    I have a 2007 f 150 with 225,000 miles and still going replaced the transmission around 185,000 radiator,heater core and brakes and rotors several times. Just wondering how long will Betsy go before she completely blows up? Btw,only on the third set of tires got over 100,000 miles on the first set.

    As long as you keep replacing parts, it'll go until it falls apart from rust.

    Exactly what gooseman said. My 07 Silverado had 435,000 miles when I sold it to my next door neighbor a year ago. Engine went 270k and was on it’s 3rd transmission. Drove like a brand new truck.

    At 312,000 with fairly minimal parts and labor. Just put a new MAF on yesterday. Lots of oil changes. Lots of rotated tires. Goal is 400k, then sell.

    Most vehicles will last far longer than people think if they're halfway maintained.

    Any vehicle will last just as long as you want it to last. Just keep replacing the parts as they wear out.
