2010 Chevy pickup truck with about 24,000 miles.
My new Rubicon with 1,024 miles.
The gas mileage is about the same on both, but I prefer to drive the Rubicon, because it is just a lot more fun!

We have a 2006 Scion tC that was bought new. 86,000 miles and never any trouble. But... I drive the Jeep most every day 40 miles round trip to work. The tC would be more sensible with it's 4 cylinder for gas (29 mpg) but I just love driving the Jeep!

Traded my Ram pickup truck 4 years ago for my Wrangler. Had to have another truck. Got tired of hauling lumber and mulch with my jeep. Been looking for a 1993-1995 Chevy or GMC 1500 stepside pickup to use for home projects and to restore and modify.
Found this 1994 GMC C1500 for sale in somebodys yard for $2,700. Needs a paint job but runs like a champ. But I still love driving my Wrangler and use it as my primary.

Well, I retired recently and decided to get the Jeep. We sold our 2012 Audi A6 and a 2007 Chevy Diesel Dually and now drive the Jeep as a DD just because it is so much fun.

I do have a 32 Ford with a 1200 hp engine used for the drags but I don't think that counts as a driver car.

I have a 2005 V8 4Runner 4x4 with around 85,000 miles. Will probably never sell this thing. We love it, even though the clearance is not that much. It does have the FJ's TRD suspension on and drives amazingly well.

Currently my DD Is a 2009 two door cobalt. It gets most of my road miles.

I had a 2004 F150 FX4 that I sold to get my Jeep. I never drove the truck (maybe 5,000 miles a year after I got the car).

I've had the Jeep for 3 months and have put about 2,000 miles on it. It's just a weekend ride.

We have a 100% electric car that we try to drive as much as possible. It's a 2013 Nissan Leaf and goes about 100 miles on a charge. It keeps the gas in the tank and the tread on the tires of the Jeep. Our gas bill for the entire month of April was $90 with a combined mileage of 1700+ miles on both vehicles.

My daily driver is a 1993 Schwinn that I bought 10 years ago for $30. (I have a 3-mile commute in a city with many bike lanes/paths.)

I put approximately 1500 miles per year on my Schwinn. It looks like I will log approximately 3000 miles on my Jeep.

I have several because i am crazy. I have a hyundai santa fe that i was going to pay off at the same time as buying the ollllllo but i got ripped off on the jeep and it wasnt even drivable when i got it. Been trying to sell it but the bank is blocking me from selling it. Its a nice ride but its no jeep.

I bought a 96 chrysler sebring jxi last year for cheap. I had to have a convertible. Its got the interior ripped out for a color change at the moment. That is a badass car even if it is front wheel drive.

Then winter came and i got mad and got a jeep. The battery on the hyundai died at the dealer lol. Its mad.

Always wanted one anyway. Almost got a tj for my first car but didnt because the carpet was moldy and the windows were left out for the winter one year. Man that was a mistake. No one told me the carpet comes out.
