Right around 26,500 +/-. Can't wait until 36,000 so I'll no longer feel guilty for having voided my factory warranty

can't you get a 60 k 5 year warranty now or something? but i bet that will run you a fortune.

With any modern car, and proper maintenence you should be able to 200K out of just about any car.

For the record, my car is 16 months old and I am at 2785 miles. But then again, she is a weekend toy and I am a bit anal when it comes to taking her out in the rain.

I think Ford offered an extended powertrain warranty on the 07s (no chg). You can get extended warranties up to 7-8 years and 100k, but they're not cheap.

We're going to need to have some kind of celebration when you break 5k

I have 5300 miles in 19 months so far. I bought a 7/75 ESP, but dumped it shortly after when I heard about the void factor for mods. You can get a 6/60 ESP Premium for 1k and a couple places are doing them for $800. I got some emails last week from Fordwarranty.com or something close to that.

18 months old and just turned 6200 miles. Mine never sees rain, but I do try to get her out once a week to keep everything lubircated. Most of my mileage comes from the occasional long-distance cruise.

'05 Sonic Blue GT w/ '07 V8 engine, 5-sp, IUP, Beige leather interior, nothing else -
just the way I wanted it. (1 of 113)
OK, so I've added a few things to it. Check my Profile - too many to list here.

58K miles, got mine in August of 2005. Its my daily driver and track warrior. I drive it everywhere. When I get the shortblock rebuilt, I think at that point I will use it for weekends only.
I didn't get the extended warranty because I knew how often I was going to drive it. I actually told the salesman I didn't want the extended warranty because I was going to "put nitrous on it and go to LACR". That took care of that conversation.....
