Owners Keep Their Corvettes Longer

August 16, 2018 0 By Laura
ISeeCars.Com has done a study and found that Corvette buyers love their cars so much that they keep them an average of 9 years. This ranks the Corvette as #2 among 15.7 million used cars sold by their original owners.

Top 10 New Cars Owners Keep the Longest
1 – Ford Expedition, 9.0 Years
2 – Chevrolet Corvette, 9.0 Years
3 – Toyota Sequoia, 8.9 Years
4 – Toyota 4Runner, 8.8 Years
5 – Toyota Avalon, 8.6 Years
6 – Ford Explorer, 8.4 Years
7 – Chevrolet Suburban, 8.4 Years
8 – Honda Accord, 8.3 Years
9 – Ford Taurus. 8.3 Years
10 – Honda Odyssey, 8.3 Years

It also turns out that Corvette Drivers tend not to use their cars as much as the average car. In fact, owners of the Corvette convertible drove their cars less than any other car. The Convertible drivers only drove an average of 4,365 miles a year!
