Half of the asked car owners took more than 10 thousand kms with car in 2010,this year only 44 percent of them do the same.In 2010 the drivers of the capital drove the most,in 2012 the rural residents make more kms by car.
Men travel by car more than women, and as appropriate, people with better backgrounds more than those with less incomes.
The about five year old cars are used the most but there are many very old car to do 11 thousand kms in a year.
According to Median, car owners make repair their car less and less in brand services, because of the aging of the cars and because the number of the cars without guarantee have significantly reduced.
However the number of the home repairing have slightly increased.
