First week miles

How many miles did you put on your new JK in the first week? I find any excuse to drive it. I'm at 410 and didn't even have to commute to work this week.

Bought mine 30 April so I guess that makes it five or six weeks old. Been driving it like mad ever since and already have 2300 miles on it.

Put 2100 on mine from 5/10 to 6/10. Not counting all the time sitting in it in the garage!

It's crazy. After owning my last car, which I really didn't joyride around in any longer, I figured, "Eh, I'll be excited but I don't think I'll be cruising around like I did when I bought the last car," but sure as shit, I find myself itching to joyride...and I go. I just can't discipline myself!

Anyway, around 2400 miles since 05/16/12.

April 29th, 2690 this morning. 800 miles by the end of the first weekend. I find myself creating reasons to go drive or offering to drive.

Brought ours home April 6th, 3300 miles to date! My last car was a durrango (which I loved) but only put a little over 5,000 miles per year. I think I will be way over that! Love to drive it everywhere I can!!!

Picked mine up with 7km on it. May 29th/12. Have 1087km on it. Would love to have more but I have been in the work truck more than I have been home lately. HVAC tech in the heat never gets home to have fun.

Not real sure about thinking running up miles is cool? Just can't wrap my mind around it, but if y'all think more miles are good then go for it.

I'm with Steve, since I signed on 4/23/12 and didn't take ownership until 4/25/12. I made the salesman drive it to the house, so it had 50 miles before I drove it. (I didn't drive it before I bought it)

With that said in 8 weeks I have a total of 592 miles to date less the 50, I have put a wopping 542 on the "Girl" in 8 weeks.

Sometimes less is More if you get the point?

Oh, Yeah just another take on this. Break in period is very important and you should think about that.

Just food for thought!
