10 cars that will almost certainly last 200,000 miles


By Clark Howard

Americans are keeping cars the longest we ever have since the automobile was invented. The average age of a car on the road today is around 11.5 to 12 years, depending on whose numbers you believe. That is a major change from historical norms.

Ride it until the wheels fall off!

If you want to keep your car on the road a long time, Consumer Reports released this list of the 10 cars that most often last their owners for 200,000 miles or more.

Two brands account for every single vehicle on this list. They are all Hondas or Toyotas!

Toyota Prius

Toyota Camry (4 cylinder)

Honda Odyssey minivan

Honda Pilot

Toyota Corolla

Honda Accord (4 cylinder)

Honda CR-V

Toyota Sienna

Toyota Highlander

Honda Civic sedan

When Consumer Reports does its automobile surveys, it look at wide swaths of wheels on the road. There are 1.1 million cars in the most recent auto survey! So you’re getting exhaustive data from their surveys. What they do is the widest survey of automobile ownership done just about anywhere in the world ever.

So these vehicles are the absolute champs of vehicles that stay on the road. Having said that, the overall reliability of all cars is beyond extraordinary these days. It’s just that if you want the best of the best, you probably want to stick with these vehicles.
