American cars are usually carefree as long as they are maintained properly, can go for over 200,000 miles easily! Just stay away from German luxury cars. Jeep Cherokee is a safe bet.

I've seen loads of Cherokee 4.0L going way beyond 300,000. I have also seen a couple over 400,000 and one over 500,000. Take care of it, and even though they are quirky, they last forever. One of the greatest engines ever built, bar none!

I also have one cherokee at 250,000 and one at 340,000. The 250,000 is only low because I have about 125,000 on my bike

My 2001 XJ just made 350,000 and going strong despite a relatively modest level of maintenance that I have been providing. Per my New Year resolution it will get better care from now on. This is the best ride that I have ever had.
