One year and 18k miles of joy.

Saw in a different place a guy posted up he was going to start modding his fist now the he had 80K miles on and the warranty was up.. Me I don't even have 8K on my FiST of 17 months LOL (but i do know it intimately!!!)
I'm at 10 months old with 24k KMs

Haven't had the speaker issue again.. fluke?
10 months and 19k miles so far
36k miles, so it has just dropped off the warranty.
Celebrating our six-month anniversary today and 2870 miles on her so far as it's mostly a weekend car. No issues to report (and at this mileage level there shouldn't be).
Thanks for letting me know, Bavarian. Should this issue ever occur again, please don't hesitate to reach out; I'll be here. Enjoy that ST!
I rolled 50,000 miles yesterday.
Only 15k on mine and had it since nov 2013
41,000 in 21 months
Only 48000 miles since buying on April 21 2014. Bone stock auto crosser and DD (obviously). Only mods are TB Performance 2 pt bar, Michelin PIlot SS and currently first (HS) At our local autox. Still a fantastic car with little signs of wear or degradation in performance. My job requires me to drive 1100 miles a week miles a week so the miles have add up quickly. The way I see it is that this car was meant to driven and abused as commuter cars. I see plenty of fleet vehicles in Fiestas because they're solid, frugal and reliable. At this rate I should be at 100k this time next year and no worries whatsoever. I just switched to Shell Rotella T6 after using Motorcraft synthetic blend for the first 10k and then using Mobil 1 synthetic. I will doing a transmission oil change with Motul at 50k. Does anyone know when it would be best to change the spark plugs, brake fluid, and coolant?
Ford maintenance interval requires the spark plugs & coolant to be changed at 100,000 miles.
Astonishingly, Ford has no change interval required for the brake fluid, ever! But I know BMW requires the fluid to be changed every two years. Since brake fluid has a tendency to absorb moisture and then corrode anything it comes in contact with, I change my fluid every two years like BMW. Those ABS components wouldn't work too well when rusty, and the fluid boiling point gets lowered with the addition of moisture.
Wondering when I should change all the Bushings to poly... Car still feels super tight with 33k on it... And how long the stock shocks will hold up?

Figure on beginning to feel the shocks wear at about 35k or so.
My ST just passed 41k miles and I'm trying to convince myself that I can wait till 50,000 to change the shocks. Vehicles with stiffer springs (like our ST) exhibit worn shock symptoms a little bit differently than cars with softer springs and it can sometimes be difficult to detect if you're not driving vigorously. So when I'm commuting, I never notice it, but if I up the velocity a bit, then the handling begins to feel a little jittery.
Just passed 73K on mine in under 2 years. Cobb stage 3 and no issues. Love this car!
