What manufacturers make cars that last a long time?

There are a few manufacturers that stand out for longevity across their models. At the top of that list are Toyota, Ford, Chevrolet, and Volkswagen. Each of these manufacturers trades in dependable cars that are popular choices across the board, which comes with a surprising bonus—if you run into trouble, they’ll be less expensive to fix. While having a more exotic vehicle can be fun, if you need to order a part it could take a while and a pretty penny to get what you need.
