Reliability has always been one of the main factors when it came to buying a car. Even though the modern consumer mindset dictates changing what you drive every two or three years, there are still a number of people who look at their cars as investments that need to last way more than that. Finding a car that will keep going after it hits the 250,000 miles marker is not too common, but it’s definitely not that hard either. There are still a number of models across different market categories, that still deliver this kind of longevity to their owners. Here are 30 new and classic cars that will definitely last more than 250,000 miles.
50. Subaru Forester ￼
Ever since Subaru came out with the first Forester model, this car became a hit. Not only does it come with a great palette of engines, it also sports what is considered to be the best 4WD system available today. While the turbocharged variants are great, the naturally aspirated engines are known to reach beyond 250,000 miles with regular maintenance.
49. VW Passat ￼
Europe’s favourite station wagon earned its popularity both through its functionality, and reliability. This applies to most generations of VW Passat, including the latest one. Their diesel engines are known to outlast everything else on the car, while the more recent 1.8 Turbo engine has proven to be almost as durable.
48. Lexus RX350/450h ￼
RX350/450h is another Lexus that will go the extra mile. Both the gas and hybrid variants of this car have earned a reputation for being reliable. As a matter of fact, it is considered to be among the most reliable cars in its class, which definitely expanded its customer base.
47. Honda CR-V
This compact crossover from Honda was always packed with useful features and came with reliable engines. One of those that quickly comes to mind is their 2.4-liter four-cylinder found in older models of this car. There is nothing flashy about a Honda CR-V, especially considering the exterior design many find repulsive. However, no one can dispute the fact that these cars simply keep on driving well into six-figure on the clock.
