Bet that 49 caddy was sweetMy Murano was purchased in July 2004 and traded in March 2012, just a few months shy of 8 years. I usually keep my cars for seven years, it appears!
A 1949 Cadillac and 1957 DKW were the longest kept in the family as hand me downs. Both were sold in 1985.
I never buy brand new either. Usually I get a car at least 5 years old. After its broken in and around the time licensing fees start to drop. When I get my cars, they usually have between 80-95k on them.I kept my 97 Maxima 5 speed for 7 yrs until I got my 03 Maxima, which I traded in for the 2010 Murano. I found that I tend to buy cars that are 2 to 3 years old. My last 3 had an average of around 36k miles on them at the time of purchase.
