I hadn't thought about this until this thread came about, and I got pleasantly surprised by the time and distance I've been on the roads thus far.

Dad's Bajaj Priya : 1000 KM
Hero Puch : ~ 20,000 KM
Suzuki Samurai : ~ 25000 KM
Bajaj Boxer : ~ 5000 KM
Maruti 800 : ~ 80000 KM
Tata Safari : ~ 160000 KM ( Two safari's )
Honda Brio : ~ 8000 KM
Toyota Innova : 8000 KM

A total of Approx : 280000 + KM's . Whew !

WOW... Some staggering numbers there.

I voted in the 100 k - 250 k category.

That's the guess that I had before I started counting the actual "mileage" after seeing the posts on this thread.

2 Wheelers :
Borrowed rides - 5 k
Suzuki AX100 - 5 k
TVS Fiero - 5 k
Honda Unicorn - 40 k

4 Wheelers :
Borrowed rides - 5 k
Tata Safari - 80 k
Toyota Innova - 50 k
Hyundai i10 - 50 k ( & counting)
Honda Accord - 50 k
Volvo S60 - 25 k (& counting)

Total "mileage" - 265 k & counting

I guess that we all tend to under estimate ourselves once in a while.

Mods, Is there any special allowance for us who are at sea half of our young & healthy lifetime, but clocking average 500 km/ day.....

Santro Zip Plus - 58,000 kms
Pulsar 220 DTSi - 53,000 kms

Being a biker at heart it comes as no surprise for me that I have ridden bikes more till date than driving a car.

Have done 100,000 kms plus on my RX from 2004 till date. Ninja was just around 4600 kms before I sold it and a little over 7000 kms on my RD. So roughly around 150,000 kms in total on bikes.

But after my marriage in 2013 things have changed and now drive around in my car around 99% of the time. We had an Indica petrol for 7 years and it was driven for only 26,000 kms before being sold, which also included a trip to Kerala. And post marriage I have driven combined in my Brio and Swift a total of 20,000 plus kms till date, and all this was just weekend driving.

Wagon-R : 7000 kms
Ikon : 10000 kms
Civic : 7000 kms
Swift & Dzire : 1500 kms
i10 : 1000 kms

So roughly about 27000 kms.

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

Wow! What a question!

I can only estimate roughly....
I started way back in 1985 naa!

My first bike was a Enfield 50 cc 4 gear Explorer in 1985. I did about 30,000 km on that.

The next was another Enfield - this time again a Zundapp - 175 cc Fury from 1987. I did about 90,000 km on that till 1993. From 1994 onward, it was mainly idle, till I sold it at a throw-away price in 1999.

In parallel, I had started using the company's Ambassador regularly since 1992 till 1994 and then again from 1997 to 1998. I must have driven about 20,000 km on that. I am not counting the 10,000 to 20,000 km of bikes and cars which I drove ON and OFF - which belonged to friends and colleagues!

In 1998 I bought my first car - a Maruti Omni E - which I drove for about 70,000 out of 80,000 km (balance by my wife) and sold it in 2011.

In 2002, I had a company Indica for about 6 months. During that time I must have driven it for about 50,000 km.

I bought a Honda City ZX VTEC in 2006. It ran for 1,30,000 km when I sold it in 2015. Out of this my wife must have driven about 10,000 km.

I bought a WagonR in 2011 - which is still with me - driven for 20,000 km only. My wife must have driven slightly more than half of it - it is mainly her car!

So, we have 30,000 + 90,000 + 20,000 + 70,000 + 1,20,000 = 3,30,000 km (approx)!

The funny part is that before today - I had not bothered to calculate this! And unlike most others on this site, I took more than 30 years to do this. I noticed that some others have reached higher values in less time. I can just say that I have enjoyed all those 3 lac kms!
