I have a 2003 Element, all wheel drive, with 200,000 miles. I have taken care of it and haven’t had any major problems. I would like to take camping trips to the national parks, however, I would like to minimize problems on the road. Can I perform preventative maintenance by replacing specific running gear? Running gear that are known to fail or have problems.

Has anything been replaced already? The suspension is notorious for needing a refresh after 100K or so, but that "most likely" wouldn't result in a breakdown on the road. If she's running well I would probably just say full fluid flush and keep on rolling. The fans are known to go out after awhile, and water pumps and O2 sensors always seems like a crap shoot, but I'm strongly of the opinion, if it isn't broke, don't fix it. I'm sure some of the other members here have more knowledge than I for maintaining longevity. I might suggest moving this into the bikin', campin', etc or the engine forum for better response rates.
