Average age of car buyers.

Not going so well.

I saw a 101 year old buy a new Camaro SS, so is that an old man car?

Wow, I thought the youngest age would be about 35, not 47!

I'm surprised how young Audi drivers are given that they've positioned themselves as MB wannabee's, especially with their steep pricing & *****-poor support on leasing terms. And are Subaru buyers really the same age as those who purchase Toyotas?

I've never understood all the fuss over median purchaser age. I know it's a marketing kiss of death, but the median age will always be a bit on the older side (even Mazda was 47) as the young don't buy as many cars. Who really cares if Buick's is 61? I understand their customer is more likely to die off and they don't sell Buicks in Heaven, so the General has a problem with that, but as long as there's new senior citizens to replace the dead customers, it shouldn't be a problem. Automakers spend zillions of dollars to attract a younger buyer and it blows up in their face, like Scion. Half the Scions I see (not that I see all that many in SE MI) are driven by senior citizens.

Yes, it's for 2009. That's the last full year of available data.

And your link is broken.

The link worked for me, although it doesn't really mention any age brackets in it. It's also a GM article, so they would tend to be pretty upbeat.

Where's Aston Martin in that list???

I was talking yesterday to the salesman about trading my Jaguar in for this:

Sorry for the poor quality, I snapped those with my cellphone.
