My Subaru Impreza was going strong with 261,000 miles on it until a drunk driver slammed into it in front of my house. 
Yes, I got my oil changed religiously and did the other maintenance items.  I have to admit, alot had to do with just how well the car was built.  I didn't need an alternator till 155,000 miles.  Never needed a water pump or any other pump for that matter!

Here we go again..     Puttin all these Rice Burners in the most reliable segment..   Listen   almost any car will go 200 or 300 ,000 miles with regular required maintenance.      no thanks to your little biased study   ..   Give me the american brands every time..      BE AMERICAN    and wise up    ..    BUY AMERICAN..      Like we used to in the good old days..    When good jobs were plentiful..    We have already lost Pontiac,.Oldsmobile, Plymouth, Mercury..    among a few other American nameplates..        Time to wise up America.....

100k is no problem mechanically. Unfortunately I live in NY where the genius's who are in charge of clearing the road of snow & ice, can't figure out how to do it without using a compound that eats up your car, the road, and any metal used in building said road. I've lived here 40 yrs and NEVER had a car that wasn't rusted out WAY before it wouldn't be roadworthy.
It really seems ridiculous and also tears up the infrastructure
I am amazed this continues as we speak
Ya, I'm waaaaay bitter..

I have a 2001 Toyota Tundra.  It is 450 miles from hitting the 300,000 mark. All systems are running perfect. Engine has not lost any power and mpg is same as when new.  Not a reason in the world to think it will not go well beyond 300K.  One trans repair around 180K.  Thats it!!!  All other work has been normal maintenance items.

I have an '04 Toyota Matrix with 324K on it. The only non-routine issue I have had is the radio - a Delco - finally wised up when the second radion died and installed a Pioneed
