I respectfully disagree and request proof of that bold statement. There are tons of older CRV, Rav4s, Subarus, etc with smaller engines that produce way less hp than newer models that have been very reliable and have high kms. All modern cars can have 300,000+ km put on them, just a question of when does body rust out, etc.vik56in wrote: ↑Jul 31st, 2018 8:21 amThe reason your dad was able to get to 478,000 on his Sienna was because the vehicle was equipped with a powerful engine . On the flip side this powerful engine consumes more gas. If your dad's Sienna was equipped with a fuel efficient engine with lesser power , there was no way this vehicle would have reached 478,000. SUVs need powerful engines to ensure longevity . Generally SUVS equipped with an engine starting from V6 have a longer life than a 2.0L fuel efficient engine.
A huge V6 in SUV only allows you to Tow more, but if just for a family, totally disagree any smaller fuel efficient engine can't get higher kms.
