There are a few different reasons why a car might stay on the road forever. When a model turns up on the list of most reliable vehicles every year, the automaker deserves a great deal of credit. The company created something that could stand the wear and tear of daily driving, regardless of climate or driver skill. In some cases, owners have an attachment to the vehicle and will pay whatever it takes to keep it going. But it is not necessarily a good value to keep something just because it lasts.
When you see work vehicles like pickup trucks or taxis ranking among the longest-lasting cars, you know the investment was probably worth it.
While 100,000 miles used to be a worthy goal for a vehicle, the bar has risen higher in recent years. Consumer Reports began publishing lists of cars most likely to hit 200,000 miles and
keep on going even after reaching said goal. Search engines like iSeeCars have done the same, using results from actual cars that changed hands on the used market. Now, it’s time to look even higher.
Here are 20 cars that could take you to 300,000 miles and beyond. To compile the list, we included vehicles that had the highest percentage of cars lasting the longest, cars that have been the most reliable over the past decade, and cars that went on sale with the most miles. In some cases, vehicles met all three criteria.

1. Honda Civic:
Sales figures are an obvious endorsement for the staying power of Honda Civic. Every year, the compact model places in the top 10 of all vehicles sold in America, and it made the list of
longest-lasting among Consumer Reports subscribers in 2015, too. Finally, iSeeCars counted it among the cars that owners keep for 10 years or longer. It can hardly be a coincidence. If you want a safe bet for a compact car that could hit 300,000 miles, go with a Civic.

2. Subaru Legacy/Outback:
If you look at owner satisfaction, dependability, and fuel economy, you’ll always find Subaru ranking among the best auto brands . Therefore, it was no surprise when we saw Legacy show
up among cars lasting over 200,000 miles. The high-rated sedan, along with the Outback on which it is based, gives car owners a good chance at going to 300,000 miles and beyond. You’ll get your money’s worth with this one.

3. Toyota Tacoma:
The new-for-2016 Tacoma didn’t get great reliability scores out of the gate, but this pickup had an incredible run earlier in this decade , and was a warrior in the early 2000s. When we
conducted a search of used cars with more than 300,000 miles on them, the 2002 Tacoma was the most common result. As one of the most enduring models from the most reliable brand,
used Tacomas are great bets to steam past your highest mileage goal.

4. Lexus CT 200h:
There is no question about the durability of Toyota Prius, and Lexus buyers have access to the same platform in the CT 200h. Whatever
you might compromise in engine power or handling, this car makes up for in fuel economy and overall dependability. Consumer Reports named it one of the most reliable cars of 2016 based on agency tests and consumer feedback.
In short, it’s a good bet to go the distance — maybe as far as 300,000 miles.

5. Chevrolet Silverado 1500:
Like Accord versus Camry, the annual battle between Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado 1500 is worth your attention. Both pickups are top sellers every year, and the automakers have a running battle to outperform the other on work
sites. (Ford still has the edge.) If you look at trucks with a zillion miles on them, you’re going to find Silverado right there. These trucks are built to endure abuse and last forever, so there’s a good chance you can blow past
300,000 miles in one, as so many have in the past.

6. Honda Odyssey:
Betting on a Honda to go the distance is fairly safe. This trend continues with the Odyssey, the popular minivan that can take a beating and refuses to die. iSeeCars data showed the Odyssey among the top 10 vehicles people
keep longer than a decade, and Consumer Reports subscribers revealed it was among the most common with over 200,000 miles on the odometer. For a family car, Honda’s legendary reliability comes up big here.

7.  Toyota Corolla:
It seems like everyone has a friend or family member with a Corolla that’s been around forever. In fact, the data backs up any hunch you might have about this cards dependability. Consumer Reports found it among the best in reliability for every model year between 2007 and 2017. If you were to pick up a used Corolla in good shape, you’d have a good shot at keeping it for another decade.

