Drove over 200,000 miles in US, 50k Km in Europe and probably 2 lakh kms in India. So makes it around 6-7 lakh bracket!

I ve been driving since last 12+ years (on the tarmac) and as far as i remember , in my childhood i used to cover around 80-90 kms/day(approx) with my driver sitting on the passenger seat in M 800 and it continued till i was 15 , then after i was migrated to a Yellow Zen and it continued as above or may be a little more but this time without a driver and the next year i replaced the yellow zen with the Blueish Purple zen and my everyday use by that time was 110/120 kms per day and i kept that car for three years .

Then came the City 1.5 and was clocked 40000 in 1.5 years and then after the octavia which again clocked 40000 kms (approx) ....

M800 : 1 lac kms (approx)

M Zen : 30000 kms "

M Zen (purple) : 120000 kms (approx)

H City : 40000 kms (approx)

S Octavia : 40000 kms (approx)

Others : 10000+ kms .(approx)

So ,after a long calculation (atleast for me) i would vote for 3-4 lacs .

I'm guessing speedsatya has made the same mistake. The poll options need those commas!

yeah you are right ...for me its around 70k kms in my splendor and about 40k kms in my zen..
below 50k.
of these 40k in my car about 25 k has been on the mumbai -mangalore route ..

also have done about 10k kms ..while in delhi in my office indica where the driver used to rest and i did all the driving .

so will vote for option 2

I love to go for Long Drives,Recalling from my first car which was a Maruti 800 from 1997 to 2002 about 1.30L KM mostly long interstate drives ,mumbai-indore,mumbai-banglore,mumbai-goa & one of the longest stretch covered was from mumbai-vaishnodevi-haridwar-badrinath-corbett national park-delhi-jaipur-mumbai covering more than 6000Km (approx) in one stretch, In Yr 2002 got Ikon in exchange of M800 done abt 98K Km this too mostly interstate drives, Mumbai-Indore,mumbai-Amritsar-mumbai, & the longest stretch done recently around 4-5 months back was Mumbai-Hyderabad-banglore-Chinnai-banglore-goa-Mumbai .
Yr 2005 OHC bought recently already done 2000Km so total it adds to approx 1.30+98+2 = 2.30L KM
I wish to drive down to Leh-Ladakh once in a life time lets see when, anybody interested to join ??

i have two m800's till date and have clocked around 20000 kms in old car from 96 to 98 and then in the new m800 bought in 98 and it has clocked around 1 lakh kms which came thro only last week. so i have choosen option of 1 lakh to 1.5 lakhs.

not counting my kms driven in accent becoz i haven driven much of that car but may be around 10000 of the 60000 clocked till date.

Default How Many Kms And How Many Broken Bones?

Amby - 25 - 30 K
Fiat - 30 - 35 K
M -800 - 30 -40 K
Santro - 25-30 K
Fusion - 10 K
About 1,40,000 KM I guess

What's the significance of the KMs one has driven?
I once had a trainer who said, "its not important how many years you spend in the same job, its important how much you learn every time you do it".

I think it may be interesting to have another post "how many KM you have driven and how many accidants, minor or major"? Or maybe better, how many bones have u broken from accidents, LOL.

Incidentally......... I have 7 minor accidents and 1 major one, no broken bones or stichs; only lacerations and aberations.......
