What cars have been known to last the longest?

I only need a car for my commute, so I want to purchase a car that's going to last me for the next decade or so. What are some car models that are known to last the longest?

With advancements in technology, the lifespan of a car has gotten longer. While few cars last longer than the average age of 12 years, these models have been known to be among the more reliable options:
  • Honda Ridgeline
  • Toyota Land Cruiser
  • Ford Expedition
  • Toyota Corolla
  • Honda Civic
  • Toyota Corolla
Keep in mind that this lifespan doesn’t just happen—you’ll have to keep a basic car maintenance schedule, and you may want to add an extended warranty once the car reaches a certain number of miles.
For whatever vehicle you purchase, you’ll need good car insurance. A smart way to keep costs low is by comparing premium prices by shopping with Jerry. After a quick sign-up, Jerry will present you rates from up to 50 top providers in under a minute. The best part? Jerry saves most users $879 per year on average.
