Used car-buying site iSeeCars.com . As you'd expect, most of the cars on this list come from manufacturers with a reputation for reliability—but there are one or two surprises.
No surprises here—the number one spot on the list goes to a Toyota, specifically, the Highlander SUV. According to iSeeCars.com, a whopping 18.5 percent of original owners keep their Highlanders for 15 years or more—2.5 times the average.
The second spot on the list goes to another Toyota, this time the Prius hybrid. While it might not be very popular among enthusiasts, good gas mileage and Toyota's stout reliability mean 16.2 percent of original owners hold onto their Prius for 15 years or more.
Spot number three goes to—you guessed it—another Toyota: The Sienna minivan. People seem to really like their Toyotas, I guess. A total of 16.1 percent of first owners keep their Siennas for 15 years or longer.
The Honda Pilot is the first non-Toyota vehicle to make an appearance, taking the number four spot. Also known for their reliability, this is the first of several Hondas on this list. First owners of Honda pilots keep their cars for 15 years- 15.3 percent of the time.
Number five is a return to Toyota form represented by the Tundra pickup truck. We aren't surprised to see something more utilitarian to appear on this list, and the fact that it's a Toyota is even less surprising. A total of 14.1 percent of first-time owners keep the Tundra for 15 years or longer.
The next car on the list is another Toyota (shocker), the Sequoia. In addition to making a good NASCAR truck tow vehicle, it can also move a family from one place to another easily. Out of all new owners, 13.5 percent of them keep their Sequoias for 15 years or more.
The Odyssey is the second Honda on this list, and the second minivan. We can definitely see new parents buying these and keeping them to use while their children grow up. Out of first owners, 12.6 percent of them hold onto the keys for more than 15 years.
The CR-V is Honda's flagship crossover, and it takes the number nine spot. It's evolved (and grown) a lot over the years into what you see above. First owners hold onto theirs 15 years or more 12.4 percent of the time.
The Forester is the only car on this list that isn't built by Toyota or Honda. It's one of Subaru's most popular models, and thanks to that reliability and standard all-wheel drive, people love to hold onto them. In fact, 12.1 percent of new owners keep theirs 15 or more years.
Did you think the rest of this list would go on without another Toyota? Well, you thought wrong. Number 11 is the RAV4, the company's mid-size crossover. Out of all first owners, 12.1 percent kept their cars for 15 years or more.
Nowadays, you can get the Camry with a 300+ horsepower V6 engine, which is pretty cool. Despite having a reputation for not being very exciting, new owners seem to like holding on to them. A total of 11.5 percent hold onto their Camrys for 15 years or longer.
The MDX (which can now be had in sporty A-Spec trim) is the only luxury-branded car on this list. But that Honda dependability still shines through. Out of all buyers, 11.4 percent of them keep the MDX for more than 15 years.
The 4Runner is another Toyota SUV, this time with a meaner face and more off-road prowess. According to iSeeCars.com, 11.2 percent of first owners elect to keep their 4Runners 15 years or more.
The Avalon sedan and its massive grille round out the top 15, with a total of 10.8 percent of first owners keeping their cars for 15 or more years. It's the tenth (!) Toyota on this list, and the third sedan.
