If you're looking for a new car and hope to be driving it for the next several DECADES, this list is for you . . .
A new study looked at the makes and models most likely to get you to 250,000 miles. And if you want your next ride to be on the road that long, your best bet's probably a TRUCK or SUV.
Eight of the top ten are trucks and SUVs, including the Toyota Sequoia at #1. The only two cars on the list are also Toyotas . . . Toyota Prius, and Toyota Avalon.
Before all you Toyota owners get too excited - and I'm one of them - your chances of hitting 250,000 miles in ANY car aren't great. Even in the top 10, only about 1% last that long.
Here are the ten cars, trucks, and SUVS most likely to last a quarter-of-a-million miles, according to the study . . .
1. Toyota Sequoia. 1% of them make it at least 297,000 miles.
2. Toyota Land Cruiser, 280,000.
3. Chevy Suburban, 266,000 miles.
4. Toyota Tundra, 256,000.
5. GMC Yukon XL, 252,000.
6. Toyota Prius. 1% of them hit 250,000 miles.
7. Chevy Tahoe, 250,000.
8. Honda Ridgeline, 249,000.
