Daily Driver here too. 100-150kms a day back and forth from worksite to camp and 1800-3000kms once a month home from the north for "daze" off. Really it is a tool for work. A really good tool this time round. Had Dodge trucks over the years. Hummers, 8 litre Avalanches, VW 1 ton syncro transporters, (a bunch), but came back to Fargo and am really happy with it. Probably another new one in the spring. Great truck.

42 miles per day round trip and once or twice a month to the deer lease sw of Abilene, Tx.. That drive is 234 miles one way. My ram 1500 5.7 Hemi Quad Cab SLT 4x4 is very comfortable and fun to drive.

Daily, about 30-40 miles a day. I would love for it to sit at home and stay nice and never have to worry about it being scratched, but then again I love driving it so much I couldn't leave it sitting at home.

Daily driver here too. I commute 120 miles/day 2-3 days a week and do lots of other running around in it too. I have had it just over a year and have 25k on it.

Daily driver...about 25-30 miles per day. I've had it for a year and a cpl months and have about 13,000 miles on it.

I've had trucks since high school except for a 2008 Dodge Charger RT. I liked it but couldn't get used to being that low to the ground.

Pretty much a DD for me, 53,000 miles approximately for my 2010, not all by me, I'm second owner, but I bought it with about 38,000 miles 11 months ago. I've been riding my buell more and more as a DD to and from work (unless truck is needed....I'm in construction) but the bike needs some work so until that's finished it's about half truck half bike. Once the bike's done it'll be mostly DD bike for gas savings and saving the miles on the truck.

I log about 45 miles a day in my 2010 CC 4WD. We have a couple other vehicles in our "motor pool", but I feel out of place in anything else now.

I use my truck as my daily. I bought it cause my previous car was breaking down way to often and I need something that was more reliable. On average about 25 miles a day (round trip, from home to school, to work) and every day i enjoy driving my truck. Gas isnt all that bad for me, i go through about half a tank a gas ever few days. I've got my truck sept 2010 and i just hit 15.5k miles like last week. My only complaint about daily driving is trying to park the SOB on campus. For some reason ASU decides to make parking spaces the size of a damn Mini. My roommates think I'm nuts for having a truck, but gas prices are reasonable where i live and most of my driving is highways, so its not all that bad

I have an old '96 Camry I try to drive as much as I can to keep the miles from racking up on my HEMI too quick. In fact, I drove the Yota about 450 miles today, up to KC and back. It gets 30 mpg more or less, so it saves me a few bucks on fuel.

The truck is a heck of lot more fun to drive, though, so it does get some miles put on it. Drove it down to Padre island a few weeks ago and put about 2500 miles on it that trip.

So I guess I'm saying, no, my truck's not a daily driver.

Bill
