    295,697 Miles on 1998 Escort SE. 5 Speed manual. Has only needed regular maintenance.
    Currently needs rear struts, some exhaust work, and a coolant leak repair.
    Just a bit of rust repair, too.

    I am just over 331K miles now. Looks like I have been updating this almost yearly.

    About 80K of those have been mine over the last 5.5 years since I bought it. The car has been great. I have been replacing things lately well before they were needed, just to tune it up. With what I have done in the last year I should be good from 380K to 400K miles as far as most of the maintenance items go. I am actually going to the junkyard tomorrow to try and see if I can snag a spare engine and manual transmission for it. I wanted to do a port and polish and other stuff while it was open last time, but I didn't have time. I might as well get another engine and tune it up in my spare time. It currently has an automatic but I would really like to put a manual transmission in it. I Might as well try while pick-n-pull is having a 50% off sale. One of the cashiers said it would be around $250-$300 for the transmission swap with sale prices for the list of parts I showed him the other day.

    Roughly 190000 on mine. Had to use CARFAX and ECM data to get the mileage due to a failed VSS and a sprung (rolled back) odometer.
