Welcome to JA.
How well have you maintained the vehicle up to now?
Is there anything wrong with the vehicle now?
That is the first thing that I would worry about. The struts will go bad over time. You may have a cv axle boot crack and joint go bad. You may also start to have oil leaks due to mileage and seals cracking and going bad. Axles you may be looking at around $250 a piece to replace. Oil leaks vary depending on what may be leaking. As far as maintenance you will be looking at around $50-$100 for you routine services. Since you have taken care of the car and if you addressed all problems you have had then the car should be pretty sound. I dont think you will have any mechanical issues and the car should last you a while.
If you go to an independent shop you may be looking at around $350 and if you go to the dealer it will be atleast $100 more.
