What's Your Car's Name? 51% Say Their Vehicle Is...

It seems cars aren’t just a way to get from point A to point B. They also hold a special place in our hearts — and driveways! Fifty-one percent of Americans consider their car to be “part of the family,” according to a new survey.

The poll of 2,000 car owners also reveals that 53 percent would keep their current car forever if given the option. For some, this is due to an emotional attachment (22%), while others simply have fond memories of their current cars (24%). There are also more practical reasons why Americans want to keep their current cars. Almost six in 10 say it’s because of the reliability (58%) their car has given them, and 45 percent say it’s due to the good gas mileage they’re able to get.

From a financial perspective, the majority of drivers surveyed (80%) say they are likely to hold on to their car for as long as possible if they feel it will save them money in the long run. Others admit that their car needs an upgrade now, but they are unable to afford one due to financial constraints (46%).
