The 200,000-mile mark is a benchmark of sorts for cars. If a vehicle you own makes it to 200,000 miles, or more, than you can rest easy knowing that your car has served you well. You’ve gotten your money’s worth out of the vehicle and it no longer owes you anything. Each mile tacked onto the car after the 200,000-mile point is a bonus. And not all cars make it to 200,000-miles. Most cars die long before they reach this vaunted threshold. But for a select few well-made vehicles, the 200,000–mile mark is attainable. Here are the 10 cars most likely to last more than 200K miles, according to various automotive authorities such as Consumer Reports, Popular Mechanics, Auto Trader and Forbes magazine.
