Two milestones in October. My 2005 Silverado hit 10,000 miles almost six years to the date of my getting it.

The other milestone is that I hit 50,000 miles on my 2001 Lexus IS300.

My third vehicle, the '94 Prelude with 133K miles, has relinquished its daily driver status over to the Lexus. I had to replace the head gasket on the Prelude, and the car has other problems including HVAC controls and radio not working (the ABS stopped working long ago). I bought the Silverado with the plan of making it the daily driver, but a full-size crew cab pickup does not make for a fun drive.
