I think the units that come with the cars or are sold by the dealers will get about 70,000 to 90,000 miles. That is why I bought a system from Timevalve ( which has a lifetime warranty. I recently took the car back to the Timevalve shop, which happens to be relatively close in Connecticut, and they repaired some leaks free of charge, without any questions or paperwork. Great company, great product, and I am in no way affiliated with them - just a satisfied customer. Good luck, Jim
