What are the longest-lasting cars?
"I’m not interested in hopping from car to car every few years. I want to settle on one that will last for a long time.
“With modern advancements in drive-train technology, longevity is far less of an issue than it used to be. If properly maintained, just about any modern vehicle will last well over 100,000 miles. In fact, the average lifespan of the modern car has recently grown from eight years, or 150,000 miles, to 12 years, or 200,000 miles.
When you take into consideration the fact that cars that are not properly maintained are included in that average—which brings down the average lifespan—it can be assumed that nearly any vehicle on the road today will probably last for ages if taken care of. In conclusion, if you want a long-lasting vehicle, pick the modern car that speaks to you and take good care of it. “
