As kirksss said ...mechanically as long as you keep it well maintained it will go on for miles, unfortunately you may want to buy a mig welder at the same time. Corrosion issues all over with these.

That little 1.5L will roll over the odometer if maintained well. The transmission on the other hand, if it was stick, would last as long as the motor. The automatic, well, it's 30 years old... If it's the original tranny, you're one of the lucky ones.
