A friend of mine just picked up a 2016 GT350 with...get this 150,000mi! A one owner car that was used as a daily driver to work, 108mi per day, mostly interstate, for 4yrs! Car appears to be in excellent condition, with all service records. Previous owner has had 20 oil changes in this time btw. Driving the car you would never know it had this kind of mileage. No rattles, runs strong and no oil consumption issues noted. If I didn't know, looking at the car and driving it, I would guess 40-50K on the car. Previous owner said no one has ever sat in the rear seats and maybe only 5-6 people have ridden in the passenger seat! Car is like new inside. Still running on original water pump and alternator also. Any other true high mileage GT350's out there?
Wow thats pretty crazy, I think thats a new record. How much did he get it for? The highest mileage on cars.com are around 50,000 miles and they are going for about 45k. So maybe he bought it for 20k? Not bad if everything works fine.

Pretty sure your buddy just broke the record here.

He got a deal on the car...I don't want to say how much. He has recently registered on this site and I will let him disclose what he gave for it if he wants. When you go to look at a car like this, you really don't know what to expect. Could have been your avg high mileage used up car...but it wasn't. The original owner was a 77yr old car enthusiast, no kidding, who really took care of the car and just used it to commute in. Amazing condition. I opened the oil fill cap and the engine was spotless inside. Twenty oil changes with synthetic oil and factory filters tend to do this. Deal also included the Ford performance gift set with crankshaft display, painting, etc. and a brand new GT350 car cover still in the box. Not to mention full maintenance documentation, window sticker, everything pertaining to the car and its history. I told my friend I would be all over this deal if I was in the market for a GT350...Which if I didn't have to have a convertible, I would be. I told him he probably has the highest mileage one out there.

Holly crap 2 years and only 6000 miles. I live a lot closer to work so I only have 31k on it now.
Completed 2.5 years and still have 5200 miles. GT350 is just a stress buster for me. I daily drive a 2015 Genesis.

I purchased my 2016 on my birthday Feb 2019. It had 5,600 miles on it when purchase and now has 13,400 miles. I'm needing to do my 2nd oil change. No issues and so much fun to drive.

I think we can all say many of us no longer have daily drivers with NCOVID19. :( I'm now taking mine out 1 day a week for about 30-40 minutes thrill drives. Be safe everyone!

My car is a '16 and I just crossed 23,700. Even after a 2200 mile trip out from Milwaukee to San Diego to relocate.

After a round trip from SF to San Diego I’m just about to hit 20k on my ‘17. Far from the highest mileage but I am pleased to say up to this point that the car has been problem free aside from the characteristic rattles.

How was the drive? I drove from New Hampshire all the way to Santa Cruz in my other car and there was a whole bunch of random debris and rocks that I hit on the road. I was scared a few times that I did some serious damage to my car that I had to pill over and check it out.

I'd love to do a trip like that in my GT350 but I don't want to have a big rock ruin my day since the car sits so low.

It is a shame those Gen 1 engines do not last !
Yep... I took it out for a test drive and it rips! No rattles or vibration. Highway miles and proper maintenance pay off.

Unbelievable! That is awesome to see. I hope we all enjoy our vehicles a little more than we do now. I feel terrible not driving mine more.
