    Re: How many miles can you put on a Ford?

    My dad had a ranger that had a lot of miles on it. I don't remember how many, had to be at least 200,000+. All that I remember is that it had so many miles it ran out of spots on the odometer, so the first digit wasn't shown right anymore.

    As many as you want, if you are willing to spend the money to replace parts as they wear out, and to then manufacture parts or use substitutes when the original designs are no longer available new or used.

    Boy you sure Own3d me as they say. Wow a million miles on that silverado, kinda like that Ford van, aside from the chevy going through 5 transmissions, but the engine is original. But hey its ALMOST the same, right?


    My buddies plow truck silverado is comin up no 260,000 miles it does have massive blowby but something that lived its entire life plowing is pretty darn impressive.

    I almost forgot. My father owned a '98 Buick Regal GS. The car, when sold last year, had over 180,000 miles on it. Original everything except for belts and hoses. He replaced those only because he thought you had to after a certain amount of time. The last two years my father owned it, it was my little brother's car. Zero problems ever on that car.

    Lots of signatures for GM, best I can figure is there's tons of highschool kids out there with some free time during studyhall.

    I wish I had some more computer time like back in the day for this quid pro quo stuff, its kinda fun.

    Ahh, but if its all high school kids making these signatures wouldn't that be even better for GM? I mean high school kids are pretty hard on a vehicle.

    And if the "high school" comment was directed at me, your wrong. I am a college kid that knows how to browse the internet while studying. Its one of the first things I learned.

    my dads '91 f-150 had almost 400k miles on it before he sold it to my uncle (purchased brand new). He now has a '94 f-150 with a 190k miles on it and both vehicles rarely needed anything

    My 1996 Taurus GL is on its 3rd owner with 196,000 miles as of July 2007. It's registration was renewed in December so it's still out there .

    My Dad's old 1995 Escort LX is at 178,000 miles.

    My old 2000 Lincoln LS hit 140,000 miles before it was wrecked.

    Re: How many miles can you put on a Ford?

    My 2002 Ford Focus has 170K mIles on it. Only parts not original:

    Timing Belt/Tensioner/Water Pump/Plugs/Wires. Part of the 100K service(none of them were broaken Just preventitive maintenance)

    Windsheild (3 times)

    Tires (on 3rd set)

    Brakes (on 3rd Set)

    Um....
    Oil... many times. every 5K

    Yeah, SO, thats IT....

    Pretty reliable car (only paid $9999 new in '02)


    Friends Dad has a 1997 Chrysler Concorde, High 200K. Like 260K or something like that. Still runs good. But will probably not pass smog again...

    My mom has a 1986 Ranger 6cyl and a 1987 Bronco II, also 6cyl, One has 180K or so and one had 220K before the transmission went...
