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.


07 Focus ZXW, 5spd manual, 210km M1 5W30
18 Outback 2.5 CVT 10km 0W20 "bulk subaru" whatever that is

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.

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.

1999 Wrangler Sahara
1995 318ti Club Sport

Wife's:
