200-250k would likely be the point where it starts to really become trashed. If you figure it has 180k now, in 8 years it has gone about 22,000 miles per year -- well above national average of 12k miles per year.

Cant really set max mileage in stone on a vechicle though. There are some that has reached 300k I know my parents old Chevy Lumina would of made it to 300k cause it ran perfect still at 200k, but then they wrecked it lol

Its honestly hard to say. Each individual car has a different life span. Some cars may last you 100,000 miles and some might last 300,000 so its all about how much you take care of it how much tlc you give your car. Just remember theres more to taking care of cars then just tires oil and brakes.

if everything is stock, yeah i'd say 200K but if anything has changed it automatically resets the life-span of that part.....I'm right nowhelping my dad look for a new engine for his truck. The only good thing about this is that now we are going to have a brand new engine in the truck. You can always easily replace body parts no problem. Any body (if well taken care of) will outlast an engine by 100-150K miles but an enigne will easily get you 150-200K miles on the impala. Remember that this is taken into accont that it's well taken care of, oil changed regularly, not pounding on the gas at every chance out there. If you drive the car to enjoy the ride and dont beat down on it and get your hands a little dirty then 200K is your tipping point, but dont look to shoot for that because who knows what could happen if you're not careful

This is a REALLY SILLLY QUESTION! No matter what car you are talking about the mileage can not be said to max at any certain amount. There are several factors. How was the car driven? How was the car maitained? How was the car's appearance kept? Was it garage kept or not? Was it highway miles or in town miles? Was the oil changed regularly? A well maintained vehicle can go and go and you can reach 200+K miles on just about any vehicle. I had an escort wagon that ran beautifully with 230K miles on ....Had to get rid of it because the clutch went out and it was just cheaper to get a new car than to continue to keep that one going. This question really has no merit and is just plain stupid!

As shelly put it exactly right, its all on how the car was taken care of. I've personally owned TWO 2000 Impala's that saw over 200k miles on them and know some in taxi service that are well past the 500k mark (most common replacement part on the higher mileage cars is the transmisson). As long as the car sees good maitenence and no problem is left unchecked too long (for example with the impala's, they have a common failure point with the intake manifold gaskets, but are generally good once fixed.)
