IMHO high mileage isnt until 15k a year. I think anything up to that is reasonable commuting, but beyond that, its done a bit more leg work. I bought my Cee'd with 20k on the clock at one year old - that was definately high mileage. I just bought the CMAX at 44k for a 55 plate... thats in my eyes low mileage :P

Hi jeebo, a bit off subject, but why did you get rid of the Ceed, I thought you were happy with it, also have you sorted the battery problem on the CMAX?

Thanks for that link, I had missed that post. Very interesting and a valid reason to return to Ford and a larger car. I hope you soon get all the teething problems with the Cmax sorted and you enjoy it as much as the Ceed.

Mine is an 07 and it's done 82k.
It was a fleet car before so was mostly motorway miles.
Saying that, my work car is lo 59 and has done over 100k.

tbf its a diesel... this is what they are for... when we had our last scoobb (b4 the focus) we had it just over 1 yr and only covered approx 8k, 250 of that was bringing it back, and another 500 when we went on holiday.... we had focus in june/july last year, and have put on approx 7.5-8k because its a derv and you get plenty more miles on the same fuel.....


I seem to overtake a lot of Impretzas in my diesel Mondeo (inc WRX etc- every second car seems to be one in our town at night at the weekend) - often they are "crawling" along - probably trying to strech the MPG to 20MPG :lol: (whats the point of that)

There was a time when 100k was regarded as high mileage, modern diesels can do 300+k or more

agreed, the engines these days have so much more life in them, thats why I tend to think 15k per year is acceptable :)

with a petrol i say if the mileage is double the age then its high e.g. if a car is 5 years old it should have 50,000 miles on the clock but if its got 60,000+ then its high. with a diesel same as petrol BUT if its got quadruple the mileage e.g if its 5 years old it should have 100,000 miles on the clock... if that makes sence
