What Cars Last the Longest?
One of the most common questions we get at Tiny’s Auto is what car should someone buy if they are looking for one that lasts the longest. After all, if you’re investing in a new or used vehicle, you want to make sure you get a good investment. And one of the best measures of a vehicle’s value is just how often it will need repair work done.
Now, we can’t predict the future, but we can get an idea based on past successes. We’ve got a quick list of some popular cars that last much longer than their competition.
Some Popular Long-Lasting Cars
We only have so much space here, so let’s get right to it, shall we?
- Chevy Silverado 1500 - One of the most famous pickup trucks, drivers buy Silverados that are made to last from year to year and job to job.
- Ford F-150 - Like the Silverado, the F-150 is a beast of a truck, built to take whatever you have to throw at it be ready for more. Of course it’s going to last you a long time.
- Dodge Durango - This full-size SUV not only makes a great work vehicle but an ideal family vehicle as well. With plenty of space to haul people or cargo and a dependable Dodge powertrain under the hood, it’s hard to go wrong with a Durango.
- Honda Accord - Quite possibly the world’s most popular midsize sedan, the Accord is built for efficiency and dependability. Modern models even come equipped with state-of-the-art standard features packages.
- Toyota 4Runner - Another SUV, this one is part of Toyota’s lineup, hailing it as a long-lasting and dependable vehicle.
While each of these five deserve special attention, we want to let you know a little secret: the high-end pickup trucks are the most dependable and longest lasting around. The Silverado HD and Ford Super Duty trucks make up a significant portion of vehicles currently on the road with over 200,000 miles.
How to Get the Longest Lasting Car
By and large, the majority of vehicles that last the longest are SUVs and work trucks, as they are built to take a beating, but if you want something a bit smaller, the Accord or a comparable model from an automaker you trust works just as well.
