Top Sedans to Pass 200,000 Miles

We’ve yet to meet a single person who doesn’t want to purchase a vehicle that can go the distance. While some car owners will always opt for a leasing program to simply swap out vehicles every 36 months or so, there is always a strong market for cars that can serve as an everyday work horse. The folks over at iSeeCars.com analyzed over 30 million vehicles that are still on the road and put together and all-inclusive listing of the vehicles most likely to take you over that 200,000 mile mark. We’ve chosen to highlight the hard working and durable sedans on their list in today’s post:

Top 10 Longest Lasting Cars (excluding SUVs and Trucks)

10

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Japanese-made sedans occupy nearly the entire top ten list – with the exception of the Ford Taurus in the number seven spot. iSeeCar’s complete list was based on all models manufactured between 1981 and 2010 that were still on the road with over 200,000 miles. The interesting thing to note about all of iSeeCars’ lists is the absence of any true luxury vehicles. While classic cars tend to have a fair mix of both domestic and import manufacturers, it seems that the luxury brand models sold in the U.S. don’t stand the test of time as well as Japanese and American-made manufacturers.
