STUDY: 40% Of Millenials Name Their Car.

So, it turns out Americans are quite attached to their cars — and that love has been passed down to Millennials. Millennial or not…do YOU have a name for your car?

An eBay Motors survey found that Americans who own a vehicle that is more than five years old become emotionally attached, and that personal investment includes being on a first-name basis with their aging cars or trucks.

That’s especially true for the Millennial generation, which show the strongest emotional attachment to their vehicles compared to other generations. Nearly 40% of Millennials name their cars, compared to only 25% for all age groups, according to the report.

The most popular car names include Baby, Bessie, Bob, and Buddy. Car colors are also a common given name for a vehicle, including Red, Silver, and Blue.
