Most cars run until the last car payment. It's engineered into the car. After all, they want you back to buy another.

All seriousness aside, it's common today to get 200K+ out of a well maintained car. That's no guarantee otherwise warrantees would not exist.

Not much of an answer, but that's the best you will get.

Life's a gamble, you pays your pesos and takes your chances.

I've seen a few Northstars in Devilles with close to 350k miles. If taken care of, they'll last!
