The top 10 has remained largely unchanged over the past three years, only reversing positions, or some new products appearing, but still Japanese cars.
Loyalty is something automakers still want constantly from customers. The fact that someone has kept a car of the same brand for many years shows the durability and reliability of the products, and also reflects the quality of its production.
In this respect, it seems that Toyota owners are the most loyal to the car they have bought, when kept and used for more than 15 years. Here are the research results of iSeeCars.com from analyzing more than 660,000 units of the 1981-2005 model year sold in 2020.
