Did you know that the average age of everyone’s vehicles is rising? Nancy explains the reasoning behind it and what you have to do to keep your car running like new.
How old is your vehicle? Did you know the average age of vehicles in the United States is almost 12-years-old and 11.6-years-old for those light trucks.
Now that’s according to carscoops.com.
So to give you some perspective, in 2009, the average age of a vehicle owned in the United States was 10.3-years-old.
So as time goes on, our vehicles are getting older and so are we. This change is due to the fact that the vehicles are more comfortable and have more features, and most importantly, last longer.
If your vehicle has 100,000 miles on it, it’s considered a baby.
Well, then that makes mine an old lady because she has over 200,000 miles on her.
We here at Kneble’s Auto Service Center have seen vehicles reaching 400,000 miles. Periodic maintenance, that’s the key to keeping your vehicle longer.
Check out my video on how scheduled maintenance is important.
We’re expected to see the impact of coronavirus will have in the next four to six months and moving forward regarding the age of the vehicle, as it will increase.
Since millions of people are working from home and traveling less, it’s expected that consumers, they’re going to hold off buying a vehicle, or they’re going to decide to purchase a used vehicle instead.
Remember, check out my video on what to look for when purchasing a used vehicle.
So long story short, our vehicles are getting older, like we are.
