Engines: How many have trouble free miles ?

With the high interest & discussion about the KSDS update recall -
I’d like to see us report here: how many “trouble free miles” we all have had
OR
how many of us have had an “engine failure” - ( caused by bad connecting rod bearings or engine fires )

pcguy said recently that he has 50,000 trouble free miles ( tfm )

I have 37,000 tfm and mine runs smooth & great


Love my Honda ST1300 motorcycle

I'm 2nd owner, bought used last Sept, 2017 Sportage EX (2.4L engine) at a little over 42000 miles (68000 km) and runs like a dream with no problems.
Take care

2017 Sportage EX just turned two years old in March. Had 14,703 trouble free, we LOVE this car miles. Then the KSDS software update on December 24th of last year. Trouble free miles ended the next day (Christmas!) via "limp mode" and it was at the dealership from the 26th of last December until last Friday, April 19th. No engine replacement, just a replacement harness.

So, I'll need to reset the "trouble free" miles. We now have 236 trouble free, hold your breath while driving, stay in far right hand lane on Interstates miles!!!

You won't get any insights regarding this topic as we have discussed this endlessly the past year now. The 2017 and newer models are reliable for the most part. There is a very small but very vocal group who had negative experiences, but that is to be expected with any mass produced product. Even if there is some further lurking issues, it won't become apparent until people start getting up to 80 to 100 thousand miles.
