Can the engine of Renault Lodgy last upto 5 or 6 lakh kilometers?

In my opinion running upto 5-6 lakh kilometers is an over-expectation from any car. Generally the engines of esteemed brands like Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai, Honda etc. can easily run upto 2 – 2.5 lakh kms, if the car has not suffered any accidents or major falls. This period can even be extended to 50k – 1 lakh kms, if the car is well maintained with strict plan of servicing. But in India, the road conditions are not good enough for cars to run their designed lifespan even with good care and part replacement strategy. Moreover bad driving habits also add to engine damage. Hence, it is no surprise if cars do not last as long as they should. And most of the people drive some 10,000 – 15,000 kms in a year, so at that rate it would take 35-50 years to reach the figure of 5 lakh kms, which is quite impossible.
