    I am a little over 24,000... Just curious where others are. I have had mine since December 2013. Use it to commute to and from work ~ 110 miles round trip. I also have made a couple long distance trips with it.

    My only complaints so far are the OEM tires and brakes both wear quickly. The brakes on my previous commuter wore out at 85,000 miles over the same commute, same driving style. The OEM tires wearing out was expected with that 140 tread wear, (10k miles were driven on snows). Wish Ford would have chosen a better tire. I have switched to BFG gForce sport comp 2's which ended up being a little meatier too.

    I also wish the Navigation option came with lifetime traffic... That would have been nice.

    I bought mine December '13 as well, but only have 5,000 miles on the clock so far, so you certainly have me beat by a large margin

    I'm just over 15k miles. Still a decent bit of life on my tires and brakes but Florida roads are pretty easy on the car. No problems yet *knocks on wood*

    I know someone who bought a new car at the beginning of June and was over 5K miles by the beginning of July. :p I barely hit 15k a year, if even that.

    Oct 25th purchase and just rolled over 25000 miles. I've made probably at least 15 trips from CT to VA, 1000 miles round trip. Work pays for that so that helps offset the high milage.

    This thread is great - are any of you 'higher mileage' guys experiencing any issues? Just curious...

    The entertainment system freezes up every so often. Usually I just turn it off and it works again. Other than that, it's awesome.

    Never had to do anything but change the oil. My driver's side mirror vibrates a bit on the highway, so I'm going to schedule that to be looked at, but overall a very solid car.

    In three weeks, mine will be one year old. Just turned 7,000 miles, so I might be in the running for the slowest to roll up miles in a FiST. I do like hearing from you high mileage folks, especially to find out what kind of tires you're replacing the Potenza RE50A's with.

    I've had my car since last summer. Approx 26.5k miles. I've taken a couple trips to northern california, and do regular trips to san diego (I live in los angeles). no major issues. last service i did oil change, air filter and front brake replacement. runs like a champ.

    17k miles
    Clutch pedal replaced, clutch slave leaking and needed replacing. Gear box had to come out to Fix it.
    Clutch has never been the same.
    I wish someone would steal this thing. I curse the day I bought it.
