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.
