My 2007 ZX3 SE just rolled 250k miles and going strong. Does anyone have more miles than me?

Good lord man, what do you do for work? Drive to Mexico City every day?? I have 85k on the body of my 06, and ~10k on the engine or so. What kind of oil/filter/gas do you use?

Thats American quality! You always hear the guy with the Honda or Toyota blowing their horn on miles. Here you go, I only have 99K on mine but driving it to 200K as its been reliable as hell! Let us know when you hit 300K!!

Crap that's a lot of mileage! I bet the dealer didn't expect to sell that one.

Well, I am the antithesis with less than 25K. The fun part is all the mailers I get from Ford saying I am late for my 40K (or whatever it is) 'checkup'. I bring it in for an oil change about once per year (still with less miles than spec'd on the sticker).

Ok, then how about you? What kind of oil/filter/gas/other maintenance do you do that keeps it running strong?
Just always do regular maintenance. Always drive my cars hard but maintain them well.

We are actually a car dealer where I work. It was a new trade in on a Nissan. We bought it wholesale and when I drove it back I told the owner I was buying it. Don't think the dealership wanting everyone to know a ford would go that long. [80?]

Sig car has 188,xxx on it.


But being the OP didn't put the miles on the car, I feel it's pointless to ask questions. Putting on 8k vs 24x,xxx ...



'American quality', LOL.
Mexican quality you mean?
