Yea...that's just a headline they came up with. The pictures/descriptions of the cars don't give any reasons why those specific cars will run to 200k. Besides, what Xan said.

It is too old to be on their list, but 200K is nothing to a 22RE engined Toyota truck. These trucks regularly go over 500,000 miles with no serious repairs. In the last 18.5 years, I have spent less than $300 in repairs for my truck (not counting consumables). I have replaced the water pump, radiator, and starter contacts;that is it. It still smogs as clean today as when it was new.

Like mentioned by others in this thread, 200,000 miles is not that big a deal for most well maintained, modern cars any more.

I agree. Honda as a make should be #1 for Christ's sake. I used to own one and it was a champ at high miles

Wow that's amazing! I've heard that usually around 80k miles they start needing a lot of big repairs. 200k with no major repairs must be quite rare and you must have taken real good care of it.

Any car minus some Chryslers will easily go 200k or longer if you do not beat it. I expect to get 250k out of any of my normal cars or else I am disappointed. The fleet i work for has many Toyota Prii that are well beyond 200k with just oil normal maintenance and most of those Prii have the original brakes.... Its interesting a lot of people really believe cars go bad in there early 100K range but really if you go through the maintenance routine even 200k plus cars can be dead set reliable. But then again a lot of people consider changing a alternator or starter non routine maintenance...

I doubt the RL will go over 200,000 without something going badly wrong in its complicated electronics or SH-AWD. The same applies to today's modern German computers on wheels.

Ford has only recently become respectable in terms of reliability and I wouldn't have included the Mustang and Taurus since I doubt there are many Taurii of this generation and any 3.7/5.0 Mustangs that have crossed that threshold. On the other hand, the Fusion was one of the best cars that Ford of North America ever made.

Ironically, the less expensive a vehicle is, the less there is to go wrong. Any compact car on sale today aside from the Dodge Caliber should deliver 200k miles easily.

Yep. Dumb list is dumb. 2002 Chevy Tahoe in our posession, 203K miles and counting. 2000 Honda S2000, also in our posession, 187k miles and counting. When I sold my 93 Saturn SL2 3 years ago, it had 165k miles. It now has about 210k miles (sold to wifes younger cousin).

ANYTHING made today (and pretty much the early/mid 90s) will make it to 200k+ if you just take care of them!

Oh, they do. I just bought my car after all of that was repaired.

Those cars are too new to consistently hit 200k... Sure there are plenty of instances when an owner racks up that amount in 2-3years with highway miles or w/e. You can find almost ANY car that can handle that abuse. But I think those are special cases. The average owner of most of those car would be hard pressed to take them to 200k over the car's lifetime without major repairs. An MKZ? really? 5 years down the line, you'll see those cars with 130 on the clock and not much more...
