I usually don't like to buy anything with over 100,000 miles. However I did buy my 2003 Grand Marquis with 122,000 on it. That is the most.

53k km for the Focus, the rest have been new or gifts/cast offs! The CRV had 240k km on when we got it and has needed alot of stuff replaced... It has cost enough without actually buying it.

In 1991, I bought an '87 Monte Carlo with a 305 in it, with 144,000 miles.

The guy bought it new, put it on a 4 year loan, and sold it to me when he paid it off. He had to travel a lot for his job and it was nearly all highway miles.

He ordered it exactly the way he wanted it. Cruise, tilt, air, and a power seat. That was it. Didn't even have power windows or power locks. He had a shop put a transmission cooler on it as well.

Even with 144,000 miles, it looked and ran like new. I took it up to 252,000 miles. I saw it around town for about two years after I sold it, and then it disappeared.

I don't remember. It seems so long ago and a different person than I am today.

The old Ford LTD wagon, the Bonneville, the Toyota wagon...They all had over 100k miles on them.

Way back in 1981 I bought a 1957 Chevy PU. It had 250k on it. Still ran but smoked. I swapped the 6cyl out and a built 283 and turbo 350 trans in. I ran that for another 100k before selling it.

The 1975 2002 I bought in 2008 had over 200k, but the engine and transmission had recently been rebuilt. It ended up being my son's first car. Finally sold it in 2015 to make room for another track rat.
