130000 100 All brake lines rusty and some starting to leak fluid. Removed the problematic antilock brake system pump completely and installed all new hydraulic lines from master cylinder to calipers. Works great now. 
131300 300 All 4 rotors rusted so badly they had to be replaced. Rear calipers were problematic (sticking, not releasing pad pressure) and they were also replaced. Front calipers still ok. 
136000 38 Slow leak in a/c system, pressure low and compressor stopped engaging. Added approx. 16 oz. of R134a to get pressures back to normal and a/c is working normally again. 
140000 75 Engine lost power and began popping (backfiring) through air intake system. On interstate, got towed to a Ford shop where they disconnected the faulty mass airflow sensor to put the engine in 'limp' mode to drive the final 600 miles home. 
141000 175 Replaced fuel pump module due to failing pump. Car still would run and drive but would crank for some time before it would start. Installed an OEM Delphi brand pump module, I'm a mechanic so only cost incurred was for the part. 
152000 55 Both u-joints replaced on rear drive shaft.
