Entirely dependent on maintainence, treatment, on a little luck. An N/A car could see 300K.

These cars are built well, once u get to know them, and how they work, they are really good.

I have 148,000 on my 95 and will be taking her on the road yet again next month.... Will do the tranny fluid and filter service... Oil change to Mobil 1 10-30...Replace the plugs with NGK TR55'*... New hoses and Prestone Longlife... New Gatorback belt... Clean and adjust the rear brakes... And hit the road

nothing! im at 219k right now, I'm more than likely going to get this car off before I ever find out how long it goes, the tranny'* still good for that many miles and the engines good too, I'm really at the point where I just wanna get rid of it just because it'* time to move on to something else,

Note my 93 in my sig. 204k miles and it still runs like its new. All I do to it is regular maintinence and I dont plan on letting her go till she falls apart (probably when the tranny goes, its original).

Dont forget to squirt WD-40 on any and all rust spots that you see, that will go a long way.
