A new study by our friends at iSeeCars looked at how many miles drivers put on 10-year-old vehicles. We like this study because we feel that it shows which older vehicles owners trust day in and day out to log big miles.  Phong Ly, CEO of iSeeCars.com, drew this conclusion: “The vehicles with the highest annual mileage tend to also be the vehicles that last the longest,” said Ly. “People who drive their cars the most are likely to prolong the lives of their vehicles with regular service and maintenance because these vehicles may be a large part of their livelihood.” That sure sounds like our group.

 

GM’s full-size SUVs make up the top three spots on the list of the overall most driven 10-year-old vehicles. They also account for five of the top ten overall. The number one most driven vehicle in the study, the Chevrolet Suburban, is driven 25% more than the average for vehicles in the 10-year age group.

When it comes to trucks in the study, GM trucks took the top two spots. The Silverado and Sierra are driven about 5% more than other 10-year-old truck models. “Pickups are often used as work vehicles to transport their drivers between job sites and accrue high mileage as a result,” said Ly. Interestingly, the Colorado and Canyon (prior generation) are driven less than the average. 

 

GM also had the vehicle with the overall fewest miles per year in the 10-year age group. That vehicle was the Chevrolet Corvette. As any sports car owner knows, the quality of those miles is more important the quantity.

Wow those numbers are nothing and they consider that a lot? I've been around 20k/year since I moved back to NH. In Michigan it was 30-35k+ but that was spread out among like 40-45 rental cars each year. haha

Agreed.  Like others have posted, I will have had my '15 Yukon XL Denali for a year here at the end of August and I've already put 32K miles on it.  I usually average 25-30K miles a year.

For 40 years I averaged 50K miles a year. Retired just under 20K a year. Those must be east coast numbers. The south and mid west should be higher.

I pack on a good 20,000 miles a year.

 

I will say we live in the salt belt and the older Chevy's have some rust where the Fords and Rams have holes in the bodies.

 

The Provincial Police are fast to yank any rust bucket off the road.
