My Clio only as 38000 on the clock at 3 years oil ,
but I did have a Ford Fiesta 998cc that had over 220000 miles up, it was just getting a little smokey when cold only replacement was a water pump.
It was fitted with a bypass oil filter as a test oil was changed about 25000 miles and looked like new.
Not fitted the filter to the Clio as modern oil pumps often dont have enough excess capacity.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
