18 months, my 2016 ST1. Already at 40K. Makes me sad, because at this rate, It'll be worn out in a few years. The upside is I'll buy a new ST then, or whatever the newest model is.

Bought my 2014 last year on June 30. Had 15,300 miles. Now it has 38,900 miles. Almost at a year. Ugh. I understand.

But really, bought in Jul 2015, just over 40k. I've been trying to use the wife's Jeep on family trips the last few weeks to help.

Yes, that's good to know. So far at 40K (knocks on wood) no issues. Never been back to the dealer since I drove it out of the showroom with 6 miles on it. I've done all maintenance myself, kept all receipts in the manual/logbook. Still on the original F1s, for now.

Just turned over 44,000 in less than a year of ownership.

Majority of those miles are work related including Uber.

Another 3,000 or so miles traveling to tracks from Sacramento to Las Vegas.

How do your Uber customers like riding in the ST? Do any of them even take notice?
I get compliments all the time.

No complaints about the exhaust at all.

I did get one question about the suspension being stock because that person felt the ride was stiff.

Rating is 4.83

Oh I got docked one fare because I decided to do 3-4 WOT pull without asking. She said she would complain to Uber, fine they docked my fare but never said anything...lol

I get on it on occasionally doesn't pull as good with four people in the car though.

I bought mine in August and am over 40k. Don't sweat miles, they mean almost nothing when they're put on quickly. I've known a guy who put over 300k miles on several different Cavaliers and Escorts with almost no problems. My SE had 204k when it was totaled and ran like new, looked well maintained (it wasn't), and never broke. I don't drive like an old lady and I do not spend any unnecessary time on maintenance. With any of my cars, all I ever do is change the oil with synthetic and replace whatever is worn or breaks and the only car I ever had that was an unreliable POS was a Datsun 260Z with low miles I bought from the original old lady owner (I also had a 240Z. As an aside, these cars have become highly overrated lately—they were decent in their day because they were cheap and their day was over forty years ago. They didn't even have decent steering feel with manual racks). Things may wear out with miles, but high miles means they aren't lemons and with a hint of mechanical sympathy and an eye on conditions of things before they become a bigger problem (tires, front end, brakes, etc.), plenty of cars can do 200k with a shrug nowadays.

2013, 75,000 miles, runs and pulls like it did with the 1st 1,000. Still fun to drive everyday. Love annoying people that think they are fast in the corners and I'm rolling on the FI all-seasons. No squeaks or rattles.

2013 I bought new 4 years ago come this August. Fixin to turn 89k. She's had her quirks and if you get close enough you'll see the blemishes, but overall it's been a fun reliable car that still makes me turn my head when I'm walking away. A lot of great memories in all those miles so it will be hard to let her go when the time comes.
