I have a 2004 Mustang GT Automatic (260HP) that just hit 130,000 miles. I have given it every maintenance routine that it has required and religiously chnaged the oil at a Ford location every 5,000 miles.
Just curious if anyone can point me to statistics on the number of miles I could expect to get out of this vehicle if I continue to take care of it as I have been?
I mean, are most people getting closer to 200K on this vehicle before it dies, or would I be lucky to get up to 150k\175k?
Just curious what people are seeing.
The reason I am at 130k+ already is because it gets driven at least 80 miles a day.
Part of me wants to hold on to the vehicle until it has a major expensive issue, the other part of me wants to trade it in on a new vehicle but of course, I'm not looking forward to having a monthly car payment again either.
Just hoping to get some input. thanks

Just read your question about life expectancy. This may be a fluke but I have had 4 stangs. The best one so far was my 1989 5.0 LX Convertible. I still have her, she's still purring like a kitten. OVER 380,000 provable miles on factory engine. All I have EVER done is tune-ups, OIL changes every 6000 mi., washed the motor & under carriage. Of course I put new tires, alignments, etc. But not a darn thing to the engine, tranny, or rear end. Don't drive her much anymore but I believe that years 302 city was one of Ford's finest.
