New Cars That Will Last 250K Miles

If you're the type of person who buys a new car and drives it until the wheels fall off, then this is for you. Forbes recently released a list of what they consider the 10 most-likely vehicles that will keep on running for over 250,000 miles.

Forbes analyzed reliability ratings and looked into common problem areas on vehicles 10 years old and newer. Vehicles on the list include the Scion xB, Toyota Camry, Subaru Forester, and Mazda Mazda6. Below is the full list.

And if you're considering any of these long-lasting vehicles, don't forget to use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to see the best prices being offered by local dealers.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The 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 Network

Select 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 / CarsDirect

TrueCar, 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.
