My car has 65000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
With any car, the life expectancy of it depends largely on the maintenance schedule the owner has maintained, the driving conditions it is subjected to, the driving habits of the owner and many other factors. There are inherent maintenance issues with turbo charged engines that just require a bit more attention to things, but when properly taken care of they are very reliable engines nowadays. Unfortunately, there is no way to know ahead of time when purchasing any vehicle what kinds of potential issues you may run into. If you are serious about buying this car, I would suggest having an expert come to your location to perform a thorough pre-purchase inspection prior to making your purchase so that you can have a clear picture of the vehicle's current condition.
