 How often do you buy a new car?

I still mount up here in these parts. Nothing better than a trusty horse. No gas lines - just gotta watch when you step.


It is what it is.............and.........these things too shall pass.

 I try to keep my car as long as I can.I've had my current car for 2 1/2 years now.Hopefully, I will be able to keep it running very well for at least 13 1/2 more years. 


God bless you and have a nice day.

klamm 143. I like your idea.You don't have to go to the mechanic every 3000-10,000 miles to change your oil.


God bless you and have a nice day.

 I keep mine till it becomes more cost effective to buy another car rather than maintain the current one.  I had a 95 caravan 6 years until I had to put more money into fixing it than it's resale value.  I now have an 09 that I've had for 3 years (bought in '10) and will probably continue to drive it until the engine starts pouring out smoke (which may not be long because it's a Ford and has been falling apart at a rapid speed no matter how much care I put into it).

My 'low' milage car has a little over 190,000, my other one has a little over 205,000.  Both have been paid for for years, I'll drive them until they die or I do.

I've wondered that myself, but the people I hear talk about these things a lot also mention these things called "vacation homes".

 If you take good care of your car and service it when it is due, it will last a long, long  time.  Buying a car evey 3-5 years is a waste of money.

Well, let's see...


My split window '63 Corvette doesn't get driven much. I would say I would sell it once maybe, in the future, 25 years away. Or just give it to the kids and they can turn around and by a couple of houses.


The'69 Charge R/T is another long in the tooth vehicle3. Yeah, that might end up in Barrett-Jackson. 15 years.


The Yugo I can't sell. It holds down the corner of my tent. (I ran out of pegs.)


The Ferrari 'California T' get a run down the coast on sunny days but mostly stay in the 'barn'.


The VW needs to go but it's a fun grocery car.


My GMC Sierra is a daily driver. That one I will sell in 5-6 years.


The wife's ES350 is a daily driver and I would get beat up if I sold it.


Did I answer your question, pancake? Oh, you meant frequency in buying, not selling. Sorry.....

I have an 09 with fewer than 60K mi. If a vehicle is well maintained it should last a long time. Besides who likes car payments anyway?

HijoDeDiosMRM says: I like the way that you mistyped the model of your car. I think that you accidentally typed Ford Exploder instead of Ford Explorer. I used to have a Ford Escort. Exploder would have been a good name for that car. That's exactly what happened to it.
