I saw the zombie thread someone resurrected yesterday about mileage, and the recent responses had only one person clocking in over 40,000 miles (wdhitch, moderator, with over 60,000). I figure that anyone driving 20,000 miles a year is pretty dedicated (since it's about 500 per week). As of early Feb 2010, there are only a few of us over 40,000. 30,000 is pretty impressive, too.

Maybe we could make a little calendar of when we hit 10k mileposts. I went over my old posts (and a few others), and came up with some starter data. I'm about to hit 70,000 this Friday, so ...

MILES DRIVEN
date.who.(bought when)

70,000
02/12/10. unicycle. (05/09/08)

60,000
11/07/09. unicycle. (05/09/08)
??/??/09. wdhitch

50,000
07/03/09. KingNine.
??/??/09. jthw8
08/13/09. unicycle. (bought 05/09/08)

40,000
??/??/09. jthw8
05/21/09. unicycle. (bought 05/09/08)
??/??/10. bum-bling-B. (bought 04/26/08)

30,000
01/28/09. jthw8
02/23/09. unicycle. (bought 05/09/08)
03/??/09. okie_boy.
03/??/09. 2micro4u.
06/??/09. earldahl.
??/??/09. a2jack.

2micro4u was way up there, too, with 47,000 as of 7/6/09, just a few thousand behind me.
jthw8 was ahead of me near the 50,000 mark but later commented that I'd passed him.

And of course you can approximate. Add your info, and then print the list again.

There are also some Canadians who have over 100,000 miles on their 450s, and we should include them (maybe in a different color, for clarity).

Right around 31K miles. Bought on 15 Dec 2009 with 27.6K. My commute is 60 miles per day round trip, so 300 miles per week just commuting.

27,700 smiles, a week into the third year (brought home Feb 2, 08). Blown left low beam (replaced with cheapest Sylvania H7) discovered on the anniversary date last week, but that's about it.

I have had my little car since 03-2008 and only have just over 9000 miles on it. I drive it Monday thru Friday but my commute is 15 miles round trip. :) I need to drive my car more often to match the others on this thread. :)

I have had mine for about 11 months and I am just passing 20,000. :D

I usually drove 30,000 per year in my Subaru.


I have decided to do the service on my Smart by myself except for checking out the Alarm, which has been going off randomly. :(

I should bring it in now before the warranty expires. :p

DR :cool:
