k miles). Bought it last July at 237k kms. At this rate I'll hit 500k by the end of next year.
Needs front pads and rotors now...not bad since I put used ones on when I bought it.
