12 Cars Proven to Get to 200,000 Miles and Beyond
CR's exclusive surveys show these sedans, SUVs, minivans, and pickup trucks are in it for the long haul
Almost any car can make it to 200,000 miles and beyond if you spend enough money on it. But that’s not necessarily a good idea. It’s better to buy a safe and reliable model, and properly maintain it. Make sure you follow the maintenance schedule in your owner’s manual, and take care of minor problems as they arise.
These are the top 12 most problem-free cars, minivans, pickup trucks, and SUVs that have proved to go 200,000 miles or more, according to surveys of Consumer Reports members. Many other models in our Annual Auto Surveys reached that milestone, but they did not have as high a percentage of trouble-free vehicles.
There is a clear theme on this list: Honda and Toyota models have fewer problems and go the distance more often than vehicles from other brands.
