10 Cars Proven to Get to 200,000 Miles and Beyond

CR's exclusive survey shows these sedans, SUVs, minivans, and pickup trucks are in it for the long haul

Proven Get to 200,000 Miles - Toyota Camry

These are the top 10 problem-free models that have proved to go 200,000 miles or more, according to Consumer Reports members. Many other models in our Annual Reliability Survey reached that milestone, although they did not have as high percentage of trouble-free vehicles.

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 then properly maintain it. Make sure you follow the maintenance schedule in your owner’s manual, and take care of minor problems as they arise.

Below are the 10 cars, minivans, pickup trucks, and SUVs that Consumer Reports' survey respondents reported have reached more than 200,000 miles. 

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.
