Some threads here talk about making their Fits last then I just came across this article here. And she only went through 3 sets of shocks... :-)

Interesting read: '64 Comet retired after 576k miles

Nice find! I'm always amazed when I read stories of vehicles with more than a couple thousand miles - it make me wonder how it was treated and the maintenance schedules.

"She credits the longevity to a "near-obsessive" approach to the car's maintenance. "I've never been a destructive person and I've just taken care of everything, except my husbands," she told FoxNews."
