    I honestly don't think demand will be any different on parts even though Ford will stop selling the car over here in the States. Even though a new model is being produced overseas, a lot of the parts do carry over to an extent and being that is it a very common/mainstream vehicle, parts should still be readily available. For what it's worth, I can still find parts for my 18 year old Audi with no issues.

    I bought this as my retirement car. I've seen too many people who retire and think that they can finally get that big car they've always wanted. Then, 15 years later they're heads barely reach to see out the windshield and they feel the car is too big for them to drive. Plus they can't afford the gas for their behemoth. This car is small, can get good fuel economy when it's wanted, has enough room to haul things when the rear seat is folded down, and of course has the handling and zip of a sports car. There really is nothing else on the market that fulfills all those "needs". Don't know what I could replace it with, so I'll just keep it running.

    I think for those (like me) who do mostly highway miles (about 75-90%) getting 200k miles would be easy.
    A friend of mine got a 225k mile Elantra, and did another 60k miles on it. So it wouldn't surprise me, if Ford can do 250k highway miles.
    It'll take quite some time getting there at 15-20k miles a year though, which is why the question.

    IIRC other than usual maintenance he had to replace a radiator at some point. but Im missing the thread...
    I saw @antarctica24's posts about his legendary car. He reported being stock up to 150k miles, then adding lots of power. At 175k he was still on the original clutch, belts and hoses, and said he'd had no repairs or issues, which was all great news to me.

    Here's his thread, I just found it-

    He now has 177k miles on it, in 3 years (last post was in 2017).
    It's better to get 250k miles on a car in 3 years, than 175k miles in 10 years.
    I bet a lot of them were highway miles, as he lives in Australia?

    It'll probably rust out prior having to worry about part availability. Hopefully it will surprise me...

    Very interested in this thread. I bought mine in April (new 2017) for a 144 mile daily commute, about 40k per year. At 24.5k today, halfway from MO to Octane Academy! So far, just oil. I do hope the car's good for 200k, cuz I love it, and will love it even a tiny bit more when it's paid for. I'm not retirement age yet, but I'm pushing 50...and I will not go gently into responsible camryship, no, not ever.
