NEWS: These are your one-owner barn finds for 2028

A new study has revealed which cars are bought new and kept by their original owners the longest. So, if you’re looking for a well-preserved one-owner car in 2028, this is what you’re likely to find. The good news is, all but one on the top 15 list is Japanese, with Toyota comprising a full two-thirds of it. There is, however, some bad news.

The list, compiled by research firm ISeeCars, shows that the people who keep their cars for 15 years or more absolutely love crossovers, minivans, and trucks. If you simply adore the first-gen Toyota Highlander then you’re in luck. Personally, I might pick up a 2017 Sienna SE with the quick-shifting 8-speed automatic in 2042. Hopefully, there’s some Forester X/T turbos in to be barn found as well. Trucks like the Tundra, Tacoma, and Frontier will always have some semblance of cool, but the rest of the list isn’t exactly awe-inspiring.

  1. Toyota Highlander
  2. Toyota Sienna
  3. Toyota Tundra
  4. Toyota Prius
  5. Toyota RAV4
  6. Honda Odyssey
  7. Toyota Sequoia
  8. Toyota Tacoma
  9. Honda CR-V
  10. Toyota Avalon
  11. Acura MDX
  12. Toyota Camry
  13. Subaru Forester
  14. Nissan Frontier
  15. Volkswagen Golf


However, it makes sense that popular selling models would rank at the top of the list. Perhaps ISeeCars should compile a different list, one that ranks the top 15 cars whose original owners keep them for 15-plus years as a percentage of how many were actually sold. That would turn a survey of cold, hard stats into a show of how beloved those cars really are.
