Chasing tail can cause you to rack up miles.2017 F-250. Just turned over 30,000 miles on the way back from Olustee on Friday. I had just a shade over 11,000 on it a year and a half ago. Then I met a woman. We all know what that means...
When we met April 1st of 2021 I had about 13,000 miles on my 2018 Cruze. It's pushing 40,000 now. She had a 2018 Subaru with about 95,000. That woman drives a lot.
It's time we had the talk about how we can't afford a new car and these need to last a LONG time. Oh, wait...we already had that talk. Then she drove down to TX to visit the kids.
I’ve got a 2011 F250 I bought new in April 2011, and it has 207k on it. At least 75% of those miles are back and forth to Oklahoma. My round trip is generally around 1300 miles, so it’s a good thing I can’t come up more often.
Over the years, I’ve traded trucks at around 130-140k, and then have to see someone else drive them around town for many more years. I really like my 2011, and there’s nothing mechanically wrong with it. My intention is to see just how many miles it can go. Having multiple trucks, I pretty much only drive it to church and to OK.
