    Clutch is getting close to "fully extended" and I expect it to slip a bit.

    What's the mileage record on these engines (that notoriously eat oil)?

    I'm at 160,000 now and expect to either drop a few thousand $ into it or rid
    myself of it and go for another economical small car from a different

    The life of a car depends a lot on how you treat it and maintain it.
    One person may get 400K and another 150K. If it is running wheel now
    and has been well maintained and rust is not eating the chassis. It
    may run a long time still. Keep up on oil change in engine and
    transaxle and change engine oil more as it gets older and it gets
    dirty sooner as it will extend service life of it.
