When my dad bought his Toyota Rav 4, I wasn’t even born, which means 19 years ago. The cars still going well.
Last year when I was buying my BMW 3, my dad told me something at that time I didn’t understand “ Toyota will make you smile today and tomorrow, BMW will make you smile today and make you cry tomorrow”.... now I am selling the BMW and will look for a Toyota.
No Jeep Wranglers. I bought mine new in 2006, still have it. Only thing I've replaced is tires everything is still original including the clutch and top. This is BS, you must have done your survey in Japan. I don't believe it. My wife's car is a Jeep Liberty bought new in 2003, still also in perfect shape, only thing except tires was a new A/C compressor 3 years ago. Problem is with cars today is people don't know how to take care of them. Once it has a problem and It's paid for, they want to get rid of it and get something else to trash. Basically a throw away mentality. But I agree with the Ford haters, worst POS on the road today. Funny though, Ford owns 45% of Toyota Motor Company, go figure...
Possibly just an outlier but I bought an F150 in 06 .. (yes I can do math .. that is 12 years SO FAR) but it is 500 miles short of 500,000 miles and still running strong. Most of the miles were highway the first 10 years but still. Have a great day.
A: you get rid of a Toyota when Y-O-U are tired of IT (N-O-T when it gets tired of YOU !!)B: you will notice that Toys and Hondas are very likely the ONLY vehicles that have this reputation (that normal ppl drive anyway !)C: You will (IF you have been stupid enough to continually BUY "AMERICAN JUNK) see that if you buy a vehicle to SERVE YOU, then an AMERICAN POS is N----O----T what you will drive after you have owned a few.D: IF you got to be OVER 30 and are STILL buying AMERICAN GARBAGE MOBILES, your MOTHER should have learned to SWALLOW !!
Traded in my last celica after 13 years and 130,000 miles with no issues - still had origional battery!
Regret letting it go but wanted a newer celica which is now 12 years old and 90,000 - just had new clutch and battery and will be keeping this as long as possible!
Yep, you can't beat a Toyota or a Honda for reliability. I have a 2004 Tacoma that still has the original rear brakes. It's not abused, receives regular maintenance, got a paint job last year, and I'm often asked if I want to sell it. Nope, not for sale - I love that truck.
80% are Toyota and I have a 1980 Tercel I've owned since November 1985 but one has to spend some $ to maintain it over that length of time & in 2020 it's getting stripped of paint + some minor body work & being redone.
Jeep cherokee I-6 4.0L one has 344000 miles still going strong other has 177000 like a new one. 02 jeep wrangler same motor 266000 miles still strong but also a 06 rubicon same motor keep it low 67000 miles. My mustang 5.0 88 model 286000 miles only reason rebuilt motor was to make it 306 ci built supercharged 680 hp on the ground for fun.
We started buying Toyota’s in 1988
We are on number 13
I had a 2007 Tundra I traded in had 325,000 miles on it
Sold same day I traded
Then bought a 2012 put 285,000 on it
Traded for a 2016 now has 210,000
Only thing I do is change oil and tires
Overall I like Toyota, but I still don't understand why they can't seem to produce better results in the area of fuel economy. I own a 2006 Tacoma that I use mainly for weekend projects and as back up transportation. The truck is very reliable, but the small 4 cyl engine gets no better fuel economy than my 3.6L 6cyl Jeep Grand Cherokee.
I own a 2004 Chevrolet tracker and have no plans of getting rid of it it is in perfect shape only has 50,000 miles on it and I'm going to keep it I'm 78 years old probably until I die, best car SUV I have ever owned in my life!!!
I love my Hyndai Sante fe. It's 2004 and still going. I bought mine used at 24,000 and it's at 198+ I've noticed a lot of them still on the road. I know Hyndai/Kia are Korean, but it's the best car I've owned next to my '71 Plymouth Duster (relative borrowed it and was hit by a truck, the car saved her life). I stuck to Chrysler/Dodge/Plymouth for awhile. After the last one died, I got a used Ford Tempo, almost died in it less than 2 weeks later (never again). My husband's Chevy Colorado was nickle/dime at the end of the loan. Straight up died after it was paid off. I'm sticking to Hyndai. The big 3 here suck anymore and I can't afford a new car payment every 5 years. My husband has bad mouthed it for years, but he's now changing his tune after his 3rd Chevy in 10 years. Love my Hyndai.
