How many mileage does your Ford has please

Hello:

I just filed for bankruptcy but luckily I got to keep my car. Mine is a 2014 with currently 28000 miles. My question is, for peace of mind how many mileage does your Focus has cause I intend to keep her for at least 8 years.

Thank you kindly,

Marie

That's a very decent mileage for a 2014. Typical "daily drivers" get 15k a year put on them.

My 2015 has 75k on it. Other than a new DCT clutch and an O2 sensor no major issues. It was a fleet car in its previous life and had lots of highway miles on it when we bought it... got it pretty cheap.

104k on my 2013 SE. Had to replace the axles and the passenger side motor mount, but that's been it aside from standard maintenance. She's had a small leak in the rear main seal since I bought her, but I run Valvoline Max Life Full Synthetic to help with that, and even still, she loses less oil than my old Outback did, so I don't care. Everything I've found has shown that these are good cars (DCT aside) that can easily break 200k, and even 300k.

110K+ on a '13. The only failure was the passenger mount, which is common on these. Relatively inexpensive repair.

Your biggest issue will likely be the trans, but otherwise these cars are very reliable.

Mine is a 2015 6-speed manual but I'm sitting at ~158,000 miles with basic maintenance done, starter replaced at 145,000 miles, water pump replaced under warranty at ~30,000 miles, rear O2 sensor around 125,000 miles, and evap hose at 80,000-ish miles (I idle the car sometimes when sleeping during winter roadtrips so the O2 sensor and evap hose doesn't surprise me.)

I have a 13 Titanium Hatchback w/ 38k miles. Very sluggish & quirky transmission.
