How long do cars last?


Answer by  flamiss22 (5081)

Cars last as long as we practice good maintenance. Treat your car as you treat your baby and you will get the maximum usage out of it.


Answer by  technogeek (6640)

With proper care and maintenance, a car can last well beyond 200,000 miles. There have been stories of Chevy trucks lasting well beyond 400,000 miles, but 200,000 is not a far stretch. Just keep the oil changed, and the transmission fluid fresh and the engine tuned and you should be able to keep your car for a long time.

It depends on how we maintain the car. If we service properly and repaired as soon as it gets fault,the life of car is surely 20 years,otherwise it fall below that.

A well-maintained car will last as long as it's well maintained. There are several carrs that have lasted since they were first produced. Model T's are still around and operating since they have been well taken care of. A general rule of thumb is 100-150 thousand miles is the lifetime.

That depends on maintenance and driving habits, and whether the vehicle avoids crashes involving serious damage. The DOT says the average life of a car is 12 years or 128,500 miles, yet clearly thousands last longer. Toyotas have a great reputation for attaining over 200,000 miles if well cared for.

The can last as long as you want them to. Every car will last a different amount of time. As long as they are not mistreated and you do the proper maintenance then they can last many years.
