The Geo Prism is a twin of the Toyota Corolla. Both made in the same factory in California. They are extremely reliable and trouble free autos. With proper maintenance, you can easily expect one of these cars to go 175-200,000 miles without major repairs. By proper maintenance, I mean following the maintenance schedule in the owners manual to the letter. Changing not only oil & filter, but Transmission Fluid, Power Steering fluid, brake fluid, coolant, air filter, fuel filter, and doing all maintenance exactly as spelled out in the manual. How long it will last depends on many, many things. How it is serviced, driven, and location. Long trips on the highway are easier on a vehicle than short trips in the city. So there is no really good answer to your question.
For Example: We own a 1994 geo prizm and it has been a great car for the price. It currently has 175,000 miles on it. So far since 120,000 miles we have to replace the timing belt, water pump, and clutch which seem like regular upkeep to me given how many miles the car has seen. Overall we are very impressed and I would not be surprised if we were able to get this car over 200,000 miles.
With proper maintenance probably 200,000
250,000 miles is about average with proper maintenance.250,000 miles is about average with proper maintenance.
200 000-300 000 miles, then cross your fingers... of course the better the maintenance the longer it will last
I can tell you that my 1997 Mustang 4.6L GT convertible has 190K miles, mostly highway driving and good maintenance.
Normal engine maintenance should be between 10000 and 15000 miles. overall maintenance will be ongoing and regular.
For a car to make it to 1 million miles it has got to be maintained with diligence. At 1 million miles the maintenance would be no different than it was at 100,000, 200,000, 300,000, etc. In other words all maintenance is important on a car with that many miles.
You engine has a chain and NOT a belt. No maintenance is necessary.
Scheduled maintenanceI think that the prism is a Toyota base so 135000 is not a problem and if nothing is broken then don't replace it. You might want to have the brakes checked and have the bearings repacked while it is in there, otherwise keep up with regular maintenance such as trans fluid changes, differential oil change, engine oil changes, fuel filter and repair any problems as they occur and you should be fine. My Toyota went 235000 with regular maintenance before anything really severe happened.
With proper maintenance probably 200,000 miles
300,000 miles is possible with proper maintenance.
The life expectancy for all BMW's is projected to be 300k miles, without replacing any of the main components such as the engine, transmission, alternator, ect. The 335i is a little bit different considering it has a twin turbo. The life of a turbo is projected generously at about 150k. BMW's turbo's on the other hand are expected to last to 200k miles. With the proper maintenance and up keep, the BMW 335i is expected to live up to at least 200k miles.
If it has not been abused and had regular maintenance it can last 200-300 miles. Without maintenance and abuse they can last 35000 miles.
All maintenance is communicated to you from the dash display. There is no "scheduled" maintenance except oil every 5K miles and air filter 15K if you are in dusty conditions. The car will tell you when it needs something.
This Lexus maintenance light illuminates every 5,000 miles driven on the vehicle. This is a reminder light that will indicate when maintenance service is needed.
With proper maintenance should last approx. 250,000 miles
A newer vehicle with proper maintenance probably 150-200,000 miles
No, with proper maintenance it can last 250,000-300,000 miles.
The maintenance schedule of a Chevrolet Tahoe recommends changing the oil every 3000 miles and rotating the tires every 9000 miles. The schedule also recommends flushing the transmission every 30,000 miles.
With proper maintenance and care, indefinitely.
With proper maintenance, most vehicles will go from 200,000 to 250,000 miles
With proper maintenance probably 150-200,000 miles
about 100000 to 150000 miles, with great maintenance 200000
Tushar, With a Honda, as long as the scheduled maintenance is followed 113K miles is not even half the life of the engine. Stick with your maintenance schedule and you will get over 300K out of your car. Just remember, DON'T PUT OFF YOUR MAINTENANCE.... Good luck, Tom
If you follow the recommended maintenance schedule your vehicle will last longer and perform better.
I have found this maintenance schedule on the site of a dealership up in Canada, this means that instead of miles it uses kilometers, however you can convert them to miles pretty easily. http://www.metrokia.ca/en/service/maintenance/index.spy 8000 Km is about 5000 miles. 1 mile = 1.609 km 1 km = 0.621 miles Most cars in America have a maintenance schedule which requires service between 3000 to 5000 miles. Since I can't be sure that this information is coming straight from Kia I would make sure that service is done any time between 3000 and 5000 miles.
