American Vehicles Living Longer Than Ever

American Vehicles Living Longer Than Ever
WESTLAND, Mich. - The Polk research firm has evaluated state registration data and discovered that American's vehicles are living longer than ever. In January of this year, the average age of the 247 millions cars and trucks in America hit an all-time high of 11.4 years.

With American's vehicles living longer than ever, there has been a drastic decrease in the amount of cars sent to the junk yard - about a 50% decrease to be exact. The data also revealed that the average life of a vehicle has increased from the 9.7 year life span of a decade ago.

The reason that vehicles are lasting longer is simply because they are of a higher quality than the vehicles of the past. New technology continues to improve cars and trucks, allowing them to perform more efficiently and last longer. Cars are not rusting out as they did in the past, and engines are continually improving and performing better - all of these improvements combined gives you a vehicle that you can rely on for years to come.

The Polk research firm believes that the percentage of cars age 12 or older will continue to rise in the next five years, simply because of the continuous improvements that are being made to vehicles. The amount of vehicles on the road will also increase as well, as 260 millions cars are expected to be on the road by 2018 - when the population of America will hit about 335.4 million.
