4R70W trans life

How long do these transmissions usually last for? I have 128,xxx on my car and I believe it is the original trans... I had a 94 bird with a 4.6 on its second trans when i parked it ( 224,xxx) I never really liked how these trans are compared to the trans in my camaro so can someone tell me what the weak spots are?

AHAH mine has 88K and the pump is going out on it. Still shifts fine just makes this weird whistle whine type of sound even when in park. I've stopped driving it until I get the new tranny. my mom's 95 Cougar has over 130K miles on her original. But its drivin hard like 4 times a year by me or my dad.
