Hello all,

Just a roll call of the higher mileage people on here, mines only got 53k, and when I owned BMWs I saw many a person over the quarter million mile mark, but just who has some of the highest milers here !?

And include if you can what major components you have replaced ?

Hello all,

Just a roll call of the higher mileage people on here, mines only got 53k, and when I owned BMWs I saw many a person over the quarter million mile mark, but just who has some of the highest milers here !?

And include if you can what major components you have replaced ?

I think you can consider tyres, brake discs/pads(shoes?) and even exhausts as consumables (and EGR valves on mk3 mondeos!)  

, my plan was/ is to replace the old components with better, stronger/ faster/ more reliable components,

 

Upto about 90k my car had all the origanal components, then the back- box fell off, and the DMF started playing up, i fitted the SMF/ carbon kevlar HD clutch to replace the DMF -

 

This is the only major component that needed replacing, the car has the original, block, crank/rods pistons cams, injectors, both fuel pumps/ turbo inlet/ exhaust manifolds (for now) - it has had very little spent considering  8 years of ownership and almost 100% reliability (i even "nursed" the desintegrating DMF along for about a year) 

 

The connection onto the radiator fan failed, this caused a "knock-on effect" with the coolant leaking between the waterpump/ power steering pump, i felt i may as well "go for it" and fit an Electric waterpump 

 

I plan to fit a lighter exhaust silencer, and go up from a 2-1/4" system to a 2-1/2" at some point, (and a better decat) but the 2-1/4" is working well so i might as well get the milage out of it - i have a spare exhaust manifold/ turbo to fit, which i want to get ceramic coated and a custom blanking plate with EGT sender

 

I have a new inlet manifold, gas flowed, with a 1-off modified oversize inlet to fit, along with a complete set of custom oversize boost pipes

 

I guess all the upgrades / component replacements help, but some of the modifications probably help the logevity as well (eg - the EGR delete/ breather bypass making the inlet cleaner/ less contamination/ engine etc lasts longer)

My car mileage was on 36k since I bought it on 1st of November 2011.

 

Now 2013 it's on over 48k.

1500 miles 3 weeks in :P

My fiesta MKVII went on past it 44,444th mile yesterday 

jmurray01

Our 2000 Ford Focus has 167,500 miles on the odometer with no major repairs or replacement parts - just good old regular oil changes.

 

Yes the bodywork looks pretty awful it has to be said, but mechanically she just keeps on going and going and going...

Just got rid of a mk3 2.0 petrol estate with 194k on it. Had replaced clutch and flywheel (dualmass is damn expensive man!), all the suspension arms, bearing front and back, EGR valve, and it still wanted new rads (both cooling and ac were rotting to hell), valve stem steals plus the air bag control unit was shot and I was struggling to get 28mpg out of her so i thought it won't get through MOT with new regs (which are a pain the backside) so i might as well get newer car. So picked up 1.4 focus with 72k on the clock and still having problems with that too! lol

Mind you it had been used as a workhorse for 3 years and had 35k put on her in that time! :)

gregers

bought my 08 smax 2ltr tdci titainium with 99990 on the clock,it now has 107 on it in 18ths.

MY MK6 Fiesta ST did 230 000km's, replaced 1 clutch, 1 battery and a few globes. (besides normal wear and tear items)

jeebowhite

That surely has to be the winner ;)

Alexm
I don't for one minute regret getting my ford, well apart from a few issues even though its a low miler.

But when I used to have a Beamer 4 or 5 years ago, people were coming up with 400k + and a few euro people with their million km 6-pots.
Gerhardva

That surely has to be the winner ;)

I reckon, and what I didnt mention was that I modded her to full  ST190 spec at 50 000 kms. Cams, exhaust, induction, 60mm Throttle body, Uniq+ Chip

Not bad going!

Stogies
2008 Mondeo Zetec bought two weeks before Christmas 2012 with 44k on the clock.

Hold on, so your Forfour has managed 102,000 miles without wearing out brake pads? 

 

Secondly, why have both the Seat and the Honda had just one disc replaced?  I was always told you should replace both discs at the same time.

appologies. i have corrected the Seat and Honda. with the exceptions of the Seat and Civic which were bought brand new by my uncle, the others were bought 2nd hand.

 

the reason for replacing just the discs and not the pads on my forfour was that the discs had a fairly big lip on them when i bought it but the pads we about 25% worn, so in my eyes it made more sence to replace the discs and reuse the pads

Ah, I see!  I thought you'd owned it from new and the brake pads were still good after 102,000 miles - that would be a miracle!

Alan R Gault

My 2012 Fiesta 1.6 TDCi Econetic has 44.450 miles.  But probably counts as high considering it is only 16 months old!!

Mr Singh

well your going to like this even better. the Seat is still on its original rear discs. and the Civic is still on its original clutch and feel like new
