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?
I didn't buy my last pickup new - it was a couple of years old - but I drove it for 22 years before replacing it. I keep most cars around 10 years.
I bought my Honda Accord new in 2004. It just passed 200,000 miles.
At the current mileage rate, and the fact it's a Honda, it actually might be the last car I ever drive.
My car is 11 years old, in great shape. Only spent$1100 other than normal maintenance. I used to trade every two years until I paid one off instead and realized how nice it was to not have a car payment each month.
I've owned my current car (a 2013 Ford Focus) for about four weeks.
I bought my 2006 Mazda in 2009 and recently rang the manufacturer because my dash has been on a slow but steady decline the past few years. Its melted. Yep— it’s hot where I live but I would expect my car to not melt hahahaha— I’ve only spent money on tyres and general tune ups, plus insurance. No more than average $500 a year at a guess. I did replace my gear stick knob last year but sourced it second hand and saved about $300. Oh and an updated navigator chip which was my most expensive buy at $300. I’m not a good navigator though so it was essential.
I have just on 90000 k’s on it. Its going well I guess despite the dash which will be replaced free of charge in April as turns out it’s a defect. Phew.
