Even if you do take proper care of your car there are still are a myriad of problems that can occur that will require engine removal and replacement. One such situation is if you overheat your engine and distort the cylinder walls. The amount of space between your pistons and cylinder walls is extremely small. If the space is widened, the pistons will no longer be able to adequately provide power to your engine.
