All I can say is that I had a 1999 Chevy Tahoe thy was all original except a body lft and 33" mud tires. I rode it hard every weekend on trails and pipelines ad nothing ever broke or gave up. Finally at 234k the transfer case chain stretched and I took it out and 4wd was gone. Then at 240k got tranny rebuilt. No other problems. General maintenance only. Buddy had a 2002 Tahoe that blew 2 trannies and one engine. Had 105k miles.
It all comes down to luck and maintenance. 200kmiles is a lot for a stang, but mod motors are actually durable at stock form, they only become short-lived after being modded.
If you got it for a good price then go for it!!
