That really depends on how well the car is maintained, more than anything else. Regular oil changes are THE MOST IMPORTANT thing you can do to make a car last a long time. Change the oil RELIGIOUSLY every 3,000 miles, and the engine will easily last 200,000 miles. The same theory applies to all the fluids. Transmission, brake, and power steering fluids should be flushed every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. If you change these fluids at the intervals described you should get 200k or more out of it. Make sure to take care of minor repairs as they are needed before they become major repairs. If you do not maintain the car in this manner, expect to get 125k and the car will be worn out.

We bought a 88 LX new and drove it over 160,000 miles. Gave it to our son and his wife who put 8000 more miles or so on it until hitting a deer which totaled it. Our next was a 95 that went 96K until an impatient driver creamed it while passing a line of traffic in a no passing zone going the same direction just as my wife made a left turn. He hit the left rear corner, spun it out and, yup, another total. Our 02 that replaced it now has over 86K and is my daily driver as a regional sales manager. We're hoping the Edge we just bought in September will perform up to the bar set by it's 3 predecessors!

We hit 200,000 miles today and it's still going strong with no sign of stoping. (2001 Ford Taurus)
