Typically 200,000 to 300,000 miles. I keep mine 180,000 miles and sell
them privately for a very good price and they are in excellent shape.

I have a 1997 V70 2.5 20valve. It's got 285,000 km (about 175,000miles.)
Still going strong mechanically. At 250,000 km had a compression test done.
170psi all five cylinders - should be right for a long time yet.
