Toyota, Honda, Subaru owners most likely to keep their cars for at least 15 years

Not every car buyer adheres to short-term leases to flip into something new every 36 months. A new study shows the brands and cars owners were most likely to keep for at least 15 years, and three Japanese brands came out on top.

Toyota, Honda, and Subaru made up the entire list of cars owners were most likely to keep for 15 years, according to a study from iSeeCars. The organization analyzed over 750,000 used car sales throughout 2018 to see how many vehicles were sold as “original owner” vehicles. The model years sampled are from 1981-2003, to meet the 15-year or more ownership criteria.
