New study finds millennials are most attached to their cars, most likely to “name” them

BIRMINGHAM, Ala (CNN) — While the U.S. is often called a “car culture,” a new study finds millennials are most attached to their cars.

A study done by E-Bay Motors found that the 20 somethings were more likely to keep them car longer and develop some type of “emotional attachment” to them.

Up to 40% of millennials reported “naming” their cars. Some popular names included “Betsy,” “Bob,” “Baby,” and “Buddy.”

Millennials are also particular about the colors of their cars, choosing red, silver, and blue most often.

All age groups, the study also found, are doing small repairs to their cars on their own, instead of going straight to the mechanic.
