Have got 33,500 miles on my 11 plate. Incidentally, Fords just serviced it and my front pads are 20% worn (original set of pads).
There was a 58 I think on ebayfor sale the other week with 227,000 miles on it.

11 plate with just over 31,000 on the clock. Owned since new, FSH.

Replaced all 4 discs (due to grooves) and pads last year. Within past 12 months had Continental ContiSport 5 SUV tyres fitted to replace the Nokian zLines that had cracks on the shoulders despite there being 5-6 mm tread remaining.

Touch wood, so far had no major issues.

just below 72000 with no issues, ( but it is well cared for). Most mileage at weekends with anything up to 600 miles for 20 weekends. MOT today, service 16th ready for my first weekend away for the year to Silverstone.

Mine has done 62,000 miles since I bought it New. Had new pads and discs front and rear. New front springs (grotty Suffolk roads!) Last year new egr valve, was told by the Green Flag mechanic to give it plenty of wellie which I do now! Just below red line!
Still pleased with the car.

59 plate 2.0tdci 100kw fwd. Bought from new lovely car. 60k miles now. Modifications include. EBC drilled and grooved discs front and back with red stuff pads front and back. No more dust and stops really well much better than standard brakes. Resistor wires for headlights to stop them from blowing every 2 months. Stereo to an inclusive sat nav Bluetooth cd player all dash colour matching so looks original fit. Footwell lights as there were already there just put the bulbs in. Bee sting ariel so don't have to keep taking off when going in car wash. Wheel bolts replaced with shiny chrome bolts as the silly ford ones their outer casing comes off and looks rubbish. Love this car. Been with us now for 10 years in October and will be with us for at least another 7. Replaced the original battery this year, not bad for original fit, but now got a yuasa black paid a lot for it to be fair but the reviews were good.

So my 2008 MK1 has served me very well. It was the first car that was delivered to any private customer in my country. The very first car was a demo for the dealer.
Anyway, I haven't changed much. Just some wear and tear items. Like brake pads and discs, 1x alternator, 2x battery(because of hard winters here), front wheel bearings, a few bushings on front and rear axles, timing belt and that's pretty much it. It still drives very good at 272 000km. Has alot of power still, I mean overtaking is really a breeze. And gets roughly 6,5L per 100km on average.
Very happy.

My 2012 Mk1 has completed 175000km. It has been largely trouble free and enjoyable to drive.
I have replaced the brake pads and front rotors only.
Haldex service every 100k km, ATF every 50k. Cambelt and waterpump at 100k and 173k. The latter because of a leaking after market water pump.
She uses 500ml of oil between services (every 15k) and I would like to see 400000km or 250k miles.
Average fuel consumption over 100000km is 10.3L/100km which seems frugal, all things considered.

From what I've seen 60,000 miles is about service life for the earlier Powershifts, I must have spoken to at least 20 people now who've had failures.

Just poor design, no other way round it.

Thing is even if you have a professional rebuild (££££) the Plastic guides are just replaced ready to fail again..
