200,000 on my duratec in my ST, no issues.

Your GF DOES need a ST, just ask her.

You never know, she might= ST & be faster than you! You saying that can happen. How 'bout you stepping up to the ST & give her your car/ Just a thought, you probably already did, huh! Or if your the Zetec kind of guy= Can you say SVT!

The only common problems I've heard of are the ticking from the variable intake runner. Other then that everything else is just maintenance. The thermostat and pcv are fairly difficult to reach.

I've put 43K on mine in only 15 months, runs great. only had one issue with a bad TB, but it was fixed under warranty. Id go for an ST in a heart beat.
