    Default How long have you owned your car(s)?

    Random thread. I've been recently thinking about the four cars I've owned as I'm just about to turn 18. With that said, I haven't been able to keep a car for even a year, lol. How long have you guys owned your current cars?

    I've had my RSX for a little over two months and I intend on owning it until force parts our ways, solely because I'm tired of dealing with "the new car." I like my shoes well worn and adapted to my feet.

    well, I have owned my current car for less than 9 months, its a Honda Stream, I don't like staying with a car for more than one year, I prefer selling it for a small profit, then buying another second hand car.

    In a couple of weeks I'll "celebrate" 13 years of ownership of my Volvo 940 T5 (didn't have that engine when I bought it thou).

    The Benz however has only spent about 5 months with me.

    I owned my '85 Volvo 245DL for six years before selling it.
    The 1987 760 Turbo has been around for about four.
    The 1974 VW Superbeetle was my mom's car when I was a kid, she sold it and I bought it back about 3 years ago.
    And the 2009 VW Golf was bought a little under a year ago.

    I have a Range rover now, I have owned it for almost one year now, am regretting buying it though, it is a fuel guzzler, I prefer my old Honda.

    I'm 25 now. Have owned around 10 cars or so.

    A few of these stayed only a few weeks, most I kept for about a year. Only one I've kept noticeably longer so far has been my E36 Touring which I've owned since 2009 and I don't think I'll ever sell it.

    I have owned my car for the last 3 years now, it is a Prado, I want to replace at the end of this year with a Honda CRV, this time I plan on buying a new one from the showroom, not a second hand car.

    I've had my current s13 for almost 6 years. I actually had a Facebook memory today that today 4 years ago was the first time I drove it after doing the RHD and RB25 swap. Time flies!

    Bought my 1993 Camaro in March of 2012 as my first car, still have it to this day, so just shy of 7 years now.
