Is it worth putting the money into a car with that many miles? What might go wrong next? It doesn't leak anything, quiet engine, and has been a wonderful car. I hate to get rid of it if there's a chance I can get another 50 or 75,000 miles out of it.

    I've got the same car, same year, approximately the same mileage.

    I have replaced (or am about to replace) the following:
    - catalytic converter (and oxygen sensors)
    - power door lock actuators (about $200 each)

    The internet indicates these problems are common at this age and mileage.

    However, this is the first time I've had to put serious money into this car since I bought it, and I'm planning on getting another 5 years out of it.
