My family keeps their cars for 10+ years. Or until it gets too costly to maintain and keep in running condition.

1994 Taurus GL with 164 000 km on it - solid car but tranny went last year. We had a used one put in and it is acting up again. Not to mention the rust that is starting to form on it, probably junk it once another major repair is needed.

1998 Chevy Malibu with 120 000 km on it - pretty solid, no major problems (knock on wood). Hopefully last a few more years.

1990 Toyota Corolla

Only got 117k on it. The starter is going though, also the exhaust needs some welding but all in all a good car
