If you have ever financed a car, you know that there is an immense amount of freedom when you pay it off. Unfortunately, not every vehicle lasts much longer than the pay off date- not every vehicle can go the distance. If you’re looking into purchasing a car soon and plan on keeping it a long time, check out this awesome survey from Iseecars.com that breaks down the most popular cars that owners tend to keep for over 15 years.
To get this data, Iseecars.com observed and analyzed over 650,000 used cars from 1981-2002, sold between January through November 2017. For each model, the number of cars sold by the original owner was expressed as a percentage of the total number of cars sold. “Original-owner” cars were bought as new by the owner. The models were then ranked by the original-owner percentage.
As you can see, Toyota pretty much dominates the list with Honda and Acura in close pursuit. This is really not that surprising, as all brands focus on building quality, and efficient cars for an affordable price. Another thing that can be seen from this list is that almost all brands are made by Japanese manufactures- minus the VW Golf. There are no U.S. brands here, though of course some of these models are made in America.
The next time you’re car shopping, remember brand new doesn’t mean everything. If you buy a great quality car pre loved, then you’ll be saving money in the long run! Here at Drive Casa, we have almost all the models listed above in our inventory right now! Most are only a couple years old! So what are you waiting for? Click here to search our inventory!
