This site reckons people own their car for an average of 6 years...

https://www.autotrader.com/car-shopping/buying-a-car-how-long-can-you-expect-a-car-to-last-240725

I bought my used 107 in April 2012 and sold it in June 2015, then I bought my current used Smart in June 2015. Thinking of selling it in around 2020 as I want to get my moneys worth out of it.

mrs car 107 (08) for about 6mths maybe a little longer, due to c1 (56) wrote off while parked up just repaired it from a cat c as well owned it for 3 weeks .
i am always on the look out for another with less years for a good price so could own this one for another week or another year

Had our 107 for over 9 years now, and my sister had her 108 for 6 months, but her previous Ford Fiesta she owned for nearly 28 years, so she got her monies worth out of that car!

That is really a 1989 every day used car. What it’s like, what’s the mileage, lt looks too good, l know photos can lie, but what’s the point of that on here we’re a forum.

I would love to know were they get these numbers from, average 6 years...
what computer program are they using??....
For example... a man is happy a girl is happy they both have new cars. Oh dear they fall in love and have twins. That means 2 cars hit the bucket for a 2nd hand one, To cover the cost for the man staying at home looking after the baby’s because the wife earns more.
That must be the average..........

I get what you mean BB, the average is brought down by those forced to sell rather than want to sell. By the way this statistic was from research done by R.L. Polk

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/R.L._Polk_%26_Company

I must admit I've never heard of them.
