Hello and welcome

Depends upon how the miles were driven and how much servicing has been done

Taxi's can do over millions of miles and still seem okay. A car with low miles and well looked after can be a right money pit and unreliable......I know had a few of them, still own one :(

With that mileage resale will be low, but in terms of longevity there's plenty left most likely.

No of miles depends upon proper servicing engine, tyres and how you drive and take care of them.
Watch the weight. ...
Reduce drag.
Stick to the motor oil recommended by your vehicle manufacturer