8. Ford F-150:
The most popular cars are also sometimes the most reliable. With a little searching, you can find many older Ford F-150s for sale with 300,000 miles or more used, and Consumer
Reports has named the best-selling vehicle in America a strong candidate to go several hundred-thousand miles. We wonder if (or how) that will change once F-150 goes hybrid . It could very well become the Prius of pickups: economical and impossible to kill.

9. Honda Accord:
Honda Accord challenges Toyota Camry for the title of best-selling car every year for a reason: They last. You’ll always find Accord among the most reliable sedans, and it’s also one of the
most common cars people keep for longer than a decade. If you drive carefully and change the oil on a regular basis, we wouldn’t be surprised
if you steam past 300,000 miles in an Accord with little trouble. Go with the four-cylinder engine for the best value.

10. Toyota Highlander:
The Toyota Highlander Hybrid led the pack among cars people keep 10 years or longer, and the standard Highlander was close behind it. These SUVs have staying power, rock-climbing reliability scores, and the benefit of a strong
brand behind it. Take good care of one and it might last well beyond 300,000 miles. With the best Toyotas, the sky — or infinity, since we're talking about mileage — seems to be the limit.

11. Subaru Forester:
Though it didn’t score quite as high as Legacy or Outback, Subaru Forester has posted a remarkable number of cars exceeding 200,000 miles since 2014. In the latest survey by iSeeCars, this model matched the tally of Prius and Corolla. Meanwhile, 24% of Forester owners ended up keeping their cars over 10
years in the study on long-term relationships with cars. If you were taking bets, this vehicle would have an excellent chance of staying on the road.

12. Ford Escape Hybrid:
In 2005, when Ford launched the Escape Hybrid, the automaker was not known for electric powertrains. Early success in New York City taxi fleets changed that. The first 18 Escape Hybrids all accumulated over 175,000 miles in a year and a half on NYC streets. As of 2017, Escape Hybrids remained a significant part of the taxi fleet despite the model’s 2012 phase-out. Each one we’ve encountered had close to 400,000
miles on the odometer. If you see a used model, consider picking it up for the long haul.

13. Toyota Camry:
The knock on Camry has always been about its boring characteristics. Funny how no one knocks its reliability or staying power. On the contrary, those things were always taken for granted with Camry. Naturally, it turned up
among the cars with the highest number of models hitting 200,000 miles, so we have no doubt it can keep going after that. Over 20% of Camry owners keep their cars longer than 10 years, so it seems like a common goal.

14. Honda CR-V:
In 10 straight years of Consumer Reports testing, Honda CR-V scored among the elite in reliability. This top seller, which ranked seventh in U.S. sales for 2016, tends to stick around
households for over a decade. Over 25% of CR- V owners had their cars for longer than 10 years when they went to sell in 2016. Combine those two stats and you have a solid chance at hitting
high mileage marks.

15. Lexus GX:
The GX is that rare Lexus that doesn’t have a Toyota counterpart, but both models share the body-on-frame design that was the hallmark of the original SUVs. As far as reliability and ride
quality go, Lexus GX delivers much better scores overall. It made the top 10 in the 2016 Consumer Reports list, and is known to eat up miles with ease. Next stop, 300,000.

16. Toyota Prius:
Once upon a time, car buyers worried whether a hybrid battery would last long enough to make a Toyota Prius worth it. Well over a decade later,
we know hybrid batteries are almost invincible. That’s how Prius ended up as No. 1 on the list of cars with more than 200,000 miles on them. (Some have broken the 600,000 mark .) The
latest edition hasn’t lost its edge either:
Consumer Reports had the new Prius leading two different classes for reliability in 2016.

17. Chevrolet Suburban:
Suburban has had its share of safety and reliability issues over the years, but this behemoth sticks around for the long haul. Research by iSeeCars showed almost 5% of Suburbans showing better than 200,000 miles when they went up for sale in 2016. (Only four vehicles did better.) It might give you some headaches — avoid models from 2014 or later — but Suburban has proven to be “like a rock”overall.

