I think the average age may be getting younger but in my area, there are still a lot more older people driving them.
I was in my early 30's when I got mine. I bought it because I wanted something different from my last car, which was a 1993 Cavalier. So this was pretty much on the opposite side of the spectrum. My other option was an SUV or pickup truck, which was a little less practical.
Practical, did I just say that???
Man, I'm already starting to sound older. LOL
