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 most problem-free cars that have proved to go the distance, according to Consumer Reports members. Many other models in our Annual Reliability Survey have made it to 200,000 miles, although not as often as these 10 featured models. Our analysis adjusts for the popularity of cars among CR members.

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 go the distance more than vehicles from other brands.

Given that we're looking at a long span of years for this analysis, shoppers should be aware that road-test scores, reliability, and other ratings vary over time.

Whether you're buying new or used, it's smart to check the ratings on CR's model pages for the specific model year that you're considering.

The vehicles below are ranked (in descending order) by the percentage of those with zero claimed problems in the previous 12 months.
