All depends on your level of maintenance, how you drive the car and how worn the internal components are.

Final answer: Impossible to tell, drive on

Ooh!! What about mine? It'* at 181,690Mi right now. I've been driving it since 151k. I change the oil every now and again, sometimes 3000, sometimes 5000. Sometimes it'* a quart low.... I also make sure that the tach works daily.

Soon as you stop driving it as much, it will literally fall apart. The constant motion is holding it together.
