Cars That Stand the Test of Time

A vehicle is a major expense and owners expect their conveyance to last beyond the day they make the last payment. Unlike the cars and trucks of the past, today’s vehicles contain complex systems and devices, along with complicated computer systems. Mechanical parts wear out and break down. Contributing to maintenance costs is the deteriorating condition of the U.S. highway system.

It pays to shop around and perform due diligence before purchasing a vehicle. Many owners benefit from exploring Consumer Reports’ assessment or the yearly J.D. Power study. It’s also a good idea for consumers to research the vehicles they’re considering and read reviews by individuals that have actually bought the car.

It’s important to understand that even a top-rated vehicle can experience problems and there’s no such thing as a perfect vehicle. Some people prefer to purchase a vehicle from a specific company, while others just want the most value for their dollar no matter where it’s manufactured or what class size in which it falls. Don’t be afraid to consider all options.

The Lexus is the top pick for 2019 by J.D. Powers for the eighth consecutive year. It’s followed closely by Toyota, sharing the No. 2 position with Porsche. Chevrolet is in the No. 4 position, with Buick occupying the No. 5 slot. J.D. Power ranks 2016 as the most dependable used vehicles, citing ongoing problems in newer models as manufacturers try to incorporate more and more features.

Consumer Reports lists the following 2019 vehicles as the top picks for performance, reliability, satisfaction, and safety for those seeking a new vehicle.

  • Mid-size car – Toyota Camry Hybrid
  • Luxury SUV – BMW X5
  • Compact SUV – Subaru Forester
  • Compact luxury car – Audi A4
  • Mid-size SUV – Subaru Ascent
  • Large Car – Toyota Avalon Hybrid
  • Hybrid/Electric – Toyota Prius
  • Full-size truck – Ford F-150
  • Mid-size car – Toyota Camry Hybrid
  • Sub-compact car – Hyundai Kona and the Toyota Yaris

Shopping around, checking reviews, and examining assessments by respected industry experts are essential steps when purchasing any vehicle. Today’s consumer has a myriad of choices, whether they’re looking for a good used vehicle or to make a brand new purchase.
