    Who out there has or has seen Mustangs with 200K+ miles? Also are there any folks who have reached 200K miles from brand new? I always said when I buy my new stang, whenever that day may be, I'll keep it forever. Currently though, I drive a 99 V6 with 269K on the body, the motor was replaced and has to have around 150 to 160. Love my car, been through so much. Any other stories?

    My car recently made it to 220,000 before the engine died. I drove it on the beach, in the mud, lots of dirt roads, and lots high mileage road trips. Now it's time to get a new engine. All the fluids had dirt, sand, and grasshoppers in them when I drained the car.
    650,000. . . wow. Somebody babied their car.

    Lol, the guy traded it in after 500,000. Somebody said it belonged in a Museum. The gods were kind to that car.

    @ProjectVicky grasshoppers in the powersteering fluid huh lol that'll mess em up. I kind of wish my aunt wasn't so cruel to my sixer, that original motor woulda had almost 270,000 on it in just a few weeks :rolleyes: but the body is definitely reflectant of of that 270k to be. OXIDATION

    Honestly its like any car, you do the routine maintenance and don't run it through the ringer, chances are its going to last a while.

    I have 170,000 miles on my 2001 3.8 V6. Ive owned it ten years and drive the heck out of it everyday. I have never had any major problems with it. In all that time I have replaced a cam syncronizer once and my passenger side manifold twice. Other than regular tuneups and brakes it has been the most dependable car ive ever owned.

    I have almost 300 miles on my base Pony car, now. So, I should be good to go until the Good Shepard shuts me down, and I die a happy man.
