Bought my '04 EAP new. 269k on it now. Engine has never been apart and still uses no oil. I'm fanatical about maintenance, though. I bought an ST3 to replace it, but let the wife have the ST. I like the SVT better...

My SVT is at 55,000 miles, so low. But, I'm happy to see all these high mileage SVT's. I hope mine can go that far even with the JRSC.

I just bought my svt eap zx5 last night with 150k. I've always wanted an eap svt zx5 since having my 2005 ST a few years back. I'm excited to have one now and make it my own.

It runs great, no red flags when I brought it in for inspection and topped off and changed a lot of the fluids to make em fresh. So, so far so good.

Updating a way earlier post .... my '04 SVT is now sitting at 294,500 miles. I did have to replace the transmission last month. Input shaft bearing was the probable diagnosis. But like so many others, the motor still does not use any oil and keeps on trucking!

Mine was starting to run rough at 150,000 and I could never figure it out. Just got tired of messing with it and sold it. I really should have inspected the car a little better before buying it.

Mine just hit 177k and i changed the engine and tranny out last weeked cause my svt wasent taken care of before i bought it, so the engine was blowing blue smoke on start up and running like crap, plus making odd bearing noises too, i feel so bad that my svt had a hard life before me, but. Glad to have a good running engine now, turbo soon.



Nevin your svt will last just as long as the rest, just keep up on maintaining it and try not to race too much lol.
