Many people are hesitant to purchase a used vehicle that is close to, at or above 100,000 miles. For some reason, people think that once a vehicle hits that threshold, problems will begin to emerge.
However, many vehicles on the road today are designed to last significantly longer than 100,000 miles with minimal repair needs. If you are interested in purchasing a Chevrolet, here is some information you need to know about how long they last.
The Longest Lasting Chevrolet
One of the longest lasting Chevrolets reported is a 2006 Chevy Silverado 3500. A couple reports that they have used this car daily and have amassed over 1.2 million miles on the car.
In that time, they state the only problem they have encountered was a minor oil leak. The computer also had to be reset at the million-mile mark. They still love and trust their truck and drive it over 500 miles daily.
The Average Miles a Chevy Lasts
Chevrolet vehicles have a reputation for dependable performance. As such, many Chevys typically last 200,000 miles or more.
In fact, the Chicago Tribune created a list of the longest-lasting vehicles on the road and many of them were Chevrolet. That list included the Silverado 2500 HD, Suburban, Tahoe and Silverado 1500. These vehicles all routinely last 200,000 or longer.
