longevity

Hi,
I have a 2000 Focus wagon with 102K miles. Aside from standard wear and 'normal' maintenance I have had no issues. I drive 50% local and 50% highway. Is there any data as to how many more miles I can expect toget withour dsignificant (costly) issues?
Thank you!

these Zetecs have proven themselves time and time again, not to mention the focus itself... i am creeping up on 125000 miles with no major issues aside from regular maintenance (shocks, struts, endlinks, timing belt.. that sort of thing).. and i see no end in sight for this car. i'm pretty sure i'll keep it until i graduate, which should be in about 3 years @ ~ 1500 miles a month... that should put me up at around 180000.. ohh, and i all out bash on my focus. this car is driven " gently" about 20% of the time in a place that is motly bumpy, twisty roads..... there are quite a few high mileage foci on this site

I'm still young with 83,000 miles, but there was just a thread where someone hit 200K with theirs.
