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

I've driven about 1,30,000 kilometers on the humble Indigo. While that is a pretty common figure, the one thing that makes this number very special and somewhat unbelievable is, I've never sat in the back seat of this car while it was being driven! I've sat in the front passenger seat while the mechanic was test driving or some relative was driving, but that distance isn't too much.

Have driven cars of relatives/friends ranging from petrol Ritz, City, Alto, Fiestas to the Movus, Innova, Verna, Dzire. That would add up another 3000 kilometers.

On the 2 wheels, my humble XCD has served me well for 53,000 kilometers till the meter gave up. Have driven a Passion Plus and a Pleasure for 7000 kilometers, and a Thunderbird for 600~ kilometers.

A very nice thread indeed.

Thank you, but it doesnt feel as a real accomplishement. Truth be told we should probably look at these number based on everybodies age, or years of having a drivers license.

In general with age comes mileage, so Im just an old git, who spent a lot of his time behind the wheel.

That's all. No big thing, other then in those 10-14 very high mileage years I did my health in. It required adaptions to my car, seat, continuous fysiotheropy, once a week a chiropractor, saw many specilists, because of all sort of issues related to spending that much time behind the wheel. So be cautious with high mileage per time unit!

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

It seems to be that every Bhpian has driven 1 lakh + kms minimum!

What about me, you ask? 1500 kms. No, that's not a typo! I got my licence just a year ago, and have started driving regularly only since the past month or so.

Already have a bucket list of places I want to drive to such as Pondicherry, Mahabalipuram and of course, Leh!

Brilliant thread! Total Kms driven is what I use to convince my mom whenever I venture out on roadtrips!!

Got my licence in 2004 and since then;
- ~43,000 Kms in Santro
- ~ 100,800 Kms (63,000 Miles) in US (Freelander + Ford Fusion + Nissan Murano)
- ~30,000 Kms in XUV

For a total of 173,800 Kms over 11 years.

Add to that about 45,000 Kms done on Hero Honda CBZ and that makes it a total of 218,800 Kms!

And as far as I can remember all but 900 Kms have been in the drivers seat!! And never sat in the back seat

I would suspect <1,00,000 KMs. Although I have driven and ridden in many parts of India, East, West, North and South, and in various climatic conditions including snow, there has been no vehicle of which I was the primary driver/rider. So quite hard to keep tabs. And most of my driving is out of station trips since I walk to work and all of those kms are within India.

Roughly adding I must have a driving experience of around 6 lakh kms and assuming the average speed to be 25km/hr, the experience in hours shall be 24,000 hours.

Thus I can say, I have 24,000 " DRIVING HOURS " experience (aka Flying Hours for pilots) . Whats yours?

I wonder if the average speed I assumed is fair, counting the free roads of yester-years and the mess we drive in today.

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

Edit: Started in 1991 i guess.

Easily would have covered 5 lakhs. Let me take a very approximate try. Own vehicles would be:

Mofa - 500
TVS Champ - 15,000
RX 100 - 30,000
Shogun - 25,000
RXG - 20,000
RD - 15,000
CT 100 - 15,000
Striple - 6,500

1,27,000 kms

Omni - 40,000
118 NE - 20,000
Maruti 1000 - 25,000
Zen - 30,000
Gypsy 410 - 8,000
Esteem - 20,000
iKON - 40,000
Swift - 80,000
Gypsy 413 - 15,000
Thar - 15,000
Ritz - 3,000
Santro - 1,000

2,97,000

Other cars in family would be another 1 lakh kms easily. Friends would be another 20,000.
