Default Re: How many kms (in total) have you driven?

Our cars' odo readings only give a rough indicator of how much 'we' have actually driven the car ourselves.
Unless of course its' a single driver car.
All my cars, past and present, were/are multi-driver cars.

Factoring in certain percentages, and without racking my brain too much, I have come to the conclusion below;

Hindustan Ambassador Mark 4 - 5000
Maruti 800 - 50000
Maruti Alto - 100000
Honda Accord - 10000
Volvo S60 - 20000
Toyota Camry - 2000
Volkswagen Polo - 10000

Total - 197000 so around 200k.
And thus my vote.

This poll was an indicator how my mileages have gone down over recent years.
A wake up call to get out there and enjoy life a bit.
Thanks GTO!

Default Re: How many kms (in total) have you driven?

I have been driving (2/4 wheeler) since 1998. My monthly running is around 3000 kms approximately, mathematics tells me that I must have clocked around 612000 kms, but I don't have the record of my drives when I was in college or while driving family cars so my official record is practically limited to personal vehicles and here it is:

Two wheelers;

Bajaj CT 100- 150000 kms ( I am a total fan of Kawasaki because of longevity of this engine, I think bajaj has ruined it now, discover 100 at my factory, despite of giving it proper servicing, had its engine replaced after 40000 kms)

Bullet Electra- 26000kms
Honda Shine- 7000kms.
Yamaha SZX 26000 kms

Four wheelers;

Maruti Zen 30000kms
Hyundai Santro 95000kms
Skoda fabia 76000 kms
Maruti 800 10000 kms

Sum total = 420000 kms. But I think actual my figure would be more then 5 lakhs for sure.

Added a line to the opening post. Of my 6 lakh kms, about 2 lakh kms have been in my Jeep alone . That's also the car I've driven the most.

Nice thread

Here is my driving experience on my own car,

WagonR - 61200 Kms (Sold)
Dzire - 74493 Kms (Sold after an accident)
Linea - 63204 Kms (My current one)

Total - 198897 Kms

I learned driving in my dad's Fiat Padmini, and used to drive his current Indica as well when at home town.

Default Re: How many kms (in total) have you driven?

Could we add number of accidents to the mix? Or is that too negative a topic?

My numbers are :

Pulsar 220- 10000 kms- 1 crash
Alto lx- 20000 kms- one reversing accident.
M800- 30000 kms - no accident
Gtx - 20000 kms - no accident
Baleno- 40000 kms - no accident
Rapid- 50000 kms- no accident
Civic - 50 kms , Work in progress

So a total of 170000kms in 8 years

I have quite a few on my 2 wheelers, but they were all while in college (young blood). I have broken my wrist, 3 fingers, elbow and infinite cuts and bruises to knees, elbow and torns of shirts and trousers.

Excellent thread.
I have driven ~1,20,000 kms so far, most of it in India. Taking this driving experience idea further, we should also have a thread listing all the vehicles (Two wheelers, Three wheelers, Cars, Buses, Trucks, Trains, Boats, Airplanes, Rockets etc.) you have driven so far, even for a kilometer! (Vehicles Owned + Friend's + Test Drives + Zoomcar + Stolen + Anything else)
I am sure many will revisit and cherish their entire life in the process
Mods will probably need an entire day to prepare such a list

I've never rode bikes long enough because I don't like 2 wheelers. My riding mileage is minuscule and when the moment came, made the shift to cars for good.

Being a diesel fan, all my cars are strictly diesel. My driving mileage is as follows:

Suzuki Swift: ~58000 kms
Suzuki Ertiga: ~54000 kms
Renault Lodgy (current ride): 12000 kms and still counting....

Overall, 1,24,000 kms and counting.
