Since all the parts you've mentioned are all wear and tear parts and there is no major issues with the car - I don't see why it can't run reliably for a few more years.
Even mine is the same color

I got it inspected by Bumper today. They quoted 30k for full car painting excluding roof. This includes major rusting on bonnet and minor on boot door and 1 quarter panel. They have their own booth. Summing up via their per panel costing also leads to a similar figure in my case.

Will check with some other painters as well in Delhi.

There are lot of Xylo cabs that do Pune Mumbai runs daily, as the XYLO has the same engine although longitudinally mounted we can consider it should give the same life. Most of these guys say that for the engines that have never overheated, and have strictly followed the 20k km oil change interval, smoking and consuming oil starts only when they are nearing the 5 lakh mark.
As these people usually have a 3 year loan, they sell of at the 3 year 4 lakh km mark and the second owner gets at least a year and lakh km trouble free.

Engine holds good....but repeated failure on other areas puts a big question mark on reliability of the vehicle. One recent incident last week is flash of Airbag censor within a km of start for a long drive. Luckily I had an alternative car else the entire plan would have got canceled.
