Forbes just released a list of 2013 model-year vehicles that they're predicting can run for 250,000 miles - or even more-with proper care.
On the list: the Acura RDX, Lexus RX 350, Mazda MX-5 Miata, and Toyota Yaris. Be sure to check out the list below, and as always, I recommend you use the free RydeShopper to see what these vehicles are selling for in your local area.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:
Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted NetworkSelect the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).
Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirectTrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
