Of all the cars one owns in his or her lifetime, there will always be a few standout favorites. This can be for any number of reasons. The reason I hope to address in this thread is durability.
Question: Of all the cars you have owned, which ones held up for the most miles? How many miles did they have on them when you eventually had to retire them?
Bonus Question: What did you like and dislike the most about these cars?
My most durable cars were:
1989 Dodge Daytona (no turbo) - Mileage = 300k (estimated, the speedometer stopped at 70K)
Pros: Efficient, very fun to drive and easy to work on. Cheap parts made extended use possible.
Cons: Needed lots of repairs at times. Timing belt failed with no engine damage more than once.
1996 Dodge Neon - 295K Miles
Pros: 36 MPG with reasonable performance. Very reliable and efficient car, even after 2 major accidents.
Cons: Did not have the sports car feel. Hatch back would have provided more flexibility.
These cars are the reason I alway buy manual transmission cars, they are damn near indestructible!
