That depends on many factors, including what engine. The most important is, if all maintenance items were done according to the owner's manual. If so, it is very feasible to get 175,000 miles before it needs an overhaul. It also depends on how and where it is driven. There is not definite answer to your question. like above its alot about how you drive. i had a friend with a 98 caviler that made it 248,000 94 Cavalier w/ 279,000+ miles with care and oil changes
