The driver control system on our MKX indicated a fault this morning so I took it along to the dealership to get in checked out. They couldn't believe there were less than 7000 miles on the clock. We've had the car since Nov 15.

Go on then, post your mileage!

Probably around 12k. Luckily, I have a world vehicle though, so mileage on my own car is probably around 3k max.

What's a world vehicle? Google didn't bring anything specific enough up for me to figure it out.

We used to put right on 25,000 a year on our Accord, and about another 5,000 split between the F250 and the Mustang.

Then little Miss P started school, so we could no longer commute together, so now it's about 25,000 on the Accord, and 15,000 on the F250, and a couple of thousand on the Mustang.

BTW the Accord has recently passed 320,000 miles! A bunch of things are still original, including the clutch, starter motor, and suspension.

Default Re: So just how many miles do you do a year?

Bought my car in August 2015; it has around 4,500 miles on the clock.

I've recently got a lovely new electric cargo bike, and have a goal to do more bike miles than car miles in 2017. It helps that I have a teen learning to drive - whenever we go anywhere now, I toss him the keys so he benefits from more practice, and I benefit from not having to count those as my driving miles for my challenge
