You can never know for sure. The engine could go another 80-100K km if it is well maintained. A friend of mine had a Mercury Mountaineer with over 200,000 Miles (320,000 km).

As Gary said, the engine depends on maintenance. What you did not mention is what concerns me. Has the transmission fluid and filter been serviced? Ford recommends service every 90K which I think is BS. Suspect the tranny has not been service for two Ford recommended changes, and ask.

Keep looking. You're just waiting to get stranded on a lonely dark road in the middle of the night.
