The average expected life span of any reasonably well maintained vehicle is about 10 model years or 150,000 miles. However, with proper maintenance and a good reputable repair facility under the hood when needed any vehicle can far surpass that. The key to a vehicle's long life is maintenance, good repairs and good driving habits. HTH. -Jim

Jim is right. Pay strict attention to the service intervals, don't drive it like you stole it and if you hear any noise you haven't heard before have it checked out. I recently traded a 1994 GMC Sonoma pickup with 476,218 miles on it. The dealer actually bought it as an example of Chevy durability. Change the oil every 4,500 miles unless you use Mobil 1 synthetic, then you can stretch it to 10k. Unless the car is a lemon from the get go, if the the care is given, you should have little problem meeting and joining the 100k club. Good luck.

being most car makers don't require a car to even be tuned up for 100,000 miles today, unlike years ago when it was 20-30,000 miles, if you take care of your vehicle, you can get a few 100,000 miles outta it... I have seen two chevy trucks with over half a million miles... one had 510,000 and one had 954,000, that one was in junk yard. you will have to replace engine oil and transmission fluid regularly. And you will have to keep the vehicle up... but most folks don't keep a car that long, most just throw them away after 100,000 miles.. it's a throw away society... good luck and hope you get many miles from your new vehicle!

My 2004 Kia Sorento now has 297,500 miles on it with No major engine work. It was my brothers car and he took very good care of it.
