Image: Toyota.comBack in the day many people traded in their old cars for new ones every three years or so. But present trends indicate that people are holding on to their cars for a much longer period of time.

This behavior most certainly has to do with the economy as well as cars improving in quality, for the most part. If you are on the lookout for reliable cars that will last you well into the 200,000 mile range, here are some of the best ones you can choose from.
Toyota Prius

This car evokes extreme emotions from people. Detractors of the vehicle deride its owners as “status seekers” or “tree huggers.” And in some car circles this car is mocked as the Toyota “Pious.” But those who love this car say it not only saves on fuel, and is good for the environment; it is a very reliable car too.

No matter where you are on the spectrum of your feelings towards the Prius, one thing is undeniable; it is a rock solid car that is highly reliable and should be easy to drive through the 200K mile mark.

Honda Odyssey

For families, soccer moms and dads, or for anyone who needs extra cargo space and people room, you can place Honda’s Odyssey at the top of your list. The interior is spacious and can seat up to eight people, lots of storage space, child seat accommodating, and a very comfy ride. This minivan should get you past the 200K mark with regular maintenance.

Honda Civic

This perennial favorite is a reliability champ and will give its owners many miles of carefree driving. It may not be the most exciting car in the world, but its strength lies in mechanical dependability. If you’re looking for a car you can depend on day in and day out, the Honda Civic may be the car you’re looking for.

Toyota Highlander

If your family or sports team wants to ride in more style, the Toyota Highlander is a midsized SUV that comes with high praise from Consumer Reports and ranks as one of its top choices for best SUVs to own. It drives great, offers a comfortable ride, and is spacious inside. Reaching 200K should be no problem at all.

Do You See a Pattern Here?

In Consumer Reports listing of the best cars for the long haul, Toyota and Honda held all the spots in its top 11 list. Not one American car made this list. While American car manufacturers have made great strides in producing more reliable cars, they are still way behind the pack when compared to Japanese products.

The bottom line is this: If you want dependability for the long run, stick with Honda and Toyota.

I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, but I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is pretty value sufficient for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the internet will likely be a lot more useful than ever before.
