    holy hell! are you making runs to Tijuana a few times a week to average that?! i average between 400-500 in my van every week and i feel like im always in that damn thing.
    but seriously, when it come to my WRX, the downside to hardly ever driving it is that i still feel as if im just getting to know its ins and outs even after a year. like i still dont 100% trust my mirrors when i change lanes

    I have 12,000 miles on mine and I just got it last October. Looks like I'll be racking up about 25k a year on this bad boy. Hope it can take it.

    honestly dude i feel your pain/gain. i just broke the 1 year mark on my 12 wrx and i just hit 17,000. in all honesty though its been the best year of driving that i have ever had. i understand why people want low miles on there cars but a car is meant to be driven not sit in the driveway and looked at. the real gem in my eyes is not a 10 year old car that only has 1,000 miles on it. its a 10 year old car with 300,000 miles on it. you know the owner beat the crap out of it and it kept on going.

    That's exactly the problem. I always want to drive it. Oh, we're going to Atlanta next weekend? No need to buy plane tickets, I'll drive! How many miles to Pittsburgh and back? Cool, let's drive!

    "I'll drive!"
    "Let's take my car."
    "I don't feel like driving, but let's take mine and you can drive."

    It's gotta...stop....soon...

    Sounds about right... I've put 65k on my car in the three years I've owned it.

    Doesn't really feel like I drive THAT much either... mostly comes from a lot of summer trips and driving up to the mountains 3-4 days a week throughout the winter to ski.