18. Toyota Sequoia:
We’ll stop including so many Toyotas when they stop lasting so long. For now, we have no choice but to follow what the research shows: Toyota Sequoia is an excellent bet to exceed 300,000 miles on the odometer. The 2007 and 2008 models that ranked so high in reliability
formed the backbone for the 4.8% that had over 200,000 miles on them when owners went to sell in 2016. Only a handful of cars did better.

19. Ford Expedition:
Between 2014 and 2017, Ford Expedition has been among the most reliable vehicles in America, joining the “much better than average” class in Consumer Reports testing. (The 2012
and 2013 models are not recommended.) Add that reputation to a stunning percentage of models exceeding 200,000 miles and you have
the goods for a truck ready for the long haul. If you need any more proof that it’s reliable, consider this: It’s based on the F-150 pickup platform.

20. Toyota RAV4:
For a car that’s ranked among the top 10 in U.S. sales for years, Toyota RAV4 has an amazing percentage of owners who keep them for the long haul. Nearly 25% of RAV4 consumers had their vehicles for at least 10 years when they went to sell them in 2016. Model years 2012 through 2015 were among the very best in reliability, so you should find a keeper in that group.

A twisted Colorado father was driven to allegedly murder his son when the teen discovered “disgusting” photos of the deviant dad eating feces from a diaper while dressed in women’s clothes, according to reports.

Mark Redwine allegedly flew into a rage when his 13-year-old son, Dylan, and his older brother Cory unearthed the embarrassing snaps, ABC 7 in Denver reported.
The two boys planned on confronting their dad about the photos – ultimately leading to Dylan’s sudden disappearance from his dad’s home in Vallecito in November 2012.
“I have seen the photos,” Cory Redwine told ABC 7. “It shows him wearing women’s clothes and makeup and a diaper and then eating his feces from the diaper. It was disgusting. We couldn’t believe it.”
On Saturday, following a five-year investigation, Mark Redwine was arrested in Bellingham, Washington, and charged with Dylan’s death. He is being held on $1 million bail.
Cory called the arrest “bittersweet.”

“It’s exciting to know that justice is coming for my little brother,” he said. “I’m obviously excited. I believe they have the right man, but it’s still sad that we even have to go through this.”
Cory said the “disturbing” photos were likely just the beginning of a feud between his brother and father, who had a violent temper. Cory also believes his dad is mentally ill.

“I think Dylan had a lot more than just pictures that he wanted to get across to Mark,” said Cory. “He’s just a sick person, but he’s fully aware of his actions, and he’s fine with being that person.
 If that’s how he wants to live his life, then well, we can see where that gets you. He’s where he belongs.”

Mark was named as a person of interest in Dylan’s disappearance nearly two years ago and had denied involvement in his son’s death, according to the Denver Post.
But in 2013, some of the boy’s remains were found in the area surrounding Mark’s home, where he’d last been for a court-ordered visit during Thanksgiving week.
Two years later, hikers found the boy’s skull about a mile and a half from where the first batch of remains was discovered.
Dylan’s blood was also found in several places within Mark’s home – as well as in the bed of his pickup truck and on the clothes he’d been wearing the night the boy disappeared, according to an indictment.

Investigators said Dylan's skull was found in difficult terrain that was easily accessible by a road that Redwine was very familiar with.
The skull had injuries consistent with blunt force trauma and two small markings that appeared to be tool marks from a knife, the indictment alleges.
Months after the first remains were found in 2013, Hall said she believed her ex-husband killed Dylan. 'I always have from day one, when he was missing,' she told The Pine River Times at the time. According to the indictment, Dylan had not been getting along with his father prior to his disappearance as he watched his two parents in the midst of a bitter divorce and custody battle.
Hall told authorities that her ex-husband told her he would 'kill the kids before he let her have them', the indictment alleges.On Wednesday, police released body camera footage of Redwine being arrested. The video shows police approach Redwine's truck with their guns drawn, giving instructions over a loudspeaker for him to leave the truck and get down on the ground, which he did.

Then Redwine, wearing a red T-shirt and a baseball cap, can be seen in the footage lying on his stomach with his hands by his head before police handcuff him.
A popular Queens barber was fatally shot during an apparent botched robbery while sitting in his car after leaving a restaurant, police said.

