Some people eye a new car every few years. Others really hate the whole process of shopping for a car. If you want to save a lot of money and avoid the car dealership for the next 7-10 years, consider these 5 cars that last longer than most.
These cars have a reputation for being durable cars and clocking well over 200,000 miles for the life of the car. Our inventory changes, but take a look to see which of these long-lasting used cars is in stock for your next car purchase.
1. Honda Accord
The Honda Accord has long had a reputation for being one of the most reliable and longest-lasting sedans on the market. Not too long ago, one man made some headlines by driving his 1990 Accord for a million miles!
Not everyone will get that many miles, of course. But the Honda Accord came out on top in a 2014 study of cars that have over 200,000 miles on them. The study looked at how many miles cars that were for sale had on them, and 1.6% of Accords had over 200,000 miles.
That’s not a large percentage, but having more than 200,000 miles on a car is still not all that common.
2. Subaru Legacy
Subaru owners love the reliability and durability of the brand. Much of their advertising focuses on generations of families enjoying their Suburus, and there is a lot of truth to that. It’s not uncommon for the Suburu Legacy to get over 250,000 miles when taken care of well. 300,000 miles is not out of the question.
3. Toyota Avalon
In 2020, the Toyota Avalon overtook the Honda Accord for the number one spot in the most cars being sold with over 200,000 miles. A full 2.7% of used Avalons for sale had more than 200,000 miles on the odometer.
The Honda Accord has earned its good reputation over the course of many years, and so for the Toyota Avalon to surpass it on this metric is impressive.
4. Honda Ridgeline
Pickups are a huge part of American identity. Ford and Chevy make exact products that you’re well aware of. But, if you are looking for a pick up that lasts the longest, stick with Hondas.
The Honda Ridgeline pick up topped a 2019 study for long-lasting pickups. Though it gets criticized a bit for not being a “real” truck, it has plenty of power for towing and hauling and will last forever.
5. Toyota Tundra
The Toyota Tundra may not win style awards for its cabin, and its driving mechanics are not top-notch. But it is a very solid truck that will keep doing its job well over 200,000 miles.
If you haven’t noticed at this point, Toyota, Honda, and Subaru are definitely the top carmakers to earn high praise for durability! No matter the year or model, these brands are considered top of the class for cars that last.
