Almost any car can make it to 200,000 miles and beyond, if you’re willing to throw enough money at it.
But that’s not necessarily a good idea. It’s better to buy a safe, reliable model, and then properly maintain it. Follow the maintenance schedule in your owner’s manual, take care of minor problems as they arise, and keep it clean.
These are the 10 cars, SUVs, minivans, and pickup trucks that Consumer Reports survey respondents most often reported reaching more than 200,000 miles, drawn from the survey’s responses. They’re listed in order based on the total number of responses, with the Toyota Camry the top model.
Given that we’re looking at a long span of years for this analysis, be aware that road-test scores, reliability, and other ratings vary over time. Whether buying new or used, it is wise to check the ratings available on the CR model pages for the specific model year you are considering.
