Most newer cars are good for 200k miles easily. That said, you might want to check out, where real owners post problems they have had with their vehicles. Read what kinds of problems others are experiencing and see what you might likely face.

It all depends on how the vehicle was taken care of . also how it was driven. some people are led footed & that puts a lot of stress on the tranny as well as U joints. you can always car fax it.

I know original post is old....I have a 2003 Tahoe 140,000+ miles it's 2015 now. Changed oil every 3000 miles. I drive a little rough, not jack rabbit, just going around idiots and texters going 55 or slower in the left lane etc,, stuff like that.. Just starting with noises 2014. Piston slapping. Power lagging a little. I don't push it now.
