There are no specific miles that a vehicle will last. If it's been maintained and you know what it needs to get it inspected and roadworthy and a good price, go for it. But you know going into the deal, but keep in mind that anything can break or go wrong at anytime. But that's true for any vehicle.

it all depends on how the vehicle was driven & taken care of. 200000 + miles is alot for a 2003 . you're looking (if it hasn't been done already) at a timing chain and transmission, if you see smoke out the exhaust then maybe a new engine.

I have a friend that is at 297,000 on his trailblazer. He is going for the 300,000 mile mark for his $3000 from Quaker State.

My 2008 ENVOY has 280,000 and has only needed 2 water pumps. Still running great! Going to drive the wheels off! and then just buy new ones! Mostly city miles too. With only moderate maintenance.
