Thank you. I will be helping grand daughter with maintenance.

if you follow the maintenance schedule in the back of the owners manual rigorously, there is no reason the vehicle shouldn't last beyond 300,00 miles.

the key to any vehicles survival is to follow the maintenance schedules and depending on what part of the country you are in also will determine the life expectancy. i.e. snow belt or rust belt.

can I help with anything else?

Thanks for the info. That is all. I didn't know what oil the previous owner used, and therefore started with Castrol GTX 10w-30.

I wil get you the recommended oil
