Cars That Most Frequently Make It Past 200,000 Miles In America
July 19th, 2017People mark the milestone of hitting 100,000 miles in their car. But what about 200,000miles? Well, automotive research firm, iSeeCars.com, surveyed the 200 million vehicles registered in America to find out which are most likely to surpass that 200,000-mile mark.
So which cars are most likely to join the 200,000-mile club? They analyzed everything built from 1981 to 2015 to find the models that are most likely to still be driving after 200,000 miles. They shared the results with the guys over at Road & Track so here it is...
Work trucks dominate the top of the list, which isn't a huge surprise. "Manufacturers build trucks with these demands in mind and stake their reputations on how long their trucks will last. Longevity is even a major focus of their marketing campaigns," iSeeCars.com CEO Phong Ly said. "Also, owners who are dependent on their vehicle to get from one job site to the next are going to pay closer attention to their vehicles' regular maintenance or repairs because their livelihood depends on keeping their trucks in good operating condition." Makes sense.
But do you happen to notice anything missing from that list? Yup, luxury cars and non-trucks. There was only one passenger car that managed to crack the top ten, and that was the Toyota Avalon. "While the Avalon doesn't carry the best-selling title of the Accord, it does have Toyota's long-standing reputation for reliability," says Ly.
Curious to see what non-trucks made the cut? Here are the top ten cars (er, trucks) that make it to 200,000 miles:
Are you surprised at the list? Did your car or truck make it?
