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

Very interesting thread. Would definitely like to look up to the numbers to the Million KM club.

As for me, it should be above the 6lakh mark which should include a variety of cars and geographies and limited to when I officially started driving

The main highlights would include

Speaking about US first

Around 80k on a W124 Mercedes E320
Around another similar 80k on a super reliable Honda Accord SEi
Around 32k on a Manual transmission Honda Prelude Si
Around 32k on various rentals across US

So around 2 lakh 24k in US

Adding about 15k in UK/Europe over the years.

In India, around 1 lakh 25k on a 1969 Fiat 1100D
around 1 lakh 30k on a 2010 Mahindra Scorpio 4x4
around 1 lakh 10k on a 2004 Ford Ikon 1.6

All of these cars are presently with me and run absolutely proper!

So a minimum of 3 lakh 65k on our own cars in India.

So doing the math, around 6lakh 5k atleast. Does not include kms on other vehicles or the unofficial period!!

Got my DL in 2000 and since then have owned and extensively driven the following :-

1. Bajaj Caliber
2. LML NV
3. MS Zen
4. Honda City
5. MS Swift Dzire
6. Chevy Cruze

(have excluded vehicles which were driven by me but were not owned)

The total kms clocked on the above mentioned vehicles comes to around 1,75,000 including some 40,000 odd on the 2 wheeler's.

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

I know I am going to get brickbats here for disclosing what I am going to now:
I have been driving 4 wheelers since 4th std and 2 wheelers since 7th std. By the time I was in first year of engineering, I was regularly doing Jalandhar - Delhi trips (365 km each side). Our cars in total do about 3500kms every month. More than half of that is done by me.

My calculations would be :

For the last 10 years, starting 2006: (9*12*1900) + (10*1900)~ 224,000 kms
For the 10 years, starting 1996: (10*12*500)= 60,000 kms
From 1992 - 1995- appprox 6000 kms
4 wheeler total ~ 290,000 kms

2 wheelers
Vespa ~ 10,000kms
CD 100 ~ 25,000km
RE 350 ~ 6000 kms
Misc ~ 4000 kms
Total ~ 45,000 kms

Grand total ~ 335,000

I am 34 currently, so that means for each year I have lived, I drove approx 10,000kms.
Or I drove on average approximately 26 kms each day I spent living on this planet.

LIVE TO DRIVE !!

PS: Request everyone not to be judgmental. It is hard to convince, but I have never been an unsafe driver. And I don't treat the fact that I started driving very early compared to most, as some sort of an achievement or accomplishment. I barely disclose it to anyone. But I just had to here (as an anonymous entity). Rest assured, my daughter will not follow my path. Although she just drew a car today. She is only 3 years. I'll put it as my profile pic

-RD 350 1988 to 1999. The last three years were not active. 90,000 KM
-Dolphin. 1993-1997 : 20,000 Km
-Maruti 800. 1996-2002: 45,000 KMs
-Indica V2 Petrol 2002-2010: 65,000Km

I didn't realise that I have done nearly 4 Lakh KMs..
