A survey from GM has revealed that parents' biggest vehicle pet-peeve is a dirty car, that many are planning on buying their child a car when they get their license and more than a third consider their vehicle their second home. The results are from a survey from GM that reveals interesting facts about American parents' driving habits and plans. The Back to Driving Survey commissioned by the GM BuyPower Card, looked at 789 licensed drivers in the U.S. with at least one child 15 years old or younger living at home, and revealed that:

  • 27.6% are considering either purchasing or leasing a new vehicle
  • More than one in five (22.9%) have already saved money toward a new vehicle
  • Nearly a quarter (23.7%) spend five hours or more per week on school pick-ups and drop-offs
  • Nearly three-quarters (72.9%) of parents spend more time in their vehicles during the school year than they do during the summer
  • 87.5% spend more on gas during the school year, versus when school is out
  • Nearly three-quarters (72.9%) noted that their biggest vehicle-related pet peeve is that, during the school year, their vehicle is constantly dirty
  • More than two-thirds (68.3%) of kids eat snacks in the family vehicle, while more than 56.5% of parents indicate they snack as well
  • More than half (51.8%) of respondents are driving vehicles that are five years old or older, and more than one out of five (22.8%) drive vehicles at least 10 years of age or older
