I have a 93 Corolla that I got in 2004 with 80,000 miles on it. I now have 190,000 and have also done little to it beyond oil changes and a couple of exhaust issues (i blame these cobblestone streets and potholes in dayton).
Every mechanic that's looked at it has said that the engine in that thing will outlast the body. Seems like they're right.
