Default How many miles an ACURA RL good for...?

I am thinking about trading my Acura rl in for another car,but I like the fact that it is paid off. It has 115,000 miles on it. Does anyone know how many miles you can drive these cars without having to replace everything. I would like a reliable car for the next couple of years. What things will I be expecting to replace in the next few miles?

It's good for alot of miles, but their transmissions SUCK big time. I rode in my friend's RL, and it was the harshest worst shifting gearbox I had ever experienced in my life. it shifted like crap in every gear.

On my opinion, if your car is paid off ride it to the ground. So you can get the most of it. A trade in is always bad. If I get 15 years out of one car and I drive it to the car crusher, I can say happy that I got my money worth on it. Just drive it, perform maintenance like it says on the book, do not abuse it and will last you perhaps another 100,000 I have GMs over 100,000 easily. Most cars these days can last you that long even more, with proper care.
