    How many cars have you owned in your lifetime?

    Most people have owned at least 5 cars when they reach 60 years and many trade them in every year. How many have you owned in your lifetime?

    I'm right on track, then. I've owned five:
    * Datsun B210
    * Ford Mustang
    * Ford Fairmont
    * Ford Ranger
    * Ford Ranger

    Yes, I've owned two Rangers. Both black. One was a short cab, and the one I have now is an extended cab. I intend to drive it until it falls apart in the middle of the road, because Ford has discontinued Rangers in the US.

      I haven't really had a "worst," but my favorite would be the Cavalier.

    I am hitting the half century mark in a couple of months.  I try to make my cars last as long as possible.

    My first car was a Mercury Marquis (think i was a 85 and got it in 1992)-had to replace the motor on it because I was inexperienced and drove it with a blown head gasket.

    When I got a lot of miles on it my husband took over that car and gave me his Oldsmobile Cavalier because it was in better shape and I had a long commute

    When I got about 160000 miles on it started having transmission problems and traded it in.  Plus I found that with 4 cylinder cars the engines do not last.

    Next car in 1997 was a 1993 Ford Taurus-retired that after 280,000 miles.  Many mechanical problems during the life of this car.  Ford+ Found on Road Dead and Fix Or Repair Daily.

    In 2003 got a 2001 Chevy Blazer.  Had to retire it at 310,000 miles because the check engine light wouldn't got out.

    In 2010 got a 2000 Chevy Malibu, when it reached 250,000 miles gave it to my daughter (I bought this used at 100,000 miles).  I really can't complain, Sandy-as my daughter calls it-has some issues but I can't complain about a car that is over 15 years old.

    2014 got a 2013 Chevy Impala.

    So I have just over 10 years to go before I hit 60 and I foresee that I will have at least 2 more cars before I retire.  Will stick to Chevy,

      A lot of it is highway mileage and I hear that there is less wear and tear on the engine
