    I think I may be in the running as I turned 130,000 on my '09 yesterday and it got me wondering who, if anyone has a higher mileage GT500 than I do. I know there are plenty of you with very low miles and are for keeping them low for resale value. I have only had my car since 9/7/2018 and it already had 113K and change on it when I purchased it. It sat for almost 3 months this past winter waiting on suspension upgrades and McLeod to rebuild my clutch and recondition the flywheel. That puts me at 16,000+ in under 51 weeks of ownership. Honor system if you want, or we can take pics and post our odometer if you'd like, as there is no prize except knowing that your car has been thoroughly enjoyed.

    I purchased my 2010 new in September 2009. I have put 110,000 miles on it. You have me beat on mileage, but I know what's been done to my car in that time. LOL

    The one with the highest is the winner, they actually drive their car and enjoy it.

    Most of the problems I have had in 110,000 miles have been related to defective parts, bad install work and just dumb luck. The list is truly amazing and most of you would be surprised I’ve kept the car. LOL The only people allowed to touch my car for anything other than normal maintenance now is Power By The Hour in Palm Beack, FL. These guys are legit.

    One of the few OEM Ford issues I have had has been a intermittent drivability issue that no one could source the problem. The car would just start to shutter and buck under load. Data logging showed nothing. I just got the car back from replacing the engine harness yesterday. Apparently there was quite a bit of corrosion on some of the pins. Fingers crossed.

    I just turned 60k on my 2012 a few weeks back. Had 40k when I bought it in April of 18. I know it's not me but there is a guy on the GT500 Facebook group with 198k miles though.

    Not all mine, but I've put quite a few miles on it over the past few years.

    None that I am aware of, at least not in my ownership. I do have some things that need repair like the clutch has to be pushed really hard against the floor or the car won't crank. The AC has a slow leak somewhere, since it's a convertible I don't worry about it too much - I just put a can of freon in it whenever the air stops blowing cold. The rearend works fine but is crazy loud but with the top down 95% of the time when I drive it I don't really notice it. The drivers seat won't move forward and the drivers door panel needs to be reglued. I added a CAI, 2.5mm pulley, 90mm idler and VMP tune at 178,000 miles. I'm considering installing a 2014 TVS, 67mm VMP TB, 52lb fuel injectors, 65mm pulley and JLT 123mm CAI (vs the Steeda CAI I currently have.) I have the 2014 setup but I'm not sure if I want to tempt fate. I also have a 2014 complete rearend with 3.73 gear and larger brakes that I may install this Winter if I have time.

    If work would let me have a 2 door for travel I'd definitely have a GT500, one that get's that kind of mileage on the highway would be great! My 2016 C300 is a 4cyl turbo that get's anywhere from 32 to 38 mpg. I'd sacrifice some comfort and mpgs if I could get that close in fuel economy.

    Ahh ok, so essentially in modded til 178k? Still damn fine for not needing any major repairs. I haven't replaced the clutch since 30k miles when Ford did the TSB on mine. I have gone through the suspension for mods, smoked the Ford rearend and replaced it with a Detroit Tru-trac and I did the JLT power pack at 60k, so she's taken 550RWHP fine for the last 40k. I've got a VMP Gen3 that'll I'll be installing here in the next few months that should about round out my motor mods.

    I also have the same door panel issue. I'm just taking it to an interior shop and having them replaced. I tried reglueing and it came back undone again twice and I finally got mad one day and ripped it off the door panel. Figured on or off was better than dangling.

    My drivers door panel is coming off as well. I reglued it a few months ago, but it is coming loose again.
