red ford pickup Americans drive a lot. Collectively, we put an average of 13,476 miles on our cars each year, according to the Department of Transportation. Because of this, a vehicle's ability to travel long distances without major problems is a huge aspect to take into consideration when it comes time to purchase a new one.

iSeeCars.com, a website that aggregates 30 million used car listings from all around the country, recently looked for all of the vehicles housed on its website from 1981-2010 that have more than 200,000 miles on the odometer in order to see which models are really going the distance for their owners. The findings, which list the 12 models with the highest percentage of 200,000-mile travelers, are quite interesting. Only one car made the list, the Honda Accord. All the rest are either trucks or SUVs.

Head through to see the vehicles that are achieving the 200,000 mile mark at a higher percentage than others. It's important to note that while these are the vehicles that have stood the test of time up until today, we can't guarantee future results if you decide to opt for one of these from a current model year.

        AGREE, Muspod!  And you're just mistaken, Mchica!!  I own TWO Volvo station wagons, ages 18 and 28!!!  One is approaching 180K miles and the other 360K!!  As Muspod says, taking care of them is the key.  The 28-year-old can do 80 mph (legal in TX) with the best of them!  Service and repairs aren't always cheap, but they're better than car payments!  You still have to maintain newer cars--and my two have never been RECALLED.

          My beloved 1993 volvo wagon is sitting in the driveway. I put $5000 into it and then the transmission went so I bought a 2003.  Not nearly as good as the 1993.  I'm at a point where I want to sell parts from the 1993 because no one will ever pay even 1/2 of all those new parts I put into th ecar with a broken transmission.  szukidavis@aol.com/

        My 1999 Outback has 180K+ and is well maintained.  Only problem on the road  that ever happened was starting out on a 600 mile trip and having the 150K mile manifold gasket problem which I learned is a common boxer engine problem.  It set me back $1,700.  Just had the oil and power steering pumps replaced and the air conditioner recharged.  Like new again.  Shines like new with the polish I use.  I keep the cassette player cleaned with a cleaning cassette that has tiny little brushes that I wet with a VCR head cleaning liquid.  Even the Tape Programming System still works which allows me to skip around anywhere on a cassette and I have a 200+ cassettes.  Could copy them to CDs but do not want to go through the time and expense.

      Their list doesn't tell you anything except these are vehicles people seem to want to sell on their website after 200k miles. I sold my 02 Golf TDI after 320k miles, just because I was bored with it, and there is a huge following of people with these cars with 400k+ miles on them. You will never get a valid list unless they come up with a central database which shows mileage for every car in the US.

      In practice most vehicles will run 200K+ miles. Regular maintenance is the key. Oil and filter change every 5K. Tires and brakes every 50-75K, depending on type. Transmission and radiator fluid changes every two years. Timing belt and water pump every 100K. The rest as needed.

        @Michael Magri

        The question is just if it's worth putting maintenance money into an old vehicle.  At some point, when a vehicle is only worth a couple thousand dollars, it's hard to justify putting big money every year into keeping it running.  As I look through the list and see all the big SUVs, those are ones that cost far more to replace, so the continued maintenance costs may be more worth it.  (They're also more likely to rack up the miles on long, family road trips.. although we didn't see any minivans on the list.)  
        Also, the study is flawed because it only looks at used cars listed for sale, so a car is basically counted any time it trades hands.  A car that is kept by a single owner for 300k miles is never counted.

          I definitely see your point, but would rather put a couple of grand into keeping an older vehicle on the road than to have a $500/month car payment for the next six years. I don't really look at blue book value when making these decisions. To me, at least, the real value of a vehicle is the length of time you drive it AFTER its paid off. Just spent $700 this week on a new set of 17" Kelly Safari's for our '04 Saturn Vue with 205,000 on the odometer. At 210,000 will have the oil changed and transmission flushed/changed.

        Its interesting how an unexpected mechanical problem can scotch further brand purchases from a particular manufacturer. My wife and I both drove Honda Civics back in the day. On the way to an out-of-town wedding we blew a head gasket on a 1985 Civic. The trip was ruined and we were presented with a $2K repair bill. The car was six months out of warranty and all regular maintenance had been done and documented by a dealer. They took pity on us and dropped the price to $1,600. We were still upset as the car was only a few years old. This was 30 years ago and although we have considered another Honda, we have never revisited the brand.

