200,000 mile club: Which vehicles are tops?
During its Super Bowl commercials Volkswagen bragged about all the vehicles it makes that belong to the 100,000 mile club.
Some new research gives drivers a look at what makes and models have driven into the 200,000 mile club.
The research comes from ISeeCars.com. It's a website that collects millions of used-car sales from around the country. It went looking for vehicles with at least 200,000 miles on their odometers. The site says it analyzed 30 million listings from 1981 to 2010.
It came up with a list of the top 12 vehicles that have clocked 200,000 miles. Only one in the top 12 was a car. The Ford F-250 Super Duty came in first, with 4.3 percent of its vehicles zooming into 200K territory. The Honda Accord is the lone car on the list, coming in at #12 with 1.6 percent belonging to the elite mileage club.
