    Dat 'yota reliability ain't no joke. Hondas have a strong showing here but I've heard their recent cars have plummeted to American levels of quality. Time will tell if they remain on this list in another 5 years.

    And here is the list for sports cars:

    Surprised at this one. Thought the 911 be #1. And the M5 is notorious for horrible reliability.

    The only reason the Landcruiser isn't #1 on this list, is that it's a $90k vehicle--those that can afford it new can also afford to buy a new car more often than necessary.

    First generation came out 1997, and I still see plenty of them around.

    Subaru inspires cult like loyalty. Once a Subaru owner, you’ll always go back. I had a Subaru before I joined the Air Force, then went overseas and never needed a car. First car back as a civilian, I wanted a Subaru. My current Outback has saved my life several times now.

    To be fair, a lot of those sports cars are garaged at least half the year. I'm willing to bet they are secondary or weekend car... at least in cold climates.

    I have a 23 year old surf (4runner) and it's basically indestructible.

    Drives like a dream too.

    A Chevy Camaro is on that list? I would never imagined that.

    Still have our 2010 Honda Civic since late 2009. We plan to keep pushing it for as long as possible, but I doubt we will reach 15 years. I'm cheap AF though so we will see.

    I had my first Camaro (2001) for nine years and put 160,000 miles on it and still ran like a champ. I put very little money into that car. I wouldn't have even sold it if it wasn't for people stopping to make me offers on the car. I finally got a decent one and said it's all yours.

    I see some Subaru Imprezas and Mitsubishi Lancer Evolutions here. Are those reliable? I shoulda bought one of those to pretend I'm Fast and Furious.

    1) yes toyotas are that reliable,

    2) the owners may just be thrifty
