Which cars will most likely last for 200,000 miles?

If you want a vehicle that can make it to 200,000 miles, what should you buy? Probably not a sedan. A new study finds that large SUVs are the likeliest to keep going to that mileage marker and beyond.

Research from iSeeCars.com found that the Ford Expedition and Toyota Sequoia are four times as likely and the Chevrolet Suburban 3.5 times as likely as the average vehicle to be still on the road at 200,000 miles. The study looked at the 13 million used cars sold last year ranging from 1981 models to 2017.

Overall, 1.3 percent of average vehicles made it to 200,000, while the percentage for the Ford Expedition was 5.7, with the Toyota Sequoia at 5.6 and the Chevrolet Suburban at 4.8.

“Supersized SUVs are often workhorses for families,” said Phong Ly, CEO of iSeeCars.com. “They typically transport eight people and usually have significant towing capacity for families who boat or camp.”

My GMC Denali had 310,000 when I traded it. They run forever if you take care of them.

I have GM vans and trucks that I use for business and its nothing to hit 600k miles before any engine trouble and most transmissions last 300-350K. We even have one that is still going that has 900k with original engine and the transmission went 798K.These are the same engines and transmissions in the Suburbans, Tahoes and Yukons.

Any vehicle will last much longer with regular oil changes and maintenance. You would be surprised how many people never give that a thought, especially oil changes!

My 2005 Honda Pilot had over 200,000 on it when I traded it in. Still looked and ran great.

Change your oil, keep the cooling system flushed at regular intervals and change timing belts on smaller motors and almost all of them will tip the 200k mark. Some vehicles thats just getting broken in now. Especially the cars from the land of the rising sun.
