Yeah so I'm looking at a Truck Trader ealier and I can't get over how many miles some people put on their cars. I saw a 2003 Explorer and it had 120,000 miles. WTF? How do you drive so much that you put 40,000 miles a year on something? Shit, people like that will wear their car out before it's even paid for. What are they doing, driving across the U.S. every other week?

That was real common too, 2001's with 150k 1999's with 230k.

I bought my 1989 Jeep in Feb. 2001 with 112,000 miles on it, 5 years later it has 172,000. I drive it to work everyday, 35 miles round trip, I drive it just about every day on the weekends and still I've only put about 12k or so a year on it.

Where do you drive that every day?

20-25,000 a year has been my average for probably fifteen years now. That includes up and back 5 days a week to many different jobsites and driving for the family.

Basically it's an every other month oil change for me.

I've had my Wrangler since April and I've got over 19,500 on it now. And that doesn't count the miles I've put on my pickup that I'm still driving.

I drive around 30-35,000 miles a year, but that's just back and forth to work 5 days a week and 1 trip a week to the dump, dump is about 2 miles from home. we use the wife's vehicle on the weekends if we go out somewhere.

More like where DID I drive it. It's my wife's car now. I used to commute from Modesto California to San Francisco every day. It was 2.5 hours each way.

It's also been driven quite a bit around the midwest in the last year. Rather than take a plane for business trips, I've driven it to Kentucky, Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois and Pennsylvania. I've driven from California to Wyoming on a road trip. Basically, I used to drive the piss out of the thing.

It's the most reliable car I've ever owned, too.

Nowdays, it just goes to the grocery store every now and then. I also rent cars on the company dime now.

I live about 4 miles from work - 10,000 or so miles a year.
Link Posted: 2/9/2006 12:19:23 PM EDT
Almost 20k miles per year. The crazy thing is, I used to live less than 4 miles from work, and I was still putting on that kind of mileage. A lot of trips I guess. I've had the car for about 3 1/2 years, and I'm almost to 65k now. It sat for 4 months one summer while I was travelling for work.
Link Posted: 2/9/2006 12:20:23 PM EDT
Now that I have moved close to work, along with not wanting to waste expensive gasoline on frivolous trips across town, I drive right at 15000 miles per year.
Link Posted: 2/9/2006 12:22:53 PM EDT
About 35,000 miles per yer traveling our great nation for my job.

Since the start of the year I've worked in four states from NY to NC. I'm home in PA and my next move is to Louisiana. Done that drive many a times.

I got a 2000 Grand Prix late last March at 75K. It just broke 99600 today. I drive 31mi to work, then 51mi to school(night classes), then 20mi home. Traffic blows all the time. I have no idea how people can put up with commuting +1 hours each way everyday in traffic.

about 30k a year. Wife does 25k a year.

I put 215K between 9/95-10/2001 on my Ford SHO before it died. More in repairs a month towards the end than the car was worth with all of those miles.

My car has 158K, and my wife's SUV has 178K. Both still run well, but the value of them is 0.

Used to commute 50 miles each way in the .com days. 100 miles x 250 work days/yr = 25,000 miles/yr. Actually a little more because they paid me double time on Saturdays and paid for my commute time too.

Luckily it was all highway and all rural so there was no traffic. Took me 45-50 minutes to get to work.

I put 55,000 miles on my Altima in two years.

I have a 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix GT with 30,000 miles on it so in the neighborhood of 5,000 a year on it.

I have a 2005 Jeep Rubicon Unlimited bought in August with 2,900 miles on it so this would be roughly 5,000 a year on it also.
