Default How many miles to expect?

I am sure there has been a thread on here before about this but I had not seen it. I just have had my 2011 ranger a month or so and I must say I live it. It is very comfortable and gets good mileage and I have used it several times to haul stuff. My question is how many miles do some of you get on these rangers if you take care of them.

If you take good care of them, I'm sure you can expect WELL over 150K. My truck is currently at 53,000 miles and it's still running like new. Just make sure to change the oil regularly, get the usual maintenance checks, and be gentle on it.

I have 158k at the moment.

I've had many coolant problems, and replaced a valvecover gasket is all.

Coolant problems would be fixed if I could figure out what the deal was lol

I had 83000km on my 07 when I turned it in when the 3 year lease was up.

I washed it 2 times
I gave it 3 oil changes total.
I beat it like a red headed step child

Pretty much zero maintenance.. zero care.. I jumped curbs with it, drove over everything i could... Brake torques... second and 3rd gear rubber.. donuts... BEAT THE SHIT outta this thing.. for 3 years.

And it drove like it was brand new when I turned it in.

That's why I bought one to keep.

I've got a 2002, and have 107k or so on there. She is reliable, and just as long as you up on general maintenance, she will be fine, man....Treat her like the love of your life....

I have a '97 2.3 I-4 with a 5 speed manual. I have almost 188,000 on it. I take good care of it and don't rough it much. How many miles can I expect with regular oil changes and good treatment?
Any ideas?

250,000 +; but anything should last 100,000 miles + if it is taken care of. Shouldn't matter if it is a Hyundai or a Ford. Manufacturers lead us to believe that all we have to do is change oil and put gas in a vehicle (which is so untrue). There is a reason they call it preventitive maintanence.

All so very true ,
Maintainance is the key .

Little stuff like change the oil , trans fluids , all filters , rear end fluids , When they need to be , and don't kill it , drive it , sometimes hard but don't murder it . My last vehicle had over 188 K ( dodge 1500 Extended cab ) and the one before that , 89 GMC Sierra , 230 K . All new when I started . My Sierra was a big truck and we had a ball towing , and 4 wheelin with this , and knock on wood , Always got home . Some stuff does break and you can't help it .
