What's normal mileage anyway??

6 Answers

To me that's a lot of driving but that's because I take public transportation to work. There are a lot of people that drive 50 miles to and from work everyday so it's definitely not uncommon to put 1,000 miles on a car every month.

Are you asking about a lease that only gives you 1,000 per month? That's is a typical lease option.

Not necessarily a lease, own my cars. In the last few years, I've been averaging more like ,500 to 600 might per month except for long distance trips which adds on mileage quickly. Depending upon the distance, this could be 1,000 to 6,000 miles.

The LONG answer. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the average American driver logs 13,476 miles each year. That's more than four times the distance from New York City to Los Angeles, California. Although this number may seem high, it's actually only a snapshot of how Americans drive. To further understand United States driving habits, it helps to look at the miles driven by various groups of citizens. Men vs. Women American men drive considerably more miles than American women, according to the FHWA. The average man drives 16,550 miles per year, while the average woman drives 10,142 miles. This gender difference holds true across all age groups. Older vs. Younger Drivers Americans do the most driving during middle age and the least driving during retirement. Americans between 35 and 54 years of age drive 15,291 miles per year on average. Those over age 64 average only 7,646 miles annually. Who Drives the Least? Women over the age of 65 drive the least of any age group, averaging only 4,785 miles each year. This may be due to generational differences in male and female roles and the high rate of retirement in this demographic. Who Drives the Most? Of all Americans, men aged 35-54 drive the most miles. These drivers, possibly commuting to and from work, log 18,858 miles each year. Teenage Driving Habits The average American aged 16-19 years old drives 7,624 miles each year. Teenaged boys drive slightly more than teenage girls, with males logging 8,206 miles annually to females' 6,873 miles.

Auto_Centric- YES, I would say that this is pretty accurate;. I'm retired and not commuting to work each day and even took a commuter train the last 10 years I worked because of excess congestion. I love driving on the open road and most other places, but NOT in bumper to bumper traffic.

Average is 10,000 to 15,000 miles per year. So 1,000 per month is right in there. HTH. - Jim
