Among the vehicles on the road today, which of them are the most reliable? It's a question that is often up for debate on many car enthusiasts. Some vehicles are too new to accurately determine reliability, but for older vehicles, it is quite obvious.
While some opinions are formulated around the fact that Japanese vehicles statistically exceed the mileage of other manufacturer's vehicles, some people are adamant that almost any vehicle can be extremely reliable if properly maintained.
It's sometimes difficult to define a reliable vehicle. From a mechanic's perspective, it can mean any vehicle that exceeds the average milage for its model/year without any *major* repairs. Other people seem to think it can include any vehicle that is still on the road in mass quantities, regardless of the repairs.
In the interest of being far to all auto manufacturers, I did a very inclusive search on this subject, and am pleased to share my findings! I'm only going to post the prominent results by manufacturer, because posting individual vehicles would take days!!
The above car was mine. I purchased it for $250 dollars and it tried to kill it!!! (one of my previous posts has more pictures) ...I beat the hell out of it. I took it off-road, and I even hit a tree at 30km/hr which is why the bumper is completely fucked. It still drove fine! If you want a car that you can beat the hell out of, I recommend a Toyota. These cars are reliable as shit!!!
I could keep posting, but I feel like I'm going to pass out from a combination of sleep deprivation and drug experimentation. I think I'll end the post here, cheers!
