It will of course depend on how it is used, there is no single answer, however our original microwave bought mid 90's is still running, The main problem was its size, it simply takes up much room on the counter, it does however take the microwave pressure cooker.

The latter microwaves proved to all have the same fault, inside was made of painted mild steel, that old one had a stainless steel inertia, when I tried to google for stainless steel it lists where the outer is stainless steel not the all important inside.

I went around all the local shops, and I found Tesco had a couple on offer, only 2 months old so can't say how long it will last, but with stainless inside it stands a good chance.

The microwave pressure cookers do come in two sizes, so unless you already have one, internal clearance not too much of a problem. I find the grill in a microwave seems to cause food to get stuck onto heater, so personally I don't use it even if it is fitted.
