Named 10 high-mileage cars that are suitable for purchaseAugust 28, 2020
A truly reliable car must be tested not only by time, but also by mileage – this is constantly confirmed by the profile ratings of TUV, ADAC, Consumer Reports and J. D. Power.
The first position is occupied by the Japanese cross Subaru Forester. According to statistics, more than 15% of Forester owners in the United States do not want to change it to another car even after 10 years of use. In addition, the Japanese model has reliable bundles of naturally aspirated engines and simple 4-speed automatic transmissions, which even in harsh conditions are enough for more than 500,000 km.
Next comes the German-assembled Ford Fusion microvan, which, as the author of the article notes, is actually reliable, even if we are talking about a car that is 20 years old. The reason is in simple atmospheric engines and manual transmissions.
In third place is the Toyota Corolla – the most massive family in the world. In the case of this model, cars of the ninth generation with an index of 120 are considered the standard of reliability. Their bodies do not rust at all, and atmospheric units with a volume of 1.4, 1.6 and 1.8 liters go several hundred thousand kilometers without problems.
The fourth line went to the legendary sports car Audi TT. And the German 1.8-liter “turbo four” should not be confused here – in the first generation of TT it was much simpler than modern counterparts, and the reliable automatic transmission Tiptronic is still considered one of the most successful automatic transmissions of German production.
The fifth position is occupied by the second generation Audi A6 sedan with a V6 engine. This model topped the German ADAC reliability rating 15 years ago, and since then, little has changed – more recent versions are consistently included in the TOPs of three and five years, and older ones are in the rating of the most unkillable cars over 10 years old.
In addition to them, the high mileage should not confuse the Mercedes-Benz SLK coupe, the Toyota Camry sedan, as well as the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V and Lexus RX crosses.
