MB takes the #1 spot at 90.1% of the cars bought 11-15 years ago are still on Canadian roads in 2000. BMW took #2 at 83.8%. industry average is 49.7%

sadly cars built back then had better build qualities... man, they were tanks... nowadays, with cost cutting and such... losing that. in 10-15 years i bet japanses cars on the road more... well let me qualify that... i think if lux cars on still on the road it is also because ppl drive them longer cuz they paid more for them, not as willing to let them go... just a theory
