My 2008 Ford Focus just crossed over 100,000 miles!

I should note I bought the car with 35,000 Miles May 2010. It was a certified used vehicle.

I am at 82,560. I should know, I made a comment to my girlfriend earlier that it was perfectly at 82,500.0 when I pulled into my driveway. Haha. Congrats! I will be joining you soon!

so for the guys with the higher mileage... how are the cars running? have you had any serious maintenance?

does it still drive like a new ride?

I haven't had any major issues at all. Just regular maintenance, I stick by the book for everything. (Aside from Oil, I use full synthetic Pennzoil Ultra so I go about 9,000 miles a change). I also had my shocks and struts done at 75K, but I did that just because I wanted to have a more firm ride. It was not needed by any means.

Only @ 17,250 miles *sad face* and usually only add ~20/day...... This could take a bit to hit 100,000

4,120 days to spitball it @ 20 miles/day or around 11 years.

Bought mine last year with 32K on it and I crossed the 65K mark last week... Won't be long before I hit the 100K mark and beyond - work and back is ~105 miles a day! I would say the majority of those last 30K has been around 80mph too!

Mine's a 2009 from Oct 2008 with ~61000

Mileage will build up slower now that I commute ~0.4mi to work and ~0.4mi home
