I've had two vehicles in my adult life that once they hit 100,000 miles either the transmission or rear end went completely out. Plus I had a car when I was a teen that when it hit 100,000 miles needed a new engine... that might have been from other reasons though :)

And my '97 Dodge Ram 1500 has 130,000 and the worst I've had to do is replace the steering box once because I screwed up the lower seal replacement and a warped radiator (1 hour replacement job). This truck has been bulletproof.
