keithr, haven't heard from you in awhile. Geezus, I think you had that milage last year when I was still around 15k. I finally passed you up buddy! You must have that thing in cold storage or something. I'm so bored not doing things I drive more now. I have just over 22K on my 6/98 bought car, built 04/98.

My gosh, do you guys just not drive your cars much?

What about for a reccord, who has put the most miles on in the least amount of time? I know Sexly put 18,000 miles on his 98' in only 8 months!

Herman, i'm always here, just don't post as often. I have an 1983 Peugeot that I drive to work and it keeps passing smog so I keep driving it. It's only 8 miles to work and i'm down to a 4 day work week, I work Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, so every day is either the equivalent of it being a Monday or Friday. I work 10 hour days, except Saturday when I work 6 1/2 and get paid for 10 hours.
Not bad eh?

Same here...the 88 Jetta gets the nod. The Passat is saved for long trips.

Well, on the other end of the spectrum, I put 1,000 miles on mine in a week!
I tell myself that it's because I'm trying to break the engine in as quickly as possible, but in reality I just can't quit driving it...

I hear ya... I put 1K the first week of ownership, then hit a 2.5K mile road trip a month after. I was doing the 5K mile maint a month after ownership.

I am now back down to a reasonable level, 40K in 2.6 yr of ownership, near 15K miles yr average.

There was someone several Years back that had a '98 and the car was just over 1 year (belive he was from Europe) and he had 100K on his Passat. I believe he was the first to put that kind of miles on the Passat. I have a '99 and I have almost 51K. But, I have gone on many long trips, so that really kills the miles on the car. Many enjoyed miles at that.

My 2000 has 29000 mi on it and I garage it in the winter! I drove it my first winter and when I had almost 20k on it in a year, I decided to get a beater! Now I drive a 1985 Honda Accord in the winter and my baby gets put away. My honda had 25k on it when I got it last September (it was some old ladys-everything was origional!) and now it has almost 40k!
