Searching for the most dependable vehicles.
As you find yourself on the hunt for a new car, you may be wondering how long you should expect a new car to last. A recent study was done by USA Today that revealed the top ten cars with a chance to make it past 200,000 miles. To put these upcoming percentages into perspective, it’s worth noting that the average car only has a 1.2% chance to even make it to 200,000 miles.
Model and percentage of vehicles with more than 200,000 miles:
- Toyota Sequoia 6.6%
- Ford Expedition 5.4%
- Chevrolet Suburban 5.2%
- Toyota 4Runner 4.2%
- GMC Yukon XL 3.9%
- Chevrolet Tahoe 3.8%
- GMC Yukon 2.8%
- Toyota Tacoma 2.6%
- Toyota Avalon 2.4%
- Honda Odyssey 2.4%
The study also revealed that vehicles used for business rather than families have an edge in hitting the 200,000 mile mark.
Every car has a different story.
Although stats are impressive and fun to look at, it’s important to remember that every car is unique. Finding a vehicle with a good history, that has been treated well, and comes from a reputable dealer should be your first priority. Do you research and find out which models and brands you want to shop for, and then find an honest car dealership to work with. You can read reviews on Facebook, Google,and Cars.com.
