You might on the engine, most newer cars with proper mantanience will get that many miles. It's the rest of the car that I would be more worried about surviving that long. How many miles do you put on a year?

All depends on how the car was maintained. I service my children's cars. The 96 ford has over 200G miles and the engine is going strong. Replaced the tranny once. The 99 ford has 189G miles and the tranny was replaced once. I just changed the evaporator in the AC unit. A door window motor was replaced. That's about it. The problem is no one knows about maintanence on the vehicle except the current owner. And I suspect he will not say he treated the thing like trash even if he did so.

My 1.9L 4cly escort has over 336000kms on it. My dad maintained it all its life and its still running strong, even the A/C is still running ice cold! My mothers 1998 olds eighty eight has over 500,000kms on it. 3.8v6. I dont see any reason why your Vue should not be able to make it to 300k plus.

My 2004 Saturn Vue 3.5 just turned 285,000 and still going strong, no engine or transmission problems, just regular maintenance.
