Well, it may not count as much since I bought the car with 99772 miles on it. I did buy it as a non-runner that was absolutely trashed. Only on my second tank of gas after 2 weeks of repairs and cleaning.

Obituary 06 ST 238,000+ miles

I've owned my 2006 ST since new. Everything was running tip top and it looked great! I had just put two cans of Sea Foam in it with a fill-up of hi-test ethanol free gas. While in Newark NJ last weekend some jerk ran a controlled intersection and then fled the scene of the accident leaving me with a totaled Focus. This was the best car I ever owned and will never be equaled. Long live the Focus ST.

2006 ZX4 SE sedan
Vermilion red, automatic
~150,600 miles.

Have absolutely loved this car so far. Purchased last year with ~146k miles already on it. As far as I'm aware, everything on it bar the radio is still stock.

2003 ZTW, 2.3 l engine. The 2.3 l is far and away the best engine for these cars. About 170,000 miles so far. Only engine problem was replacing the PCV valve, which required removing the intake manifold (ugh). Corrosion is the main enemy of an indefinite car life here in New England. I have replaced the lower radiator support (very rusty), and also the rear crossmember just in front of the rear bumper (rotted through with 2 large holes). (NOT the bumper backer). I also replaced the front K-frame with one from AZ, a year ago. Also replaced the headlight units as the plastic was getting very pitted and cloudy. I had ordered the heated seats when I bought the car. A big mistake. The seats have two settings: OFF and BURN YOUR BACKSIDE. The one on the passenger side actually started to burn the upholstery. I like the fact that the car does not have a touchscreen, and I can turn on the AC and the radio just by feel.

2015 SE 1.0L ecoboost here @ 129,000 miles bought brand new at 43 miles. Water pump replaced under warranty around 50K miles I think. "Vapor vent valve" replaced at 90K. Just changed the factory brake pads out, rears were dead and I could have used the fronts until 180K easily, probably 200K.

My valve cover is starting to leak a bit, and my two main motor mounts are possibly deteriorating somewhat. Second set of plugs. I'm just on my third set of tires. I get an occasional CEL which indicates a problem with the third oxygen sensor. But still runs well, all things considered. Somewhat to my surprise, the automatic transmission has performed flawlessly so far.

116,000 miles
Had to replace driver window motor.
Radiator started leaking after 100,000 but little bit of stop leak completely stopped the leak for now without clogging heading coils.
Still don't have a solution to install wheel covers after getting rid of Food lug nuts.
Changed work plugs just now.
No engine issue.
Steering light came on once last year but went away when restarted the car.
