2017 TRD PRO 4Runner - 189 miles. Took delivery 2 months ago. Paid cash.
2016 JK Hardrock Rubicon Wrangler-3028 miles. Paid off loan VERY early.
2012 Harley Davidson Roadking-5027 miles. Another Toy. Own free and clear.

Just sold my 2005 Subaru Outback XT-99000 miles on it on Craigslist.
I miss my SUBI but it was time to say goodbye after 12 years.

I usually own my vehicles around 10 years just like every other millionaire next door.

2004 Subaru Forester XT. About to hit 100,000. Trying to decide if I want to trade it in for a new one or buy a better gas mileage vehicle and keep the Forester for snow and ice only.

02 PU bought new. 05 Jeep bought used. Both around 150k miles. Usually try real hard for 200k. DW will most likely force a new vehicle when the Jeep hits 200k. Our yrly vehicle registrations are our state tax basically and ridiculously HIGH! Really torques me off so the PU is gonna go as long as I can keep applying duct tape!

2015 Honda CRV AWD bought in 2015 to replace the 2004 Honda CRV AWD that we gave\sold to our daughter. We did not finance it. DD is still driving the '04 as her every day vehicle.

2002 Ford F150. Has 130K original miles on it. Bought it in 2008 with 60K on it.

So both vehicles paid for

As mentioned, I just ordered a new 2017 BMW 330i TT for my next lease (3 years). I will be 66 when the new lease runs out. I really like diesels but there was not much of a choice this time round, and the ones that are, did not fit my liking or budget ($5k per year Lease all in). As some of you may know I am a great leasing advocate and have leased for as long as I can remember.

HOWEVER, this Leopard "may" do a spot change in October 2020/1. (If I am still around) As diesels are getting somewhat Passé, I may go for a 4 - 5 year old Mercedes E250 Bluetec next time and (Break down and) buy it. I have had 2 Bluetec diesels so far and loved them. (Leasing is a great way to try out cars you are not sure of). The Mercedes diesel engine will last basically forever and other than cloudy headlights, I do not see a negative. I also figure (Hope) that by 2021 they may even be more out of favor, and hence a bargain. I will actually start looking 1 year before my new lease runs out to get a good handle on the market. It could possibly be my last car.

My newest vehicle is a 10 year old Lincoln Town Car an older relative finally agreed to part with.

I plan on keeping it for at least another decade.

It's like driving a La-Z-Boy down the road...

All our other vehicles are older (some by a decade) than the above.

My first car was a 1989 Ford Thunderbird that my parents bought me in college. I drove it until the engine burned out in 2002. Then I bought myself a new 2002 Camry LE V6. I wanted something that would last. It still runs great.

Currently, a 2016 Honda Accord, which I plan on having 10 years.

Before, cars were an indulgence and I had a 2012 Audi A6 and before that a 2008 Lexus GS50.

Audi "cured" me of indulging in cars. It was fast, but how often can you drive 120mph to or from the office? On the other hand, maintenance on that car was astronomical no matter how or when I drove it.
