by Diminished Value Car Appraiser on January 9, 2018

After analyzing more than 650,000 vehicle transactions for cars from the 1981-2002 model years sold in 2017, w list was compiled of the top 10 cars vehicle owners are holding on to for more than 15 years. It is no surprise that 8 Toyota vehicles occupy the top 10 spots.

Top 10 Vehicles Owned for More than 15 Years.
For every 100 new cars sold, below are the vehicle most kept by their original owners for more than 15 years.

Rank Make Model Retained Per 100
1 Toyota Highlander 18
2 Toyota Sienna 17
3 Toyota Tundra 15
4 Toyota Prius 14
5 Toyota RAV4 12
6 Honda Odyssey 12
7 Toyota Sequoia 12
8 Toyota Tacoma 12
9 Honda CR-V 11
10 Toyota Avalon 11

In contrast, the vehicle least to be kept for 15+ years is the Jeep Grand Cherokee with only 4 out of 100 original owners opting to retain this mediocre vehicle.

It is notable to mention that when averaging all the models of a particular brand, Subaru comes in second to Toyota with 10 out of 100 cars retained for more than 15 years by the original owners.
