Actually, this video is titled, “These Are the Top 20 Most RELIABLE Cars & Trucks That Never Break Down!” I’m just focusing on the trucks in this post.
Steady yourselves, we’re about to drop on you a new list that reiterates a certain reality: Toyota and Honda build reliable vehicles. While many of you are aware of the Camry’s reputation, not many are aware of the Honda Ridgeline. Yep, it’s on this list. Many of the trucks you’ll see on this list are fairly predictable, but the odd part is: what’s missing?
ISeeCars.com generated this post: “Longest-Lasting Cars, SUVs, and Trucks to Reach 200,000 Miles and Beyond.” We used this list as a starting point and created the TFL Studios video below.
Among the trucks, we rounded some of the totals off, just to make it easier to list.
- Ford F-150 – Average Mileage: 232,000 miles.
- Nissan Titan – Average Mileage: 233,000 miles.
- Toyota Tacoma – 235,000 miles
- GMC Yukon – 238,000 miles
- Toyota 4Runner – 244,000
- Ford Expedition – 244,680
- Honda Ridgeline – 248,000
- Chevrolet Tahoe – 250,000
- GMC Yukon XL – 252,000
- Toyota Tundra – 256,000
- Chevrolet Suburban – 265,000
- Toyota Land Cruiser – 280,000
- Toyota Sequoia – 296,000
If you look at the full list, you’ll see Toyota absolutely dominates. Oddly, we were expecting to see other vehicles that are known for reliability and long-lived ownership. Cars like the Accord, Corolla and RAV4 didn’t make the list – but neither did the Chevy Silverado or GMC Sierra. That kind of floored us, as we know folks who swear they are as reliable as Fords. Not only that, we found it odd that – despite the strong showing of GM SUVs – they failed to make it.
I mean, a Chevrolet Suburban is based on a Silverado platform – right?
My theory is that these high scoring SUVs are simply better treated by their owners than pickup trucks, which are abused more often. I could be wrong, but that’s what I think.
