Not surprisingly, reliability is high on the list of consumer’s reasons for buying a certain type of car.

That’s should be no surprise, because even if a car is near-perfect to drive, it won’t make a difference if it’s in the shop all the time. Consumer Reports recently compiled a list of the 10 car models that it believes are the most likely to reach 200,000 miles without needing major repairs. The vehicles are all cars that have reached more than 200,000 miles in recent years, according to CR reader survey data, and are ranked in descending order based on the percentage of the vehicles with zero recorded problems in the past 12 months.

I like how the Ford is number one on the list dominated by Honda and Toyota.

I am surprised I did not see a Subaru in the list...

without major repair unless you have a CRV with the 1.5L turbo with oil dilution problem...

The F-150 is most often bought as a work/business truck and gets a lot of use so it tends to accumulate miles fast. 200,000 could be less than 5 years for a lot of owners and that's easy service. Also, that just says it will likely reach 200,000 miles. It doesn't say what repairs and replacements will have been done in that time.

Ive looked at these lists before and Ford is never near it. Thats obviously being paid for. Was just looking at those various lists a few weeks ago. F150 never makes a list anywhere till suddenly this.

Its like the JD power awards. Awarding vehicles that havent even been in consumer driveways yet. All bought and paid for by manufacturers.

The JD Powers Dependability Study is worth paying attention too, since it is for issues reported by owners during the first three years of ownership.

But their Initial Quality Survey isn't as useful, since it only reports on the first 90 days of ownership.

Unless you have a 3 valve v8 and need to put spark plugs in it. Dumbest design ever.

Any regular v8 early 2000 on up. Spark plugs are a nightmare or better yet, they blow out of the head so have to fix that crap. Either way customer is always pissed when you tell them the bill is WAY HIGHER than a simple plug change or putting a spark plug back in the hole it blew out of.

Yeah. Or way higher still because you have to extract a couple after they break off in the head.

Yeap.... the shop I work for usually tries to turn them down. Putting inserts in isnt bad but the breaking off is something we dont mess with if at all possible because customers always blame the mechanics.

Not for nothing but my aunt in Florida has an 08 Ford F-150 crew can and it has 217k on it. That thing still runs strong and 0 issues.

Not a v8

Or had the issues fixed.

Though I cant believe the transmission lasted that long, never seen one of those class transmissions last past 125k, usually 100k or even some less than that.

Ford has some decent cars, I feel the F150 is the only one they put any real money into when making a quality vehicle.

I have a 2000 F-150 and it's over 200,000 miles on the odometer. So, my personal experience resonates with the article. :banana: No commercial duty piling up 50,000 miles per year. The attached pic is actually from last summer, but it looks identical to that picture today. IMG_1803.jpg
