The car receives prompt servicing. Have heard can expect 190,000-200,000 lifetime miles. Is this accurate? If so, we know to expect about 3 more years of around-town driving. Can the life of the engine have a higher estimate?

Now the life of an engine is dependent on how it maintained. I have a truck with just under 300000 on it and just sold a Taurus with 335000 on it. So what I am saying is change oil as required with a good filter and keep things maintained and you get lots of miles out it. I have been using high mileage oil sense around 150000. None of them use any oil either.