Toyota is the best among the rest of the vehicle manufacturer in the world. But the Toyota is only the best where it comes to reliability? I don't think so. Where is the German cars? They are also durable. The american brand specially the ford and chevy are also reliable. Oh come on there is lot more bulletproof vehicle out there. If you know how to maintain the vehicle pretty sure the vehicle will last long and can reach million miles on it.
We're on our third Toyota now. We bought a 97' Carina diesel estate with 100,000 miles on the clock. Other than 3 batteries , tyres and a radiator it ran perfectly. Our 2005 Avensis estate again bought with 100,000 miles has had few bits replaced , wheel bearings, front suspension, a/c shock absorber ,washer pump and cam belt. The ogr bypass valve played up a few times. It's been a great workhorse now with 190,000 miles and has just been put as our 2nd car to our new Rav4 hybrid. Toyota might not be the most exciting cars, but, after a succession of awful french cars ,they are reliable.
I've had great experiences with Hyundai. Had a 2003 Santa Fe that we finally sold this year (2018) with almost 200k miles on it...no major problems. I'm still daily-driving my 2006 Elantra, currently with 231k miles, also no major problems beyond basic wear-and-tear replacements (catalytic, brakes, rotors...finally replace all struts). Very easy to repair.
I am driving company car so called Toyota etios 2017 model the car is expensive is not balanced during cross wind the is shaking as if the no shocks Toyota is robbing people I don't know approved the car is a waist money to buy etios you rather use public transport
My 2004 VW Jetta TDI wagon will be 15 years old on 2 January 2019. I'm at a little over 226,000 miles in September 2018. I plan to keep driving it until it needs a timing belt change for the third time at 300,000 miles. I'll decide then whether or not to have the timing belt changed and continue to drive it. The car may outlast me.
this guy is really into Japanese type cars how about american Brands I have had CHEVY Suv and Trucks THAT LASTED 300 Plus miles With proper care. you can have problems with any car or truck if you are too stupid to know how to take care of it!!!!
So is that because Toyota (and Honda) build such good cars (and they do) or because buyers of those cars tend to be more thrifty? I bought them because they were less expensive to buy and kept them because they were less expensive to repair. Although, they aren't so cheap anymore.
Stats don’t lie.. I’ve owned 4 Tacoma’s 2 Celica’s a ae 86 corolla and currently in my 16 pro 4Runner . They forgot to mention Toyota has one of the hugest resale and trade in values also on the market .
I traded a 2014 Tacoma I paid $27,000 for on my 20,000 mile second oil change at 11.5 months old and got $23,000 on trade . Drive off the lot with 90% of anything else and it’s a lower trade in than that in 11 hours
Older American Iron!
I once owned a brand new 78 Firebird, actually a Red Bird, it looked fabulous.
At about 21,000 my son went out to start the car and came running back saying it was making a horrible noise.
Long story short, at 21,000 it had thrown a main bearing, I made Enquiries about a replacement and was told the following by several different garages.
At 21,000 miles I GOT ONE OF THE FEW GOOD ENGINES, they usually only lasted about 16,000 m8les.
The engine was touted by GM as the NEW EVEN FIRING BUICK V6 ENGINE.
This was the worst problem but the list of other problems is daunting.
Remember the Chevy Vega, I had one of those.
Remember the Chevy Monza, designed for the late unlamented GMRE, GENERAL MOTORS ROTARY ENGINE.
GM replaced the GMRE with a 4 cylinder aluminum engine, WITH NO IRON CYLINDER LINER.
The aluminum cylinder wore into an OVAL by 20,000 miles and BURNED MORE OIL THAN GAS.
OLD AMERICAN IRON, YOU ARE INSANE.
