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'm on my fourth:
First car: 1994 Chevy Cavalier (man, I miss that car)
then a 2002 Dodge Stratus
1999 Jeep Cherokee
2005 Nissan Frontier (pickup)
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,

So I have a '92 t-bird and a 2006 taurus, both fords. I actually like the t-bird better than the taurus, except for the fact that the t-bird is in need of another transmission. I lost the overdrive while merging onto the freeway during busy hour, mileage was just barely 138,000...

How often should I trade in my car, or vehicle, for a new one?Factors like depreciation, balance on the loan and condition are part of this.

I bought a new Honda crv in 2003 and still drive it.I have only spent $2000 for normal maintenance, not counting tires. I see many people in my town driving older cars and wonder how long people on here have owned and drive their car that they bought new?
