That is good.

Thats over 180,000 miles right?
That is good for no problems my Focus starting playing up after a month from Brand New but I love the thing and got it fixed for free with no more problems since then so I am happy customer.

(The car is actually of european origin built firstly in europe in 1998 and problary why were lucky enough to get access to the new generations first. Explains why one member said it's just an American Badge.)

American cars are reliable when you keep up with the maintenance, but they require more maintenance in the end. Id like to know how much money you've dumped into your Focus over the past 300k miles.

No, that's 300,000 miles. He is using the abbreviation K in place of actually typing out the full number, that's not kilometers. Also, you bumped a three-year-old thread. I wonder how many miles are on his car now?

currently 80k spi, 127k zetec, 40k svt.
KEEP ON ROLLIN! !
That's just what I was gong to say.
Your story is exactly the kind that they like to write up. And the fact that you use all Ford parts is a plus. They would be all over this!

Well if he did 300k in 2,557 days (7 years,) thats 117.325 miles/per day. Since his first post, its been another 1,120 days. So in theory he could have amassed another 131,404 miles, assuming the car is still driven the same (and alive!)

That would put the odometer at 431,404 miles
(assuming my math is correct lol)

I see there are more of us out there! My '04 SVT is now sitting at 309,000 and running like a champ. Just the normal SVT problems like thermostat housing, valve cover gasket, etc. Uses no oil between changes. Got to change my oil pan gasket soon though. Got a little leak.
