Highest Mileage

I've had mine 9 months 7100 miles.
So far the fuel consumption is 7.5 L /100 Km (31.2 MPG US) 13.3 Km/l life to date all fillups logged.
Nothing has broken so far.
Michellin Tyres look brand new, no punctures so far and very little tread wear.
Oil Usage 400 ml life to date (400 ml = 0.84 US pints.) Still running the factory oil and it still looks clean.

I'm looking for comments from high mileage users of this car and which parts have had to be replaced etc ?

9 months here as well.
~9700 miles on the car
Oil changed at 5k (haven't checked usage)
33.8 mpg is what I show currently but that only includes about 5 tanks worth
issues since owning
Cracked windshield, had the headliner ripped out to fix a washer fluid kink, transmission update, left tail light needed to be tightened down as it wobbled around.

We get about 31 city and up to 33/34 on the road. Not quite the 40 MPG they advertize on TV.

9500 miles @ an average of 34.4 mpg. Best tank 37.3 mpg. Oil changes at 3000 miles because its cheap and no problems at all with the vehicle. I did break the lowest cross bar on the grill when I ran into a snow bank while parking. Probably a very expensive fix so I guess I will live with it.

The Titanium is NOT listed at 40mpg!

As I recall only the S model with SFE package is listed at 40mpg...

SE with SFE, the S is not available with any packages other than auto or manual.
