Top 15 models kept for more than 15 years

The iSeeCars site recently released a list of 15 vehicles that owners keep for more than 15 years. To carry out this study, the iSeeCars team analyzed more than 750,000 cars from the years 1981 to 2003 that were sold in 2018. With these data, a list of 15 vehicles was drawn up.

Not only does the Toyota banner dominate the list with 9 entries out of 15, but the brand also mobilizes the top 5 positions. “Japanese vehicles are known for their quality and reliability, which is reaffirmed by the results of this list,” said iSeeCars CEO Phong Ly.
