When buying a used vehicle, many people tend to focus on what features the vehicle comes with, how old it is, what kind of gas mileage it gets, and what it looks like, but something that can be easily overlooked is the general lifespan of the vehicle. Some cars die around 150,000 miles, some 200,000 miles, and some 300,000 miles. If you want to get the most bang for your buck, be sure that you are paying attention to more than how old the vehicle is; pay attention to how many miles the car has and how many miles you can expect to get out of the car. Below we have listed a few long-lasting cars that are currently available on our lot. If you are interested, be sure to ask about them quickly, because our cars go fast!
The Kia Forte is a fantastic vehicle that tends to score incredibly well on customer reviews and safety records, not to mention its great gas efficiency – meaning more money saved. So we ensure to have a few around on our lots. These vehicles typically last for 200,000+ miles with proper maintenance and care. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, the average American motorist drives approximately 13,474 miles each year.
2. Ford Expedition
Expeditions have been known for their long life-expectancy since the late 90’s. This study ranks the Expedition as the fifth most likely car to go over 200,000 miles. Many owners of the Ford Expedition have reported going 200,000 to 250,000 miles. These are a bit harder to come by so if you see one on our site, be sure to grab it quickly!
Chevrolet Impalas have been known to make it to the 300,000-mile mark with proper care and maintenance, making them the longest lasting car on this list. Of course, like all of the cars on this list, the year and model of the car factor into the life-expectancy. Currently, we have a variety of Impalas available, ranging from roughly 70,000 to 115,000 miles. You could expect one of these vehicles to last anywhere from 6 to 17 years.
Next up, we have a heavy duty truck: the Ford F-150. Coming in at just over 100,000 miles, the F-150 on our lot still has a ton of life left in it. The F-150 can get up to 200,000 miles with light repairs and maintenance, giving it another 7.4 years of life (approximately). In addition to this fantastic life-expectancy, the F-150 has a consumer rating of 4.6 stars out of 5 on Kelly Blue Book, so you know it is a reliable vehicle.
