What do the scores tell new car shoppers?
Consumer Reports says each car brand’s overall score for individual models is based on four key factors: the road test, reliability, owner satisfaction, and safety. Subaru’s top picks are the 2022 Subaru Forester, Outback, Crosstrek, Impreza, and Legacy. The refreshed 2022 Forester is now a Consumer Reports’ top-10 car of 2022 and the best in class.

Why Subaru is not included in the top models to go beyond 200,000 miles
Consumer Reports says the Top 12 Cars That Go 200,000 Miles list includes the «most problem-free cars.» CR says that many other models in its annual auto surveys reached the 200,000 milestone, «but they did not have as high a percentage of trouble-free vehicles.»
Are Subaru models reliable?
According to the latest Consumer Reports ratings and reliability report, Consumer Reports is inconsistent with its ranks because, for the 2022 model year, Subaru now has four models that score highest in their class. The 2022 Subaru Forester, 2022 Crosstrek, and 2022 Outback scored the best SUVs in their category. The 2022 Impreza was the best in the small car segment.
Subaru says 96 percent of Subaru vehicles sold in the last ten years are still on the road today, more than Honda or Toyota brands. The data is based on Experian Automotive non-luxury vehicles in operation vs. total new registrations for the model year 2011-2020 as of December 2020.
Are Subaru vehicles trouble-free? In our experience of working with the Subaru brand for over 40 years, Subaru has had issues with some of its models, and no car brand is trouble-free. Overall, Subaru has been one of the most reliable car brands.
The current generation 2022 Subaru Forester, Outback, Crosstrek, Ascent, and other new models are among the most reliable new vehicles that will go well over 200,000 miles and, with regular maintenance, have proven to be long-lasting vehicles.

With the cost of vehicles on the rise, it just makes sense to look into one that can last seemingly forever. However, with the endless twists and turns of the internet, it can be hard to find the right information, let alone understand everything to make an informed decision.
People looking for a long-lasting vehicle have a monumental task before them. Conflicting reports and out there car jargon can confuse the average, everyday buyer. Thankfully, there are some companies out there that are trying to make things easier for ordinary people. ISeeCars.com conducted a study of more than 13.5 million cars to find out which models offered the longest-lasting cars.
The study focused on cars that could reach and go beyond 200,000 miles. On average, about 1.2% of those models reached the goal, though there were some very distinct winners (SUVs specifically seemed to be the heavy hitters). ISeeCars.com CEO Phong Ly said, “While today’s vehicles have the potential to reach 200,000 miles with proper maintenance and care, certain models are far more likely to achieve that milestone.”
Based on this information, we’ve compiled a list of 20 cars most likely to reach that 200k milestone. These cars were built to last, and they seem to be living up to that expectation. See if your car made the list.
20. Nissan Maxima
Not quite as popular as the Altima, the Maxima has still proved itself as reliable time and time again. With proper care and maintenance, 1.3% of models have seen more than 200,000 on the dashboard.
19. Toyota Prius
The first of two Hybrids on this list, the Toyota Prius is another reliable Toyota car that makes the list. Thanks to its crazy high fuel consumption and easy maintenance, 1.3% of models making it over 200k.
18. Toyota Camry
Toyota is known for manufacturing reliable cars with excellent fuel consumption, and the Camry is a perfect example of that. The Camry isn’t as high as our other contenders, but with 1.5% of models reaching over 200k, it still raises a bit higher than the average.
17. Chevrolet Impala
Tied with the earlier mentioned Toyota Camry, the Chevy Impala also holds a 1.5% of models reaching upwards of 200k miles.
