My expert mechanic team has 100 years of experience, here are the cars they know really last | The Sun
A TEAM of mechanics with around 100 years of experience has revealed the cars that really are built to last.
The car experts took to social media to share with followers the cars they've seen that have covered starship mileages and yet are still running.
The workers from a garage in Austin, Texas, said that Toyota and Honda cars seem to be the most durable.
One mechanic said: "I've seen over 500,000 miles on some Toyotas, and some with more than 500,000 miles."
Another mechanic from the same garage said: "I've seen 250,000 miles on a Chevy Suburban, and it may last quite a while if they take care of the maintenance."
A third mechanic claims that she repaired a 1993 Honda Accord with 555,000 miles on the clock.
