I always knew I had a pretty hefty commute, but I never realized just how much I actually drive.

I brought the OBXT home on 7-31-09. It had basically zero miles on it.

Today, 11-23-09, I am about to tick past 7400 miles.

So in 115 days, I've gone 7400 miles.

For comparison, we picked up my wifes 09 Impreza (also with zero miles) on 10/04/08. She just crossed the 9300 mark.

Glad I didn't lease it!

I don't anymore. Prior to summer (09) I put about 3k miles each month. I am down to 700 miles a month.

My dad on the other hand does 50-60k (work vehicle) miles a year for work (general contractor).

I took delivery of my '09 in March and now have over 21K miles on it. My commute used to be 96 miles each way every day for work but now I rent a room from a friend during the week so I only do that drive maybe 2 days a week.

I've put on over 4,000 in about three months with my 00. i work construction so I drive all over the place to different jobs but me and my wife just like to cruise. Its pretty common for us to drive over 100 miles to go to a good resturant out of town. I love driving my subie so much that i always take the long way home.

I bought my 06 Impreza back in June 2006 with 8 miles. When i sold it last month, it had 83,500 miles. I averaged almost 25K miles a year.

Our 08 Outback is reaching the 40K mark. It will be 2years this coming March.

My wife and I drive a lot.

I put a little over 33,000 miles on a sport bike (2006 CBR 600RR) in less than one year.....that was back before I bought the Foz and only had the motorcycle as an only vehicle. It only got better with age, lol......

I took delivery on my 08 2.5XSports in April of 08. Odometer just turned over 58000 miles. I cover a large area of Central Texas about 300 miles East to West and 150 miles North to South. I don't commute to an office. I drive to customer locations and installations. About 20 -30 hours of driving a week. The Fozy has yet to have an issue. Put Michelins on it about 6 weeks ago. Run Wally synthetic and good oil filters.

I hardly drive my car anymore. So little that when I went out to drive it today (it was raining) I wasn't sure if it was going to start. And that's with a Yellow Top battery! It's just so much easier to ride my motorcycle. I have an EX500 for spring/summer and a K75 for fall/winter (and lots of warm gear)

I hear ya about the driving lots. Last December I switched jobs I live about 70 miles away each way. That and the second job is in philly (I live near NYC and the day job is at the jersey shore) - so the miles pile up fast! Somehow I feel that the 140 mile commute is easier on the car than the drive into NYC everyday.

Bought my car in September of this year with 5 miles on it. I now have 17,860 miles with another 1,000+ trip coming up tomorrow. I am to the point now where I will be renting a car for my weekend 1000 mile round trip home from work. Working out of town sucks.

That's why it good to have a car you love to drive!
Even though your a seahawk's fan, I find i agree with you often!!

I think of my 02 wrx as a smile every mile.

07 FXT, purchased new as well, currently at 59k miles
