No. Too many variables...even when sampling a large population. Environment plays a big factor, too. The '10+ OB will suffer corrosion in the salt belt on the early side, given Toyoburu's choice to use cheap steel instead of alloys and high tensile steel to keep the price down. In a cleaner environment mileage can become somewhat more important, buut it's a bit too early to tell yet. In a year or two we'll have a better idea how fragile (non- durable) the CVT turns out to be. So far the MTBF is just a guess.

Well, I'm lucky to be on the West Coast in SoCal. No salted roads here , even in the local mountains, so, the body will be rust free. On the CVT transmission, we'll see. I personally think that how you drive and maintain your car makes a significant difference. Some people are very hard on their cars.
