A thousand miles and other markers

4 posts in this topic

For the first time since I've had all 4 older Monte Carlos (1972, 1976, 1979 and 1981), I drove EACH of them at least 1,000 miles in 2009. I came close to that milestone in 2008, but fell just shy. Now, all 5 of my Monte Carlos are "sleeping" for the 2009-2010 winter ... awaiting their 2010 debut.

Bob, my 2004 Tahoe, turned 100,000 in 2009. He went from averaging 1500-2000 miles per month down to 600 miles per month, since we moved to the city and bought Harold the Magical Unicorn (my wife's Malibu Maxx).

curious what your oil change interval is when you don't even log 3000 miles on your MC's knightfan.

edit: my car hit 150K miles ... on my birthday, i think. took a pic of the odo that day. 6/29

Well, My

2003 Cavalier passed 50,000 miles (currently 55,600)

2006 Cobalt passed 40,000 miles (currently 41,000)

2004 Cavalier passed 10,000 miles (currently 10,600) - the low milage on this guy is mostlt due to the fact the she doesn't see much driving during the winter, and I used to work a few miles from my house...
