I have a 2000 that has 150k miles, so I'd think you can get probably a lot more than 150k if you get the oil changed regulary, etc..

It's not predictable, and it depends entirely on how much you're willing to spend on it. I don't see a whole lot of them over 150K. Personally, I would never spend the money to put a transmission or engine into a '94, but some people would. That said, you may be lucky to make it to 150K on the original transmission. On the other hand, you might get extremely lucky and see 250K. The Vulcans are (usually) good for a very, very long time (300K and beyond).

Idk what type of person owned my car before me, but it started out with 75k miles and now its at 112k miles. A few maintenance problems here and there, but no troubling sounds so far, so it will probably last another 100k or more (vulcan durability ).

MWT made it to like 200k or something and someone just make it to 250k.

I'd rather have a rustbucket than a rice rocket!

I sold my 87 Wagon in 2001? with 241K on the original engine and transmission. The transmission was tired, and the engine had a broken head bolt for since 70K miles, but was still running fairly well when the Buyer drove it away. Not smoking or puking on the floor.

Vulcan will last beyond 300k without a doubt but the tranny is another story Just depends if you want to pay for a new Tranny when the old one breaks.

Oh and as for the tranny, mine went on XMAS day and I spent $2400 for a complete rebuild so subtract a 2000 miles from 155342 and that is when MY TAURUS lost its tranny..... lol....as you can see I am in a GREAT MOOD...

Out to learn EVERYTHING!!
