Well, there's plenty of other reasons why younger people don't want to own a car:
- More debt as well as maintenance & insurance costs when their income has remained stagnant
- Graduated licensing making it more difficult to get a driver's license
- Younger people tend to be more environmentally-conscious, unlike the Baby Boomers especially, & therefore support cleaner modes of transportation
- Also compared to Boomers, they're less steeped in car culture.
