80,000 miles seems OK for worn out tie rods. i changed them more often than that on my former cars but road conditions here, potholes, salt in winter, help a lot ruining everything. Maybe PA is more friendly.
Wife's SX4, similar to yours, has only 30,000km after 5 years (bought as a demo at 10,000km) ...and no problem so far.
