200,000 miles on the odometer and counting


Pickups and SUVs are standing the test of time, according to a survey on  iSeeCars.com.

The website, which lists cars for sale, decided to take a look at what vehicles in their database were driven longer. No car made the top 10, which is filled with large pickups and SUVs.

Why so many trucks? “Clearly, some of these vehicles are used for work and they are driven more miles but also perhaps get better maintenance,” Phong Ly, co-founder and CEO of iSeeCars, tells CBS MoneyWatch.

The vehicle for sale on iSeeCars.com that has the highest percentage of listings with 200,000 or more miles on the odometer? It’s the Ford F-250 Super Duty at 4.2 percent. There are about 95,000 F-250s for sale on the website, 4,000 of which have clocked more than 200K.

The way the website made their calculations might not be fair to cars. There are about 6,000 Honda Accords with more than 200,000 miles for sale, but  377,000 Accords in total for the ubiquitous car. So it’s percentage is a measly 1.6, putting it in the top spot for cars but 12th overall.
