Just wondering how many of you rack up the miles everyday or just drive on those nice sunny weekends. I'm one of the weekenders myself.

i would call mine a weekender but after racking up 33k miles i guess it's more of a DD although i'm cutting back on the DD function.

It is a daily driver but I avoid driving it on ungly days but in SoCal those are few and far between (except for the last week). Even with that said I only drive about 6000 miles per year.

When I had my '04, I put 6100 miles on in one year.
When I had my '06, I put 9500 miles on in 20 months.

When I had my GTOs I always had a 2nd car for winter or other beater duty. Now my only car is an '07 Cobalt sedan (ugh), and in 4.5 months I still am under 3000 miles. Guess I just don't drive that much.

Then I go out and spend $500 for some Hakkapeliitta tires (because the stock Cobalt tires have "sucky" ratings for snow traction) and we've had a total of maybe 3 inches all winter.

While this would be Goat Hibernation Season for me, I still miss my Goat.

Mine is a daily driver. Fixing to hit 16,000 miles on her. I am fixing to take it to Florida again, I live in Tenn. It is to fun to keep stored away, (No offense to the ones that keeps theres perfect like I wished I could). I'm just jealous that I cant keep it in the garage when it rains and is cold.

Have no choice but to drive her every day. Surely makes the commute go by quickly! I'm well over 30,000 miles. When I sell her, she'll be a well-used, well-loved car.

My goat comes out only if it is dry (inside garage). I comute into the city by train and I've got an 89' accord to keep at the train station. I do drive it as much as I can, but I put about 400 miles on her a month (depending on the weather). 10,000 miles 2006 m6
