    Toyota Siennas expected to last more than 200k miles - Consumer Reports

    I think CR went off the deep end recently recommending the iPhone 3GS over the iPhone 4 and in their review of the 2011 Sienna. This is more confirmation as suggesting Porsche as a 200k+ mile brand is actually more ridiculous than anything else they have ever said AFAIK.

    I do wonder about that Porsche recommendation.

    You know, my brother had a Volvo station wagon for a while about 15 years ago. He bought it because of their reputation for safety and he had three young kids. It spent more time in the shop than on the road. He often wondered if that's how they got their low accident ratings-- volvo being off the road in repairs more often than on it.

    As to the Sienna expected to go more than 200,000 miles-- I certainly expect that out of my new 2011. My 1999 Sienna just turned 298,000 miles and is still going strong.

    Any car will last "forever" if the owner is willing to spend $$$$$$ fixing/maintaining it and time finding parts for it....or fabricating them from scratch as they do in Cuba.

    But, yeah....I should hope that my 2004 will go 200+K miles. My '85 Honda Prelude & '96 Nissan Maxima both did 270+K before I (YMMV) decided they were not worth "fixing" any more. Both of them were mostly trouble-free (excluding expected wear-&-tear & regular/expected maintenance/replacement items) past 150+K miles.

    YMMV.

    Absolutely!

    Volvos are fine cars, but when they were running an advertising campaign many years ago about the long life of Volvos in Sweden, they conveniently failed to mention that all brands of cars lasted a long time there, because owners were required to maintain their cars well to be allowed to drive them.

    Of course Porches stay in service a long time... who is going to scrap anything that expensive and with that much fanatic interest just because some parts have worn out or they want a newer car that connects with their iPod? I wonder how long a Rolls-Royce lives?

    Given some of the crap which CR has published, that's saying a lot.
