Hey folks, just picked up a '13 ST with 185K on the clock. Yes, that's not a typo. The dude was a regional sales manager, so it is quite literally "all highway miles". It needs a turbo and some minor body work (dent in the front fender, scrape in the rear quarter, tail light lens, etc). Once I replace the turbo, I'll report back on how it's doing. Since this isn't really a "build", I figured this was the best place for the thread.

Any other high mileage ST's out there?

That's some serious miles on a 2013, especially compared to 57k on my 13.. How much were you able to pick it up for?

I am glad to hear its running still. After a year I have just over 6K miles. I should be able to have mine for 30 years at this rate. :question:

I am glad to hear there are ST's out there with that many miles on them. With appare 11270d1370925264-post-pictures-your-st-dsc00070.jpg DSC03241.JPG DSC03286.JPG ntly all systems still functioning as I plan to keep 2013 as my DD till it wears out completely. I love my ST I only have 36,600 miles on it now because I used my old car as a winter beater the last 3 winters. The mileage will be going up faster from now on as the old 92 Toronado was going to need new struts, rear shocks and tires so I sold it to a friend to use for spare parts for his 92 TRof'eo. I decided that the cost of plates and Insurance plus the repairs needed was to high. Here are some of my cars the gold 57 88 I bought in 1978 it is My first car so you can see I keep cars a long time.

those are some appropriate stickers to put on a short bus :tongue:
Haha, I take it you're a Hokie? I'd be offended, but the short bus came Wahoo'd out when I bought it.

There's another thread here somewhere with a guy with almost 400k on his. The turbo is original but he just put in a new clutch.

Looks like a good contender to strip out anything unnecessary and turn into an OT car. I bet If you removed the back seats you would have as much room as a minivan and could track tires and small tool box to the track.

MidLife-ST is over 300k. Probably around 350k by now. Nothing catastrophic. Belts, alternator, clutch...normal wear and tear items at that kind of mileage.

Yeah, I had to check out that thread--that's awesome.

Trust me, that thought had crossed my mind. Already needs some body work, picked it up pretty cheap, etc. Maybe a barely street legal, weekend HPDE type toy. We'll see.
