It can be easy to get caught up in the fashion and glamour that comes along with finding a new vehicle. However, it can also be easy to not consider the longevity of your vehicle, which is far more important to receive a true return on your investment. In order to ensure your next car is one that lasts you for five years or longer, let’s take a look at the four most reliable cars on the market in 2018.
Lexus RX Hybrid
Over 24% of those who purchase the Lexus RX Hybrid are still driving it ten years later, which is the main reason it ranks first on this list.
The Lexus RX has soared in popularity throughout the last decade, and you will more than likely see several while driving down the interstate. The fact of the matter is this vehicle is known for being extremely durable and is proven, both scientifically and in practice, to last for a very long time.
The Toyota RAV4 is another vehicle that has grown in popularity over the past decade, in large part due to its longevity.
When attempting to purchase an SUV that is dependable, you significantly lower your chance of going wrong when choosing to buy a Toyota, and the RAV4 is one of the best Toyota options you can possibly choose.
For some reason, owners of the Subaru Forester tend to replace their vehicle far less often than those who own a different type of vehicle.
While the Subaru Forester usually doesn’t score well with J.D. Power and Associates as it pertains to reliability, the fact of the matter is people who purchase a new Subaru Forester are typically still driving it ten years after purchase.
With fantastic fuel economy, a large cargo area and a tight turning radius, the Honda CR-V is extremely practical.
When combined with the fact that Honda has a keen ability to create high quality, long lasting vehicles, it makes complete sense why the Honda CR-V is proven to last for such a long time. With over 25% of Honda CR-V owners still driving it after ten years, it checks out as an extremely long-lasting vehicle.

Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to Your Car Moving Questions
The hardest thing for people researching car moving companies to understand is that the prices they are getting are not hard and fast gaurantees, but rather ESTIMATES of what one company thinks it will take to get a vehicle moved promptly versus another company's opinion of what it will take. Don't be fooled, there are not carriers committed to take your vehicle at these quoted prices, the company you choose will still have to get to work getting a carrier to commit to move it at the price they quote you.
Your total price breaks down into two parts, the broker's fee (or 'deposit' as everyone calls it) and the carriers fee (your COD amount) Make no mistake about this, EVERYONE YOU ARE GETTING SALES CALLS FROM IS GOING TO BROKER YOUR MOVE. In this industry, there are brokers who try to fool you into thinking that they are the actual carriers and there are an equal amount of carriers who sell themselves on the fact that they have a truck or two but are not being honest about the fact that they broker out 90% of the orders they book. Here is a quick easy way to tell, if a company takes an up front fee, whether they call it a deposit or any other name, they are a broker. Carriers do not take any payment until the vehicle is delivered.
In our opinion, you are crazy to do so. Have you ever been paid up front for the work that you perform for your employer? Why would you pay a fee up front when there are reliable and trustworthy companies like ours that won't ask for it until we provide you with your carriers details?
The average transit time from pick up to delivery on any vehicle going coast to coast will be between one and two weeks. From there you can figure your transit time based on how far your vehicle is traveling, i.e. from either coast to the Midwest might average 3-7 days.
