Excessive Milage?

  1. I have 62,500 miles on my truck after only 19 months. This seems A BIT excessive to me... How many miles do you have on your vehicle and how long did it take you to get to that point?

    GEEZ!!!! That is excessive. I just got a new car in October.... so I've had it for about three months now.... put on 2700 miles in that time.

    Is your commute real long?

    I do drive aprox 1 1/4 hr each way for work so I know where I got all those miles, it just seems to be a bit strange to have gotten 18-20 oil changes in as many months.

    I've had my car for 8 years and it only has 54,000 miles on it. That included a round trip drive from Alaska to the lower 48.

    This is the fastest I have ever gotten to this point with a car. I got over 60,000 on a car in about 6 years before.

    Regular Unleaded is about 1.35/gallon right now. I get about 3 round trips for work out of one tank.
