The test results are pretty much expected. Have a 2001 Rav4 going for 230km all City driving and seen plenty of 1st gen rav4s still roaming around.

The Lexus LS, GX 470 are two more fine examples. 1999-2005 LS430's were great cars and an excellent buy these days.

Best cars for making it to 200,000 miles

10 models most likely to run for the long haul

[QUOTE] Almost any car can make it to 200,000 miles if you’re willing to throw enough money at it. But that doesn’t mean that keeping it is a good idea. A less expensive and more hassle-free way to go is to simply buy a safe and reliable model in the first place, and properly maintain it for the long haul. Just follow the maintenance schedule in your owner’s manual, take care of minor problems as they arise, keep it clean, and you should be good to go.[/QUOTE]

From the video>>>Consumer Reports survey of one million readers (fairly large sample for adjustment of any omissions/errors/bias) came to these results.

Accord is on the list, and I've had a 1992 Accord the last 8 years, 335,000 km, I can confirm it has been surprisingly reliable. It doesn't even leak oil!

If you look around, you might notice there are still a lot of early 1990s Accords on the road.

Like someone said, almost any car can get to 200,000 miles if you throw enough money at it. Usually "reliable" in the sense most people refer to it means "I don't need to spend much money on this car to keep it running". That's why you won't find any car with expensive parts or servicing on that list; because cost a big factor in how they determine reliability.
