Not really. Cars do hundreds of thousands of miles and things wear out. People don't maintain their cars and a lot of people never open the hoods until the car won't start. The modern electronics are excessively complicated but that is the way it is.

Cars are made of plastic, metal and rubber, and do wear out like F_O_R mentioned. The auto makers are not in the business to produce vehicles that last 20-30 years. They want to sell you new ones. $$$$$

Now if we can reduce the number of questions of what engine will fit and or swapping engines from one car to another, I would be OK with that.

Even if cars were built to last a million miles they would still need a lot of maintenance and repairs. The cars would cost 5x as much but they would be built with heavier duty parts which would also cost a lot more. I do wonder what you could accomplish by spending a couple of extra thousand bucks in terms of longevity.
