I have a 1998 Malibu with about 101,000 miles on it.
The car has had good care and I was wondering how many more miles will this car run before it needs to be replaced?
For the most part it runs fine now, but I realize this car will not run forever.
You are probably laughing about now thinking "Good God woman what do you want? Buy a new car now!!!"
Thank you for your time.
If this car is serving you well right now, then why buy a new car. Personally I would drive it till the wheels fall off if you so choose. You may need to perform a few basic repairs, due to age and mileage always better than a long term payment in my opinion.
Not at all, I have a 1995 Honda Civic with 250,000 miles on it! I understand that you want to get as many miles on your car as you can! But as for how long it will go is a difficult question, because it varies from car to car. It depends on how you drive it, (how often, road conditions, etc) and how often you have the car serviced. In my opinion, the best thing to do would be to have the car looked at by a Chevy dealer. 100,000 miles is usually about the time the car is due for a major service, so it would be a good idea to have one done. During the service, the dealer will get a good, in-depth look at the health of the car. They can tell you if anything needs to be fixed or replaced and they can give you a good idea of how many more miles you can expect to get out of this vehicle.
Best of luck!

I'm still driving my 1988 Toyota truck with 274,000 miles. As long as I keep in maintained...who knows how long. I'm shooting for 500,000!

Theres no way of predicting how long a vehicle will last. With good maintenance, some vehicles will last well over 100,000 miles - sometimes double or triple that. If you're not having any problems with it, enjoy it and keep up the good maintenance.
