The car aftermarket is an extremely lively place. Many car models change their owners several times over a relatively short (by automotive standards) period of 5 years. Domestic experts have chosen the most popular models on the Russian market and found out how long they stay with the owners. It turned out that some cars literally jump from hand to hand.
It's good when the car had one responsible owner for a long time. It is not very good when the car jumps from hand to hand. The risk of getting such a machine to an irresponsible person is growing rapidly. It is even worse when such a model falls into the hands of a "private trader", for example, in the sphere of freight or passenger transportation. At the same time, each buyer in the secondary market is interested in the fact that the car that fell into his hands was as less "worn out" as possible. To make the right choice in favor of this or that model will help, including knowing the statistics of the average duration of car ownership alone by the owner.
To generate statistics, domestic experts selected the most popular cars, after which they selected cars that most often change their owners for one reason or another. The charts were compiled in the context of two time frames: the number of owners in 10 years and the number of owners in 15 years. As a result, both budget models of cars and luxurious expensive foreign cars were included in the rating.
Statistics have shown that the owners are most actively changing cars of premium models. Cars of the middle and budget price segment are kept in the hands of their buyers for a long time. However, there are exceptions here as well. Lada Granta turned out to be the most "handy" budget model. It is changed every few years. For comparison, Russians hold Kia Rio and Hyundai Solaris for 3 and 9 years, respectively, on average. In addition, Volkswagen Golf R, Mercedes-Benz CL, Land Rover Range Rover Sport were included in the rating of frequently changed cars. Not far from dozens of anti-leaders left Audi A7, Mercedes-Benz CLS, C-Class, Lexus IS Porsche Panamera. All these machines are kept in hand for 1.5 to 3 years.