Zanu Simpson was shot around 12:15 a.m. as he sat in a BMW X5 SUV parked near the corner of South Conduit Avenue and Lansing Avenue in Springfield Gardens.

Simpson, who worked as a barber at Strickly Skillz Barbershop in Hollis, had just come out of Breezes Highland Bar & Grill with a woman before they said goodbye and he got into his vehicle.

After a few minutes, surveillance video shows a man in a gray sweatsuit enter the car through the passenger’s side door where the two got into a struggle as the robber tried to grab his property.

The thief got out of the car and ran around to the driver’s side window where he punched Simpson several more times as the struggle continued.

A female motorist who happened to be passing by saw the men fighting before hearing a shot.

When the driver turned her car around, she found Simpson slumped over in the seat and bleeding from the head.

Police found a Ruger pistol at the scene along with a single 9mm shell casing.

A police source said the killing is believed to be part of a string of robberies that have taken place outside the restaurant in recent months.

“We have a robbery pattern there, where the perps scope out potential victims inside that place,” said a police source referring to the restaurant.

“Customers coming out of this place are getting robbed.”

The source added that about five people have been robbed outside of Breezes Highland Bar & Grill since April.

Simpson also appeared to call out a supposed rival on Instagram just hours before his death, writing “n—s taking shots can’t stop me,” and “they ain’t real enough…”

But investigators do not believe the apparent taunts had anything to do with his death.

“It’s not linked to his Instagram or Facebook posting, as far as we know,” said the source. “It’s not that at all. This is just a straight-up robbery.”

Three-year-old twin boys drowned in their backyard pool Wednesday — after slipping out the back of their Long Island home while their mother was asleep, law enforcement officials said.

The boys’ mother woke up inside the home on Holly Court in Melville and did not see the two toddlers — who, according to NBC New York, were autistic — officials said.

The mother asked her 5-year-old son where the twins were, but he didn’t know, officials said.

Police outside the residence in Melville.

When she looked out the window, she saw one of the boys floating in the in-ground pool and pulled the child out and immediately performed CPR as she called 911 on speaker phone at about 8:40 a.m., according to police.

“She relays to the responding officers in the rescue personnel that she’s got another son that she doesn’t know where he is,” Suffolk County Police Department homicide Lt. Kevin Beyrer said at a press conference.

Medics and police officers jumped into the pool — which was “murky” and hard to navigate — and retrieved the other boy from the bottom, officials said.

Both children were rushed in critical condition to Plainview Hospital, where they both died a short time later at different times.

“Everything appears to be an accident,” Beyrer said, adding that the back yard and pool appeared to be up to code.

Officials said it’s unclear how the children got out of the house, where, according to sources, the family had moved in about two months ago.

The 5-year-old child was not harmed.

The four-bedroom, single-family home just sold last month for $890,000, records show.

Neighbors were stunned by the news.

“It’s a horrible tragedy,” neighbor Yoram Amiran said. “I know many people have great fun with pools and want pools when they have children, so I don’t judge. It’s horrible. It’s tragic.”

A Texas dentist was indicted Monday over a 2016 incident that left a 4-year-old pediatric patient with permanent brain damage. Dr. Bethanial Jefferson is accused of intentionally and knowingly by omission causing serious bodily injury to a child by failing to seek and provide adequate medical attention, the Houston Press reported.

Courissa Clark brought her daughter, Nevaeh Hall, to Jefferson’s office at Diamond Dental in Houston, in January 2016 to have a tooth pulled.  Clark said that Nevaeh was given too many sedatives and other drugs that caused a seizure and her oxygen levels to drop,Click 2houston Reported.

Jefferson allegedly placed Hall in a recovery room for hours before calling 911. The incident left Hall with severe brain damage that robbed her of her ability to walk, talk or see.

“To have a normal kid one day and then that’s taken away all of a sudden, it’s hard,” Clark told Click 2 Houston. “Her life was definitely taken away from her.”

