After an analysis of more than 14.9 million pre-owned vehicles sold last year, the results are in — Toyota comes in way ahead of the pack in terms of long-term vehicle reliability.
The organization that ran the analysis, iSeeCars, based their study on how often different models would make it to 200,000 miles. They restricted their data to only include models that are still in production today and measured the results as the percent of each nameplate that hit that mileage benchmark. About 2.3% of used Toyotas cleared that line, which is almost twice as many as the average for all brands in the comparison.
In fact, out of the top ten longest-lasting vehicles, six are Toyota models: the Land Cruiser, Sequoia, 4Runner, Tundra, Avalon, and Prius. The brand’s SUVs and trucks stand out in particular, with the Tundra earning the first spot in the truck list. As for SUVs, the Land Cruiser earned the top spot overall with a whopping 18% of individual Land Cruisers reaching 200,000 miles. This is especially impressive when you note that the average for all vehicles measured was only 1.2%.
This may not be entirely surprising — Toyota vehicle reliability has long had a reputation for being exceptional — but the proof is in the pudding. Make sure to check out the Land Cruiser, Sequoia, 4Runner, and other long-lasting Toyota vehicles at Courvelle Toyota in Opelousas, Louisiana!
