My '05 Sport is at 155K. It's in the shop today getting 4 tires, 2 front axles (CVs are shot and the axles cost only $10 more than new CVs), and rear struts. I've got a minor leak in the radiator and a touchy neutral position switch that I'll be taking care of over the weekend. Aside from the usual maintenance (tires, brakes, filters), I've had the privilege of paying for an A/C compressor, condenser, and a new speedometer cable.

I've been retired for 5 years now; so dom't put on a lot of miles, My son probably put on a quarter of those. Bought it down east and drove over 1800 miles in 2+ days getting it home; It was a dealer demo with 125 miles on it,got it for 13,000 less buying it there..... they couldnt give them away.
BTW it will be 9 years old oct 3.

Very nice!!
I'm up to 125k on my turbo. Ride the bike to work most days now that I'm in the southern desert. Actually and honestly, I'm contemplating trading out of it in the next year-ish. Looking at a full-size pickup.

I didn't read all the posts but from what I did read I might be pushing the lead here.

(edited to add this line) Woah, I missed the 200,000+ entry; second perhaps?

178,000 on a 2003, non-turbo 5 speed Silverstone Baja.
Mine is currently down awaiting a new transmission.
Replaced cats 3x
replaced right side half shaft 1x
Favorite tires for this vehicle are Firestone Winterforce

Platypus wrote::D Greetings from Columbia, SC where we recently got a "huge" snowfall of 5" on Sunday night (down here everything shut down for two days, no joke). I purchased my 2005 Baja with 77,777 miles on it (<I am a priest, so I liked this number!). It was a one-owner, traded in by a 71 year old who'd moved here from Massachusetts. It is nice. I traded in a 2000 Isuzu Rodo Ironman with 165,000 miles.
How did Columbia manage to get 5" of snow? We usually get at least one big snow here in Northeastern Tennessee but so far basically nothing other than a few dustings. I'm starting to wonder if we are going to get any snow.

I bought my '03 in December of 2002 and only has around 65,000 miles on it. I have allot of catching up to do. So far the only parts I've had to replace were an O2 sensor and a busted inner CV joint boot.

HAH! I was gonig to buy a MINI as a replacement for my Jeep Wrangler but when I saw the Baja in Popular Mechanics in the summer of '02, I decided that would be my replacement vehicle.

Good thing though, they have yet to open a MINI dealership in my area. The closest one is in Knoxville and I'm not driving 100 miles to have warranty work done.

My newest car in my fleet is an '08 Mustang GT. I could sell my Subaru but can't bear to part with it. AWD, truck bed despite being undersized and a tow hitch to pull my 4X8 utility trailer.