Jefferson was suspended from practice by the Texas Board of Dental Examiners and on Tuesday, a judge issued a warrant for her arrest. The family’s attorney said an indictment should send a strong message to physicians across the country.

“It’s going to tell them, ‘You are going to be held accountable if you kill or maim our children,’” Jim Moriarty, who represented the family in a civil lawsuit,told Click 2 Houston.

In a shocking accidental incident, A girl, identified as Aditi Sanghi, was killed when she fell from the rooftop of the International College for Girls (ICG) building, her fall was filmed by classmates who had gathered with her to train in zip-lining and rope and mountain climbing.

The training was being conducted by the victim’s father in Mansarovar’s SFS area

The girl was taking part in rock climbing exercises being conducted at the college under the supervision of certified trainer who happens to be her father. The victim’s dad saw his daughter slip and fall from the building to her death in a matter of seconds.

Aditi Sanghi lost her balance at the edge of the terrace, said officials at the International College for Girls (ICG).

She was watching another student coming down the zip line when she plunged to her death.

Her father, Sunil Sanghi, is associated with a mountaineering academy in Jaipur and provides training at several colleges. She often accompanied him to these practice sessions.

*watch video*

“It is a six-storey building and she fell from the top. Her father said she had finished her round and was standing there watching when she suddenly fell. We are investigating what led to the death and how she fell, we will question other witnesses who were with her. It does not appear to be a case of suicide,” said Mukesh Chaudhary, a police officer handling the case.

The incident is a tragic accident & the college stands with family.

A Fox News host was ambushed while attending her pal’s campaign event in Brooklyn Monday night — doused head to toe with a bottle of water.

The assault against Kat Timpf, a libertarian co-host on “Fox News Specialists,” occurred at Union Pool in Williamsburg, where her friend and Brooklyn Borough president hopeful Ben Kissel was hosting the event, which coincided with his birthday.

A still shaken Timpf told The Post Tuesday ​that she was definitely targeted for the ​​attack.

“This was a pre-planned thing,” Timpf said. “Just to see someone look you in the eye with that kind of anger and hatred and whip water in your face … is a terrifying thought.”

Timpf said the man was silent ​as he tapped her on the shoulder, dumped water on her head and then splashed it into her eyes. She said the unprovoked incident forced her to cancel her speech at Kissel’s event about criminal justice reform and budget cuts.

“The way things have gotten, it’s just so sick,” she said. “I don’t even have a right to exist in public is how it feels.”

The 28-year-old commentator chronicled the “infantile bulls–t” in a fired up tweetstorm.

The unknown guy “walks in, clearly here because he knows I’m here, dumps an entire 1.5 liter bottle of water on me, first on my head and then I turn … to look and he splashes it directly on my face and runs out. I’m shocked, I’m stunned. I’m obviously upset. I end up not being able … to speak because of it,” Timpf wrote Monday night.

She went on to add, “I’ve never seen a more disgusting insane cruel climate than the one we’re in now. Why? What does that … accomplish? I guess I wasn’t able to speak so that’s great and I guess he wins, but we’re just randomly assaulting people in public now?”

The altercation was caught on security footage, which Timpf said has been turned over to police. She also filed a police report — but the assailant is still in the wind, she said on Twitter.

Police confirmed Timpf filed a harassment complaint Monday night. They described the creep, who said nothing when he attacked, as a 6’2 black male, about 170 lbs. with dreadlocks.

Meanwhile, Kissel, who hopes to unseat incumbent Eric Adams, tweeted support for his friend.

“Disgusted by the actions of an obvious lunatic at my campaign event. We can do better than this,” he wrote.

Timpf also got a boost from her Fox colleague Geraldo Rivera and CNN anchor Jake Tapper.

“Dude that blindsided @KatTimpf is a piece of s–t. Want to meet him someday,” Rivera tweeted.

Tapper wrote, “That is unacceptable and disgusting. I’m sorry you went thought that. He was a coward and a loser. Stay strong.”
