Good for you! Glad to see it. Was it "road trip" heavy or was the bulk true "day to day commute" miles? @mojo9691
DD all the way! I've only been on one road trip with it to the tune of 500 miles round trip. Other than that, it's been my commuter rig.

2015 Ecoboost automatic 50th Anniversary Appearance Package. I just drive it year round. No trips to the track as of yet. I lost a belt tensioner at about 25,000 miles. The first engine gave up the ghost at 46,601.1 miles. Lost the #1 crank bearing and that grenaded

the whole works. Since the day I picked it up the mirrors have been flaky and only after everything was replaced did we discover that it is a problem in the programing that as far as I know can be fixed only by disabling other features which I don't care to go without. Other than those few things she has been a great car.

I kept my car stock up until this last year. I believe she was a cali purchased no frills ecoboost model other than 10 spoke 19 inch wheels. I picked her up in Texas at 28K in 2017 and drove her to South Carolina and then north to Virginia and back home to Texas the first two months after purchase. Kept her stock until last March 2021. Since then I've added the Cobb access port V3, within two months upgraded the FMIC to a CMF street IC and charge pipe kit and Air Raid intake with AEM filter on the OEM box and bumped to a stage II tune. I've been pretty meticulous about maintenance, I've only had synthetic oil. I'm at 76K miles, averaging 23-24(city commute at 10 miles) miles per gallon while generously beating the snot out of the throttle when it's feasible. Appearance, lux wise, I have a GT350 front bumper and converted to Katzkin leather about 3 weeks ago. I love this damn car and hope to just pick up a new Maverick as a commuter and mash the throttle out of this thing.

You should tell us more about the Katskin job! I've been on the fence!

Short answer: DO IT!

Long answer: I also have a 15 Edge sport with leather/suede interior. Which do not get me wrong, is very nice. The Katskin quality is much better. The leather they use is THICK! I went pretty basic with just matching black and black stitching. You can customize the hell out of it but I wanted my car looking as close to an OE performance pack as possible. Next upgrade I have bending for that is the 8" infotainment upgrade. The kit itself is $1000 from katskins and their customer service is hands down amazing, super friendly and personal. A local installer did it for $600. If you order direct from katskins, you have to get it installed professionally. DIY is not an option and I can understand that from a business perspective. It does come with a 3 year warranty which I thought was nice. It took the local shop all day to do it, however I felt like this was worth every penny. I had leather in my 03 Eclipse and 03 Mustang GT(along with the aforementioned Edge) and I can tell a major quality difference with the katskin over an OEM leather interior.
