Are you car-compatible with your partner?

  • 16 days ago
One in four Americans consider themselves “car-incompatible” with their spouses or partners, and a new study has found that 10% of men would consider it a dealbreaker if they weren’t “car-compatible.”

The poll of 2,000 married or cohabitating car drivers found that 25% are incompatible with how they treat vehicles — meaning they have different ideas on how to use and treat what they drive.

Forty-five percent of couples admit they argue over a shared vehicle, and 28% have gotten into disagreements and arguments specifically over how the car’s settings are adjusted.

Commissioned by Mazda for its Driver Personalization System and conducted by Talker Research, the study found the average couple shares a vehicle eight times per month.
