Reliability and durability are two huge factors when it comes to buying or even keeping an older vehicle. New vehicle prices have increased, along with interest rates, over the last year meaning that they are far less affordable than previously. For many, this means shopping for a used vehicle or holding on to their current vehicle is a more cost-effective way to get around.
It’s widely accepted that a vehicle that has travelled 200,000 miles (about 300,000 km) has reached the end of its useful life. The fact is that this is not entirely true as many modern vehicles can be driven over much greater distances.
ISeeCars has analyzed over 2 million cars to see which vehicles offer the greatest potential lifespan. The following list is extremely useful in helping consumers decide if they should keep their current vehicle. If you happen to own a Toyota, which accounts for 10 out of the top 20 vehicles, with 200,000 km on the clock, there’s a good chance it’ll go another 100,000 km with little effort.
Likewise, if you’re shopping for a used SUV, a GM full-size for example, an example that’s covered only 200,000 km will not only be less expensive but might be able to cover another 100,000 km with the right amount of maintenance.
Here are the top 20 vehicles with the longest potential lifespan:
|Rank||Vehicle||Potential Lifespan in miles|
|2||Toyota Land Cruiser||280,236|
|5||GMC Yukon XL||252,360|
|10||Toyota Highlander Hybrid||244,994|
|20||Toyota Camry Hybrid||230,547|
