Default How long will my 06' Lexus IS250 with 132K miles last?

It's paid for and still in very good shape. I get the oil changed regularly and have never had a problem with the engine. Could it last another 100K miles?

yes, easily. If you invest what you DON'T spend on a car, you can retire with some real money. I know, I did it.

No it could not. I am betting this car has no limit as to age. In one recent report as to the 2007 Ford Escape Hybrid SUV, a security company that drives these vehicles hundreds of miles per day, report over 400,000 miles on many of these models with no major issues which means original engines and transmissions. I have a Mercury Mariner hybrid version with over 70,000 miles and the brakes pads are original. Do not fool yourself, all car parts have an average life cycle. Transmissions, no matter the care and service typically can last 200,000 miles. Many last longer. The new CVTs one are so new that I cannot find data as to longevity and these are sealed units. No need for servicing the fluid. I also have a 2001 Audi TT that is doing well. As Audis go, it is more in need of care that Japanese luxury cars. There is no end. Most people just get tired of car and want new or different ones. This a recommendation. Check the service manual for cooling system and transmission service. I suspect this is a new car for you. Both the coolant fluid and the transmission fluids need to be drained and the system flushed and new liquids installed. This is a must. If you cannot find records when these services were done, then, have these done as soon as possible. They can run $100 each or more and no, do not even think that you can do these services. Leave them to a professional. Otherwise, my last recommendation is for more driving lessons. Most of us know about 10% of what we should know. Most of us do not even read the car manual. Have you? Vital and important that you do that. Best of luck and enjoy the car.

"How long will my 06' Lexus IS250 with 132K miles last?"

^^ Nobody can answer this for you because you and I both don't know. "Could it last another 100K miles?"

^^ Why not? I am sure it can!

As long as you follow your Lexus's maintenance schedule with the appropriate mileage then yes, it can. Doing oil change is one thing but focusing on other areas such as all your engine fluids (brake, differential, coolant, power steering), belts, timing chains, spark plugs, tire balance & alignment, brake pads and rotors serviced, and etc will help your car run strong for many miles. More maintenance work see link below.
