Cars and People: I have noticed that we are pretty attached to our vehicles. Most individuals in southern California will keep a car 12 years. The national average is 8 years. It is suggested that 8 – 10 years is a pretty good time for a trade in. A person usually saves money by maintaining a used vehicle over purchasing a new one.
Although, after 20 years the return on investment based on repairs may begin to dwindle. In addition, safety and reliability might become concerns as well. California’s mild climate contributes greatly for owners to keep cars on the road longer, even though we post the most total miles per year.
The Toyota Camry is still the #1 seller in the country. California approved a measure which requires all new cars sold to generate zero tailpipe emissions by 2035.