          Honda's have come a long way since that POS. You are missing out on the best car on the road today .

          I had a similar situation with a Nissan back in the early 90's.  They rebuilt the engine three times under the extended warranty, but each time the car would go about 20,000 miles and then begin spewing oil everywhere.  Nissan refused to do anything, so I will never even think about purchasing Nissan again.  After the extended warranty expired I had to junk the car with 130,000 miles on it.  I've owned a Jeep and a Ford Explorer that got over 250,000 miles, and my son now has my old Chevy Cobalt that is at 175,000 and going strong.

      American cars are improving tremendously. I can remember when they were mostly junk.

        Nessus do you remember when Toyota trucks had a single wall bed and rusted THRU in 2 yrs ?  Too many Americans have a selective memory on the foreign crap.  Yes they've ALL improved, but the Japanese for years hid their mistakes, and our government LET them.

          Those early Toyota truck beds were produced in the USA. Because of tariffs, it was cheaper for Toyota to import only the Cab and Chassis. I have owned Toyotas since the mid 70's. Still have two in my driveway today and have never had anything but great service.

      I purchased an '06 Accord about a year ago after my '05 Accord was totated in an accident. My '05 had a little over a 100,000 and the  '06 had 180,000 at purchased. It's now a little over 190,000 and drives like brand new. I want a new car but this thing runs brand new. It's all about regular oil changes and routine maintenance.

          Why is the story a lie?  I still drive my 94 accord with 145k miles on it.  It rattles, but mechanically, its sound.

      In discussing cars with my mechanic of 18 years, he said, "If everyone drove Hondas, & Toyotas, I'd be out of business."

        That what my mechanic says about my 1998 Honda Accord (and Toyota's), 198,000. miles and the gas milage in the city is 26 or 27 miles per gallon. 31 on Hwy. I love it.

        Yep, I have a friend that had a CR-V, and she never did routine maintenance on the thing. She would change the oil maybe once every 10,000 miles, and sometimes get the tired rotated... and the thing was basically like the Energizer bunny. I just kept going and going and going....

          she "never" did routine maintenance on it except for oil changes every 10,000 miles which just happens to be the interval for some CRVs. Good example!

          Funny you should mention the CR-V, because it's the one vehicle I had the worst experience with in terms of maintenance. The engines in those for the first 2 generations had valve issues. I bought a high miles 1999 CR-V used a few years ago and it was great...for a while. Then it started knocking bad, not starting, and various other issues. Eventually I dumped over $2000 into it and it still wouldn't stay running. It ended up as a non-functioning door stop 16 months after I bought it, and so I sold it off.

          I loved the thing and how it drove. And it appeared to be a peach when I bought it. But it fell apart quickly just shy of 200k miles.

          No he didn't. Very Common saying by mechanic's about Honda and Toyota. I KNOW for they tell me the same. I do know one thing, NEVER go to a honda dealership to fix you car, they charge an arm and leg and want to change other things. Corruption going on, except the ONLY honda dealership that I've known in my 60 years of life is in Fort Worth, TX. Every Make of care goes there for it's run by a Woman who DEMANDS Honesty by her employee's. They get fired it they are NOT honest.

        if mechanics were more honest they would survive. old lady come in "on ladies day" leaves after spending 350-500 dollars for oil change specials. other than the people who sell cars, mechanics are the biggest liars and rip offs in american labor market. never, ever allow a female to go for a repair.

          There are honest mechanics out there and I got news for you, there are women out there who understand basic mechanics and car maintenance. I always laugh when the mechanic starts talking to my husband who is clueless about cars... and he always says, you need to talk to my wife. My father taught me plenty about cars. Maybe instead of being so insulting, you could use that energy to teach the "females" in your life the basics.

          Same thing for my 78 Honda Accord. Went to 215,000 miles until I had to hold the front fender on by a hanger due to rust from Buffalo winters.  Great car. My current car is a 2003 Pontiac Vibe (really a Toyota Matrix) with 206,000 and going strong.

      My 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee has 201,000 miles on it. I wouldn't hesitate to drive it anywhere.  Still gets 19 miles per gallon just as it did when I bought it new.
