What Does Lady Driven Mean? | Toronto & Mississauga
If you’ve ever checked out used car ads in Mississauga, Brampton, Oakville or Toronto, you may have seen the quaint phrase “lady driven” and wondered what it meant. Was it a good thing, or ? Back a few decades, when women were less likely to drive their own vehicles on a regular basis, it was meant as a good thing. If a lady owned it, the car had obviously been driven ever so gently, if ever. Maybe she even wore lace gloves, creeping along the side streets at a very graceful speed? All jokes aside, the mileage was automatically assumed to be low, the wear and tear on the car less pronounced. You know, maybe she drove it to her Tuesday bridge game once a week, or to the grocery store right around the corner. With 1.4 million more women than men licensed to drive, the term lady driven has a mixed meaning. Some car buyers will actually head the other way if they see an ad that uses the phrase, believing those old stereotypes that women can’t drive as well as men, or that we don’t take excellent care of our vehicles. Is it all true?
