Peugeot Study Reveals Obvious Facts About Men, Women and Cars

A recent study conducted by Peugeot in the UK came with this very nice picture of an RCZ coupe and some insightful information. 2,000 people were polled, and 50 percent of the men said its simpler to maintain a car than their significant other. What’s more, 1 in 10 said they loved cars more than their current partner, and the rest probably were scared to admit it.
“We’ve long known that the British are a nation of petrolheads but by the looks of things, the balance can often tip a little in the wrong direction. And car lovers should be mindful of their partner's feelings. It seems that the pleasure we derive from our cars is one that we have greatly underestimated. It’s incredibly surprising to think such pleasure sometimes surpasses the enjoyment a car owner derives from their partner!" said Dr Pam Spurr, who collaborated with Peugeot on the study.

Here are some countrywide finds:
• 50% of men admit they find their partner is more difficult to maintain than their car
• 17% of Brits spend more on their car than their other half
• 13% of respondents have been with their car longer than their partner
• 14% of people think a sporty car will help them get the girl or boy of their dreams
• Millions of us potentially spend more time with our cars than our partners (9% of the population in fact) and 8% of us would choose our car over our partner
