How long do cars last? A complete guide to car longevity

With the average age of vehicles in the U.S at nearly 12 years, and increasing steadily year after year, more people are keeping their cars for longer. One of the main reasons behind this is the higher quality of materials and several other improvements in modern cars. In general, a passenger car can last over 200,000 miles, and with modern battery technologies, an eclectic car can last over 300,000 miles if taken care of. 

There are several exceptions in this case, like Irv Gordon who is still driving his Volvo P1800S, bought new in 1966 even after 3.2 million miles, and Victor Sheppard’s million-mile Toyota Tundra. Solid proof that if you buy the right car and treat it right, it can last a lot longer than 12 years and 200,000 miles.
