Automotive industry wins a big market in Indonesia. The rising economic rate, the growth of middle class society, and the increasing buying power from millennials segment encourage the expansion of this industry within the last decade. This condition is even more dynamic due to the various payment scheme offered by the corporation and leasing such as low rate of interest and relatively low-cost down payment. Among all kind of personally owned vehicles, motorbike and car becomes two most prominent types which significantly increase every year. However, although motorbike industry seems to be the most significantly increasing category, but car industry could not be underestimated as well.
We conduct a survey to our 524 panel of respondents in nationwide to map their profile as car owner. According to the data of Korlantas Polri, up to 2013 the total population of car vehicle in Indonesia has been reaching 10.54 million. Therefore, our sample size is considered as an acceptable number based on Krejcie and Morgan (1970) table of sample size guidance.
The highlights of our findings in this survey are mostly related to the difference profile of female and male respondents, as well as the older and younger respondents. For female respondents in this survey, the influence of spouse and parents on their car purchasing experience is very high. The same finding also be found on the younger respondents in this survey whose age were under 19 years old.
For the first step of this survey, we filter our respondents based on their car ownership in their house. According to our data, 93% of respondents in this survey own car in their home. Moreover, the owner of the car in their house is displayed in the image below.
From 93% respondents in this survey, we further ask them to mention their owned car brand. In general, five car brands are mentioned by most respondents in this survey such as Toyota, Honda, Daihatsu, Suzuki, and Nissan. Furthermore, regarding the reason of choosing their preferred car brand, most respondents in this survey tend to emphasize on their trust of product quality and after sales service aspect.

However, we also find that few female respondents in this survey who own car tend to have their car chosen by parents.
