Im going to have to travel from about 1,200 miles to about 1,500 miles and the dash board says 200,000 miles but the motor was just replaced in 2009 and I just got a new battery on 2/1/14 so will I make the drive!

The mileage and new engine and battery don't mean anything. It's the condition of the rest of the car. My '88 Grand Caravan has well over 400,000 miles and I'll be trusting it in a few months to go across the country. I've seen cars with 50,000 miles that I wouldn't trust any further than I'm willing walk back home.

I'd have to agree with caradiodoc. It's great that the engine's been rebuilt and a new battery, but that won't help any if the brakes fail or the tires are bad, etc. I'd take it to a trusted mechanic and have them check it out.
