Going the Distance: Ford Owners are Proud of their Miles

Our vehicles become a part of our family and sometimes we don’t ever want to let them go to that great big parking lot in the sky. This is especially true when they’ve clocked high-endurance miles on the odometer.

Ford cars and trucks are tough. We expect a lot out of them and they deliver. Today, we’re sharing fan-submitted stories about their cars and trucks that have gone the distance and rolled well into six digits.

Does your Ford sport impressive miles? Grab the High-Miler badge and wear it with pride!

Drove to the Moon. Now on my Way Back. See You All Soon.

Where have you driven lately? Gary O. drove to the moon and is now on his way back. Kind of.  He’s logged over 250,000 miles on his 1994 Explorer Sport and neither he, or the Explorer, plan on stopping anytime soon.

534,000 Miles…Still Going Strong

As a volunteer fireman, Joe B. is pretty hard on his F-150. It’s become a part of his family and he even plans on keeping it around when its driving days are done.

1965 Ford Pickup

Stacy F. shared the 1965 F-250 that was passed down from her grandfather and is still in the family. This cattle-hauling farm truck has 114,000 on the odometer but it has done many more miles than that.

Fly the Highway With an Awesome Focus

Trucks aren’t the only high-mileage stars, though. The Focus is Oscar M.’s commuter car. He clocks 160 miles per day and his ZX4 keeps on motoring along.

500,000 + Miles And Counting

Marvin J. is proud of his truck and he should be; his F-150 has over 520,000 miles on it and it’s still in near-perfect condition.

Harvey Leathart My 2002 7.3L F250 Super Duty has over 226,000 miles! I know that is not too many for this truck, and will turn it over to my Grandson in about 4 years! I am 64 years old and have never owned anything but a Ford made product. I have owned 15 Ford made products that includes two Mercury's. My newest is a 2014 Fusion that we got for my wife. We just Love it. This is one fine automobile!! It was purchased from my hometown dealer, Ryan Ford.

Dominic P I've personally put 551 000 KM on a 1997 Toyota Tercel before trading it in on my 2010 Ranger. This car was pretty much all original except for tires, brakes, battery, shocks, water pump, one fuel injector and 4 seals, and a couple of wheel bearings. That's it! Yes, the starter, alternator, radiator, heater core, exhaust system, etc.., was never changed. I believe that you can make any vehicle last providing you do the maintenance and necessary repairs. The amazing thing about going the distance with a vehicle is the minimal repairs and breakdowns required to keep driving.
