I found online here: that 1-5HP motors have a MTBF of about 17 years and this saw is right there according to manufacturer. Please tell me there have been motors that last way longer than this before having to replace. Thanks!

If that were true, then I have motors running today that should have died over 50 years ago. There are Unisaws in production environments that were made in the 40’s and still have their original motors. It is very rare for one to just go belly up unless you work really, really hard to kill them.
