I've found that once cars get over 100K, they tend to need expensive repairs (timing bets, etc.). I prefer to get rid of them before hitting that mark. Can't always do that. My current WRX has ~ 85K on it.
I'm definitely not one of those who tries to milk every last mile out of a car before getting another. Besides, I like new technology, engineering advances, and old cars lose out there. Then there's always the boredom factor too.

I've found cars, once they get past 100K, tend to have expensive repairs (timing belts, etc.). So I'm not big on milking every last mile out of my car, especially if it's a daily driver.
Besides I like new technology and engineering; and I get bored with cars too, and want something new.

Highest mileage I've had was just 107k miles but that car was totaled.
I may keep my current cars longer as the kids approach college age and the funds will disappear.
