I usually keep car for 2-3 years - 90% of the time, and 3-4 years - 10% of the time if car is too good and Im facing difficulty in buying my next car.

I think I am the only one to vote for 1-2 years here, lol.

I change car every year, if car is too good then max 2 years.

Well here when cars, fuel, reg, insurance are so cheap to own unlike other expensive countries I don't think anyone want to stick to 10 years with single ride. I drive two cars: my daily commute I change in 1-2 years and weekend offroad ride 4-5 years tops.

Well, I keep my car as long as it's under warranty. As I drive a German car, I'm just too scared to keep it beyond that. I actually buy extended warranties, but still only manage to keep the car for 3-4 years.

This is indeed a question that I keep asking myself when I see a new ride that I want to get, but keep putting it off due to the following reasons and hence I have had both my cars for almost 6 years now. I am curious to know people's view on this.

One is a Pajero and the other is an S class. The S class had extended warranty until last year..

Both have run approx 85,000 kms in 6 years. I dont drive long distances for my daily commute so the Merc is my car of choice. I only use the Pajero if i have to carry around a lot of stuff and people!

If i were to try and sell either car, I would get miserable resale values and that kills me after having spent so much money to buy it and so I figure I can keep both of them as long as it doesnt come up with major repairs and so far, neither of the cars have had expensive repairs.

So what does everyone think?

Keep the cars for as long as possible? I mean arent S class's meant to keep on going?

I think many here do the smart move of keeping the car under warranty and upgrade to new ones once warranty finishes. I can see the overall poll has settle for 3-4 years now.
