If you’re buying a new car, chances are you want one that can actually go the distance. Fortunately, several Honda models among this year’s lineup can last for 200,000-miles and beyond. But that’s not the only reason to consider putting a new Honda at the top of your shopping list.
Are Hondas really that reliable?
It’s really no secret that Honda is a reliable brand. In fact, according to Consumer Reports, plenty of models among this year’s lineup scored some pretty high reliability ratings. Take, for instance, the 2021 Honda Clarity and the 2021 Honda HR-V, both of which earned a five out of five predicted reliability rating from Consumer Reports. Or the 2021 Honda Insight, which also earned a perfect score.
And if those particular models aren’t what you had in mind? Consumer Reports gave the 2021 Honda CR-V a four out of five predicted reliability rating, which may not be a perfect score but is still impressive. The 2021 Honda Ridgeline also earned a four out of five predicted reliability rating from Consumer Reports. So if it’s a pickup that you’d prefer? Honda has you covered.
Do Honda cars last long?
But how many miles will a Honda last? If you’re planning on keeping your next vehicle for a fairly long time, the answer to that question is pretty important. Fortunately, according to iSee Cars, you can count on a Honda to go pretty far. In fact, after analyzing more than 15.8 million cars sold in 2019 to determine the brands with the most vehicles likely to reach 200,000-miles, 1.6% of Honda models sold in 2019 reached 200,000-miles.
According to iSee Cars, Honda is the second longest-lasting car brand too. Unfortunately, with 1.8% of Toyota models sold in 2019 having reached 200,000-miles, Toyota was able to secure the top spot while Honda was not. iSee Cars reports that other long-lasting car brands include GMC, Chevy, and Ford.
The longest-lasting Honda models
But let’s talk about which Honda models last the longest. According to iSee Cars, with 1.8% of models sold in 2019 having reached 200,000-miles, the Honda Accord is the longest-lasting midsize sedan in its segment. Meanwhile, the Honda CR-V had 1.1% of models sold in 2019 reach 200,000-miles, making it the longest-lasting compact SUV in its segment.
With 3.0% of models sold in 2019 having reached 200,000-miles, the Honda Ridgeline is the longest-lasting compact truck on the market. According to iSee Cars, 2.3% of Civic models sold in 2019 surpassed 200,000-miles too, making it the longest-lasting compact car. And the Honda Odyssey? iSee Cars says that 2.7% of models sold in 2019 lasted for 200,000-miles and beyond, making it the longest-lasting minivan in its segment.
