I'm selling my 2000 Lincoln LS 5spd Manual for $3k. I'm in the DC Area and she has 157800 miles on her. I just replaced the clutch and steering knuckles. New tires & alignment. I'm on here almost 24/7 so let me know if you're interested!
Not true in the south, where road salting is not done.
That said, there certainly are things that fail more based on time than mileage, and low mileage over a long time can be worse on some of the parts than if it were driven more.
There's also the question of how it was driven. If it was driven one mile a trip, twice a day, then the engine may be in terrible shape - as an example.
