Toyota Models Most Likely to Hit 200,000 Miles
Here at Palmer’s Toyota, we’ve seen a range of trade-in vehicles with their fair share of miles on the odometer, including a pleasant handful that have topped the fabled 200,000-mile mark. A lot of American drivers have never seen such an odometer, however, because to reach that mark actually is something pretty special, even as the feat grows more common as modern vehicles grow more reliable and long-lasting.
Truth be told, there are hundreds of thousands of vehicles in circulation right now with 200,000 or more miles on the ticker, but getting them to that point can be a little tricky. Sure, following the service and maintenance schedule in your owner’s handbook is key to a long-lasting automobile, but there might be something to the idea that simply buying the right automobile could play an important role, too.
In fact, iSeeCars.com recently published a list of the automobiles most likely to reach 200,000 miles, and interestingly, four of the top ten on that list were Toyota vehicles, including the 2016 Toyota 4Runner, 2016 Toyota Sequoia, 2016 Toyota Avalon, and 2016 Toyota Tacoma.
The 4Runner offered the highest percentage of all its models to reach 200,000 miles, with 5.2 percent of all current models reaching that mark. The Sequoia sees 4.8 percent reach the mark, while 2.7 percent of all Avalon models and 2.5 percent of all Tacoma models also get there.
Here in Mobile, Toyota dealerships sure do seem like the places to go if a consumer is looking for an automobile that will last not just a long time, but a really, really long time. Hitting 200,000 miles not be quite as hallowed an accomplishment as it once was, but it’s still a big deal, especially for those people hoping to make their automobiles last as long as mechanically possible.
