mine has 100,000 (+/-) and still going strong--except for needing a new fuel pump Mine is still going strong 128000 miles after a new radiator and new rear transaxle.good luck We are at 173,860 miles with only a few rattles. No oil burn or leaks. A transmission oil and filter change may be good if not done yet. Our only problem now is electrical with the goofy computer flashing false 4low and 4high along with OD off indicators and no radio display is present. O yes, we also can only open three of four doors. The locks are a constant pain!!! My Mountaineer has about 120,000 miles on it. Everything is still running pretty good except the radio display doesn't work (can be fixed for about $125) and my power antenna is acting up, won't go up, and can be replaced with aftermarket parts. Other than that is acts like any other truck with that mileage on it Same as the previous answer. Did have to replace the door hinges after 130K miles.
