Don't count on it. With regular (not obsessive) maintenance a Taurus just keeps going and going. Not like a '60s or '70s Detroit dinosaur where 20% loss of compression after 100,000 miles could be expected. Even spending half its life at full throttle (only way to get it moving lol), this Vulcan I have just keeps going with 179,000 miles on it now.

I was meaning more along the lines of you'd see more stuff that had been obviously replaced, ie spark plug wires, alternators, other assorted goodies.

Family had a Surburban that we bought with 70k, sold with 205 about eight years later. Still ran great, but it'd had the intake rebuilt around 185k.

Go sho, i have had one for 2 years and I put 15k miles on it a year, mainly front end work was required. But I mean its been a great car, the at in mine has been awesome even being a 93 it's at 280k kilometres and still runs like its new, I run synthetic oil and I've been doing change intervals at 6000k and the oil is still gold coloured so I mean they're great cars, it just depends on if you want to deal with some parts being difficult to find
