My odometer looked twice as bad 2 weeks ago :)
Still going strong at 200750 miles, with only routine maintenance.
New shocks and struts, and brakes last summer.
Did you ever have the valve clearances inspected? That's the only thing I'm afraid to tackle myself. 74,100k on my 2013 EX.

Weedhopr what model Forte? What type of driving do you do? Have you done any work like trans services or antifreeze, serpentine belt or anything else?

I'm at 177,000 now on a 2010 SX and I drive 150 miles round trip a day, 20 miles of Trpk at 75 mph and the other 55 miles being two lane smooth sailing roads with some stops. I do the 75 miles in 1 hour and 25 minutes, so I'm pretty much moving all the time. All in all, somewhat pretty easy miles. My car seems to run better than when I bought it.

2010 Forte EX. Mostly highway miles commuting to and from work.
Passed 266666 trouble free miles on my way home tonight!
Second set of brake pads, first time replacing all brake rotors 2 weeks ago.
Nothing but routine maintenance (fluid and filter changes, tires, 2 sets of spark plugs, shocks and struts around 150,000 miles)

I love threads like this! Gives me some hope that my car will last a long time.
Currently at around 93,000 kms, and running like a top.
Only complaint is the stock suspension sucks. The rear end is all over the place on bumpy roads.

"Karlee" 2012 Kia Koup [red] @ 86,000 miles. So far so good. Routine oil changes, replaced spark plugs. I bought at 50,000 miles almost a year and a half ago. I love her. Cleaning my brakes this weekend and due for another oil change.

Daaaaaaaaaaamn (y)
Judging by the display, that's not an SX so it's the 2.0L. Impressive. What year is it?

I can't brag. My 2011 SX (2.4L) is still under 50,000
