These are the Longest-Lasting Vehicles

On average, only 1.2% of vehicles surpass 200,000 miles

  • The study is based on the percentage of vehicles from a given model that reaches 200,000 miles or more.

  • Six out of the Top 10 models are Toyotas.

  • GM full-size trucks make up three of the remaining four spots.

This study is interesting and also supports what many car experts have been saying for decades. These days, buying a new or pre-owned vehicle can be an extremely expensive venture given the current state of affairs. This longest-lasting vehicles list demonstrates the top 10 models that provide the most longevity and durability.

Reliability is a term that encompasses ownership and related maintenance costs, and peace of mind. For roughly three decades, Toyota typically comes out on top where it really matters and that’s not initial impressions, value, or design, but reliability. And this study, completed by iSeeCars supports this.

By analyzing more than 14.9 million cars, they’ve determined, in no uncertain terms, that if you own a Toyota, there’s a very strong chance that your vehicle will make it to 200,000 miles (322,000 km). Also notable is that only two cars made the top 10 and they are Toyotas.

2005 Chevrolet Suburban

GM isn’t too far behind with three of its full-size trucks making the list while one Ford product vehicle cracked the top 10.

For the sake of general interest, here are the top 15. Little changes overall as two Toyotas join in, as does one GM, and two Hondas also make the cut.
