Do you care about how many Miles you Drive ?

As the title states does anyone care how many miles they rack up on their New/Used Frontiers ?

I bought mine 2016 Pro4x Model in January 2018 @ 18,600 miles when bought

Current Specs 6 Speed Manual /AFE CAI /MPG 13.8 Combined estimated 16mpg a Gallon on Hwy
33" Tires 16 inch Wheels 16/285/75 Tire size 100lbs Brush Guard
6inch Fabtech lift /Trailor hitch
Gas used Shell Premium nothing lower than that and only shell since I bought it

Current Miles 31,012 for pretty much a years use

Trips
Work 10 min 5miles 7 days a week was hustling to pay off wife's car and make big Truck Payments
Moms house Hour drive 50miles 2-3 times a month if possible
Las Vegas 4 hours 272miles from home 4x or more a year /Family out there /Vacation
Casual driving church out to eat etc etc I am sure I put a majority of the miles doing this with family

In the end I have used the crap out of this truck to Haul /Travel Vacation and just All Purpose Vehicle as long as I take care of the engine regular oil changes tune ups maintenance shouldn't worry about my miles

What do you guys think ? Do you care about your miles or look at your Truck as what it's supposed to be a Workhorse !

Yes and no.

My commute to work is about 40 miles, so I have a beater econobox car that I drive mostly for the 30mpg. While I do like keeping miles off my truck, its more for longevity as I don't plan to get rid of it. BUT... I do love the hell out of driving and using it.

My truck is now 8 years old and has just under 100k miles on it, so, I think I'm doing well with miles.

I don't put a lot of thought into how many miles I drive my truck. I bought it new and I'm at just about 174,000 miles. It's a 2006 and it had about 22 miles on it when I finished test driving it.

I think location has some to do with it as well. Here in MN, I've never really "worn out" a vehicle, they have always become a rusty mess you give up on or are embarrassed to be seen in.

I would drive Fred Sanford's truck if it was reliable. I wouldn't be embarrassed one bit. LOL

I've never considered buying a new vehicle and then trying to keep the miles low.

If you buy something, drive it.

Why try keeping it nice for the next owner when you bought it for yourself?

Not to say trashing it is OK as I like to be in a nice vehicle, but I'm not going to go out of my way to try and increase a bit of resale years down the road.

If you take good care of it and maintain it properly, it will be worth almost as much as a pristine garage queen that someone bought and then rarely enjoyed.

My 1988 Mazda truck and my 1998 Frontier have 216K and 236K respectively. I don't care too much as long as they run fine and AC works well (Arizona).

I bought my 2004 Frontier as my "truck for the future" back in late 2011; it has 102 K on it now, and we drive that some locally and take it out of state on vacations, so I do try to keep mileage somewhat low on that.

All three trucks are 4-cylinders and 5-speeds. The Frontiers have timing chains.

'98 2WD, 4-cylinder, 5-speed, white regular cab, purchased in 2004 with 100K on it for the kids to drive, now it's back with us, 237K. 2004 King Cab 2WD, 4-cylinder, 5-speed, electric blue purchased in Dec. 2011 at 89K. Also 1988 Mazda B2200 Cab Plus truck (since 1994, 217K), 2WD, 4-cylinder, 5-speed, great truck. And 1971 VW Convertible (mine since 1976) and 1970 VW (260+K, mine since 1972).

Yes and no.

I moved closer to work, my annual milage went from 18,000 to 7500. I don't care how much I use the truck if I'm enjoying it. Commuting to work? Never again!

No, I really donít care about mileage because I buy them to use. My NV is catching up to my Frontier swiftly because itís just more comfortable to use. We take it on most jaunts because it has the bed in back and a cooler inside for food/drinks as well as a place to sit and eat it. It also tows better, not that the Frontier has any problem but I like how the heavier NV tows over the Frontier. So the NV has a little over 30k and the Frontier has a little over 46k now.
