it can last for many more years. will it? that's a tough one. I have seen some that have 300k (not many) but it can. I have also seen some that never hit 100K. Proper care helps but I think there is a little bit of luck that makes them last. I have a customer that has a ford tempo with 450K and he's still driving it delivering newspapers every morning. I have been telling him to get a new car for years. He's still driving it.
