We just hit 325,000 miles, care gets 34 mpg on the highway (86 miles each way to work). At 200,000 we replaced the struts, at 275,000 or so the timing belt went out; 3 days before the appointment to replace it. Next week we are taking it in and having the rear main seal and the clutch replaced. I paid $10,700 for it brand-new-no complaints at all!

wife's car for work. O2 sensor problems and computer problems at 80K miles. Other than that it holds up well.
