We are told by whoever THEY are who keep track of this stuff that cars are
currently kept an average of 11 years in the US.
I, like you, have two "bought new" cars that I've had longer than 11 years.
Both are Blazers, one is a '96 and the other is an '01. The '96 typically
gets a rest in the summer months when I'm having fun putting about 6 to
8,000 (combined) on my two Corvairs. The wife is the main driver on the '01
and me on the '96. The '01 is catching the '96 on miles as it is at ~
143,000 and the '96 at 172,000.
So, I don't know what factors (wrecked cars? - other things?) are calculated
into that 11 year number, but it is the guideline I had in mind when I said
10 to 15 years.
