I have also had the motorbike I passed my test on in 1996 since then and still have it now.

So:
Sierra 16 years
Motorbike 22 years
Ford Pop 46 years

And I can go back much further with the motorbikes my father owns, he has had one since 1960 and it is still on the road

the motorbike yeah, 'family owned since' doesn't win really, oh and the title states 'How long have you owned YOUR CAR so technically I'm still winning albeit by only a year

Morgan since 1992...seems like five minutes ago!

I seem to stick around the 10 year mark for some reason. If I like a car then I’ll just keep going with it.

In finding 10 years a rough time for electric failures. I don’t have a big annual mileage so for me dodgy electrics usually spells time to move on.

The Porsche has been with me for 11 and a half years now, and it’ll never be sold. The family bus gets changed whenever really. The previous XC70 was 3 years until I could persuade my wife out of it, the S40 before was about 2 years but the Freelander before that was 7-8 years, something like that. She’ll keep a car forever without encouragement! I plan on having the Audi until it turns 10, so we’ve 6.5 years to go! The Merc will probably do us 10 years as well.

I've had 6 daily driver cars in the last 6 years and 3 weekend/fun cars. In fairness that figure is slightly higher than it ought to be because I had to reject one of the daily cars due to it being faulty.

Current Leon - 5 months
Current Subaru - 13 months
