11 year old Honda. Six year old Volvo. 17/2= 8.5
Two year old Honda, six year old Toyota. So the average is 4.
My Forester is 8 and my FH's Outback is 9.
Oops. Forgot to average.
The average is 8.5 years.
18 yr old Honda Civic. Two yr old Nissan Rogue. 20/2 = 10
Please do the math. My brain is sort of lazy today.
A 1997 Chrysler New Yorker and 2007 Chrysler Town & Country van, so that makes the average age 9 years.
I only have one car and it's a 12 year old Honda Civic that I'm not getting rid of any time soon. Actually, I'm fairly certain I'll finally get around to buying a new car as soon as my oldest son starts driving...then he can get my Civic and I'll drive the new one.
2007 Toyota Rav4. It is 4 years old...average=4
5.5 years old
A 6 year old Tahoe and a 4 year old Frontier. Average=5.
3+6+21+21 = 12.75.
And if I only do the 2 cars we drive every day - 3+21 = 12.
14 yr. old Sable
6 yr. old Ford 500
2 yr. old Mariner (we just got it about a month ago, traded the 5 yr. old Expedition)
Average age =11 years
14 year old Subaru
4 year old Kia
Average age: 7 years.
Average = 1 year
5 year old Jeep, 4 year old Toyota Sequoia. (DH has a work van, we don't actually own that). 4.5
1 year, + 2 year + 3/12 + 4 + 6 = 13.25
average = 2.65
9 year old dodge neon and 4 year old toyota highlander = 13
****....just hit me how old are cars are - no wonder it seems they are never all working at the same time...these are family cars...
1980 something Landrover
1990 something Ford truck
2004? Ford truck
3 year old Honda Civic (mine - just paid of Friday! I was tired of character :lol
Plus side - no car payments, character???
Down side - work, reliability
7 year old Ford Taurus and 7 year old Ford Focus, so the average is 7 years. Both are paid off!!!!!
2002 Odyssey just crossed the 100K milestone! Still going strong...
2005 Corolla XRS
9 + 6 = 15
15 / 2 = 7.5 years
12 year old Forester
3 year old Civic
12 year old Honda Civic
3 year old Toyota Camry
But I did go look at Priuses today (which, are apparently hard to find around here because of the tsunami in Japan) to replace my faithful Civic!
1999 Chevrolet Silverado
2003 Saturn Ion
2006 Saturn Vue
2008 Mazada Tribute
2010 Nissan Frontier
Average= 5.8 years
4 year old Dodge Ram
7 year old Honda Accord
Average=5.5 years old
I buy new and drive them a long time.
My parents bought me a 1986 Oldsmobile for my 16th birthday. I drove it for 10 years. Mom was in the market for a replacement for her 1978 Cadillac, so I traded cars with her. She drove my 1986 until 2007. It had less than 100,000 miles on it at age 21 years old. We only sold it because she didn't drive anymore, and I didn't need two cars.
I bought a new 1996 Monte Carlo. I drove it until 2009. I sold it to my cousin because I had inherited my Dad's 5-month old truck. My cousin loves it and drives it every day. It had 105,000 miles when she bought it.
Now I have a 2008 F-150. My dad was in a wreck and totalled his 1997 F-150 in August of 2008. In September of 2008, he bought the 2008 F-150. Two weeks later--in October--he was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. He only got to drive it for a little over our months until he was too sick to drive. He told me to take it because Mom didn't drive, and she needed someone to help her out. I've already put 20,000 miles on it, which is more than any vehicle I've had for its age because DH and I have been sharing more than usual.
DH had a 1995 Grand Cherokee that he totaled in 2007. He bought a 1998 Grand Cherokee (only one bought used) that he just sold a couple of months ago. It was high miles and starting to be a money pit. We're going to buy him a new car in the next couple of weeks. He's trying to decide if he wants a Kia Sorento, Jeep Patriot, or Ford Escape. The 2012 Kia's are out already, but it would still be 2011 for the other two.
I think we average about 12 years.
2005 Saturn, 2005 Ford, 2007 Chevy = 5.3
I have a 2010 Harley Street Bob and a 2002 Dodge Neon. Priorities!
Actually, the Neon has been the perfect car. Other than routine maintenancem nothing ever goes wrong with it.
I have a 2003 Dodge Neon, it is my only vehicle. I am looking to trade it off next summer for a newer car. I haven't had any issues with it other than routine maintenance, but I am moving to a more rural area next month and am considering something a little larger/possibly AWD.
So my average right now would be 8 years old.
2006 Mercedes Convertible and 1993 BMW Convertible and a 1999 Escalade<--- We call her 'ole dependable!
DH has a cousin who trades cars every six months. I'd forget what I was driving if I traded cars that often!
Average six years, although my husband will need a new car soon as it's a little older and in rough shape.
Umm, I "lose" cars all the time because I can't remember what I was driving. Oh, wait a minute, I lose my car all the time. I park in the same general area any time I go anywhere, including work.
I drive a 2008 Saturn. My late husband's truck is about a 92 but I have not driven it since 8-8-2008. I think the tractor is a 98.
I only drive the Saturn so I'm going to call my average 3 years.
1998 Toyota Avalon
2000 Dodge Ram
Average - 12 years
(but DH has a 1960something truck... so I could add that in and really through off my average!!!)
My goal for my next vehicle is that it should be younger than my 2nd graders!
I have one car that is one year old, so an average of one year.
Just to keep things interesting I'll do it for the cars that my parents have. My mom has a 2010 Escape and then my dad has a 1925 Model T, a 1930 Model A, a 1951 F-1 and a 1952 F-6. So (1+86+81+60+59)/5=57.4 years old.
If we use all of the vehicles at my house:
2004 Dodge Ram
2011 Dodge Journey
2003 Dodge Ram
2003 Dodge Neon
I have a 11 year old Nissan Frontier.
I have a 1990 toyota camry.
