The tranny is very strong. With proper maintainance, and if you don't beat on it, it will last a long time. Mine has almost 180K miles on it.
The engine is a Series II, so it is prone to an intake mainfold crack which can spill coolant in to your engine which will destroy it. Check your coolant levels often, and watch for leaks. Also, get a 180 T-Stat on there to keep things cool so it won't crack. Heat is what causes it. Otherwise its a solid car with a solid powertrain.
