I think 30% of the trucks around here are cummins diesel and 60% of them have 200,000+ miles on them.
Texans can't afford new trucks?
If your observation is correct, 30% x 60% = 18% in your county.
Are you sure all 60% have 200K on them and not 175k?
Even if correct I expect the Total in big Texas cities with vehicles with less than 200k dilutes the Total % state wide. Then the other 49 states would dilute it again to the national average of 1.9% of work trucks on the road.

Pickup trucks are nearly twice as likely to reach the 200k milestone 1.9% vs 1% all vehicles. I'd guess that Texas would have a higher % percent of vehicles over 200k than other states dealing with rust from road salt ect.

I was surprised Dodge Ram 1.2% was below average for pickups.
I only listed the above average vehicles.

I put 330k on a Honda Accord that I spent very little on, sold it to a guy who used it on a mail route for two years and I seen it on the road recently. I have an old Honda CRV just around in my way that has over 300k and only real expense are timing belts installation. I have owned 9 Hondas and everyone of them easily paid for themselves. Everything else has been Fords an other than recalls have never been worked on at a garage or back to the dealer yet. I don't care much for the Civics.

Not sure what you mean about Texans not being able to afford new trucks. I’ve never met a rancher that had less than 2 trucks. Generally a newer one and an older one. I’ve got 3 on the pee wee ranch 😆. Used to be 3 Dodges now 3 Fords. Not sure the Fords will last though…. Well the ‘95 seems to be indestructible the ‘18 & 19 not so much. Lots and lots of old beat up Dodges running around this county.

We only have 1 vehicle under 200k... the rest range from ~215 to over 350k. #1 thing i look for upon purchase is reliability and recalls. What are the major repair cost for that specific model year etc.? We only buy used but we have a fleet of six.

A used Tahoe is pretty reasonable here. Any input on things to look for, or how they hold up?

For 99-06, transmissions primarily. They'll usually give up the ghost around 150-200k.

The engines are almost bullet proof. Oil pressure problems and lifter noise at higher mileage is common, usually the seal around the oil pickup drawing air.

Rust on the rockers is a big problem, as well as the fenders under the flares, and brake lines. Nothing new with GM there.

I have an 06 Silverado with 327k on it. It's had a transmission, one rear diff, needs a transfer case, but the engine is original. Has had a rear main and the oil pump seal like I mentioned earlier.

07+ had quite a few problems with the AFM/DOD nonsense that they put on them. Those are the models that switch between 4 and 8 cylinders.

I have 2 work cars. 2010 ford fusion with 212,000 miles and 2011 chev malibu with 275,000. both were purchased brand new. fusion was purchased with trade in during government's cash for clunkers deal and malibu was a hail damaged vehicle. both have paid for themselves and no major complaints about repairs.

I'm still driving a 2006 half ton Chevy that recently rolled over to 250,000. It still has the original engine and transmission, though I've done fairly extensive work on the front end twice. I think I've replaced the brake pads once, and when the radiator developed a leak last week my mechanic was astonished when he couldn't find any record of it having been replaced before. I'm pretty sure it was still the original one.

When I hear people saying "I wish they still made cars and trucks like they used to!" I reply "I'm glad they don't."

I have a 2002 Ford F250 with the power stroke that has 302,000 miles and a 2008 KIA Spectra with 274,000 miles. They are my drive every day vehicles. No serious issues with either one.
