If you buy your car from a non enthusiast you're looking for trouble at 150K plus miles. If you buy from an enthusiast you likely won't need nearly as much. Enthusiast keep records and receipts. I gave the next owner of my baby a folder of receipts as well as the original window sticker.
I'm an enthusiast but never kept receipts some how

I've reaced most things that fail/go bad or wear and tear
CA and bushings
Radiator and the upper hose and the ET
Belt and the tensioner
Rear springs, Axles and bearings soon will replace the trailing arms
Plugs have been changed out 3 times already with a 70k miles of ownership

Does not have to be an enthusiast just some one that realizes that car parts wear out and needs replacement
Hell we have a Toyota and that car isn't maintenance free either like some people brag about that it only needs oil changes lol
