The wife usually every 4-5 years.
Mine usually go 5-6 or until they die or one of my kids needs a vehicle.

I've had my current car for 11 years. Not planning to dump it unless major repairs come knocking.

When something catastrophic happens. Like the camshaft breaking in my Santa Fe after only 300,000 miles. LOL

On a G? On a guess? I'm guessing. I have sold only 2 running cars. Back when I was into Bugs, 5 yrs was a mile stone. I had good stuff that would get installed on several bodies. Same with Grand Wagoneers. Their last drive was to my parts dept behind the shop.After 20 yrs of 528e s I.m parting them out,all but for 2 that will be a hotrod and parts.This yr, I bought his 'n hers Camrys.

Im 42 and since I was 16 I have had only 5 vehicles. The last one was the only one I bought new....it is 5 yrs old this year and I do want a truck. The only reason I got the new car was to get rid of a 2003 Yukon which was my favorite vehicle I have ever had. I got rid of it due to 11 to 13 mpg and gas prices at the time were really high. So now I want a truck again. smile I just need to figure out which one.

6-7-13 (ish) years between bites now at a guess.

I have had about 25 vehicles since 1964. Since I am 70 this Pilot may be my last. Maybe. And the vehicles don't include motorcycles I have owned.

We typically keep a bought new car for at least twelve years and sometimes longer.
They'll remain fully functional for that length of time as long as reasonable maintenance gets done and you fix the minor stuff that breaks.
The only way to get your money out of any car is to keep it and use it.
Those who have to drive newer should look at leases, which are often a very good deal for folks who don't want to deal with the maintenance and minor repairs and replacements of wear parts inherent to an aging car.
A lot of this has to do with one's DIY ability and willingness.

I don't have a set schedule. I'm 23 and have had 5 different daily drivers now, the Jeep I don't count. The Camry is in hibernation. Hopefully I keep the Sonata for quite a while.

C'mon-this is BITOG where old cars come to die........and those of us that buy new cars are chastised (more often than not) for spending our money-on "ridiculously priced new vehicles"

And if you lease them-then the jealously REALLY COMES OUT.
