Hoping for 400k

ReviewI have two Toyota Camrys. We liked the 1990 so much, we bought a 1991. Essentially, their twins... except one is a manual shift, one an automatic. My wife wishes it would die, so she could get a new one.
The 90 has 251,900 miles and still gets between 29-34 mph. Still use it on my 180-mile commute.
No real mechanical problems, other than regular maintenance. Timing belts, water pump, cv boots, tires, etc.
The major key to it's longevity is regular oil and filter changes -- every 3k -- plus a good oil additive, Hilton Hyperlube or Lucas or Slick50.
I'm hopeful it will make to 400k. Would love to know what % of Camrys make it over 300 or 400k
Best FeaturesDependability, affordability, mileage, comfort.
Worst FeaturesTiming chain instead of a timing belt would have been a huge improvement, like Nissan uses. Timing belt replacements are quite expensive, now about $600+. CV boots are annoying, but how do you get around that?
