    Isn’t it interesting that no American manufacturer automobiles appear on the list. In fact, all 15 vehicles are Japanese, and all but one are Toyota or Honda. I’m disappointed that my Subaru Legacy didn’t make it. We just finally parted with a 24 year old Legacy and replaced it with a 2017 Subaru Outback.

      Al – That’s amazing that you got 24 years out of your Legacy! And here I was feeling good about the 17 years we’ve gotten out of our Toyota Sienna. Imagine our kids’ reactions when I tell them we may just keep it another 7 years 🙂
