No awards here either: 2008 with 27,xxx miles. Only problem I have had is the transmission. It grinds bad when cold. Luckily there is a TSB for the transmission but I just haven't taken care of it yet. I am curious as well to see some of the higher mileage Mustangs and any problems they have had if any

I just passed 95,500 miles this morning on my 2005 and still going strong. Regular maintenance really does pay off in the long run.

22,xxx bought Oct '07 in Germany.... Its been through 12 countries maybe I win that catergory! Only things replaced is the recall on passenger airbag and some mice chewed up my hoodliner, dealership wrote it off as faulty wiring to keep me as a good customer... always go to them if I need anything...

I bet if we did the S197 Award for the least amount of mileage, it would have to go to BuckShot Berry. That guy NEVER drives his Mustang! LOL I think he may have 400 total miles on his 2007.
