This past week my work truck turned to 500,000 miles. That is after 5yrs. and 7 Months. of driving it. Smile This is the 3rd Truck that I have Driven that I have put that many miles on. Shocked

GiddyUpGirl I dont think you can get that on the old Honda. Laughing

Nice...
I have to say, I wouldn't want to do even 100,000 on the Honda. That is too much!What a Face

I am impressed by the "overall" miles...
I can't imagine having driven over 1.5 million miles in my life...
Good thing you're getting paid to do it!

Congrats Sportsman. Is it time for a new one yet? What's the most miles you have put on one rig?

Maybe one of the brainiacs on this site can compare the amount of body abuse one takes riding a Honda 450 6000 miles compared to traveling half a mill in your 18 wheeled cruiser. That's a lot of miles...

PP the most on 1 trk was 599,000 miles on the last trk I had at the other Co. I worked for. Shocked That took 5 yrs. and about 5 months. It was an International Cabover Trk that was no where near as comfortable as the Volvo trk I now drive.

The lease is up on my trk next march. So sometime between now and then, they will either get me a new one, or I will end up with someone else's used one. Evil or Very Mad

You drive a truck for that many miles... I'd think you'd deserve a new one.

Good Luck

That is very impressive Sportsman! It’s a shame you don’t drive a big brown truck because then a lot of people in this area would see you more often. They love it when the brown truck comes to visit!!

Was told by the Boss That I may have to give up my Volvo in Jan. Wish I could keep it for another couple years. I most likely will end up with a "Ryder lease a junk" Freightliner truck that is worn out and falling apart. Sad
