I got this idea while sitting on the throne(toilet) where all good ideas come from.

Basically, since the Europeans always complain about how Americans complain about gas prices and saying the Americans don't need trucks and should drive tiny little cars and stuff like the Europeans do, my idea is for ya'll to post if your in America, Canada, or Europe, the year of your vehicle, weather it's a car or truck and most important, the current mileage on your vehicle(ball park it).

Hopefully, once everyone sees how many miles our various vehicles drive in the different countries then everyone will start to develop some kind of respect for each other countries traveling needs.

It's a long shot though.

I live in America, drive a 1994 truck, with 164,700 miles on it.

Me and my boyfriend are kind of sharing both our cars at the moment.

Mine is a 1999 Renault Megane 1.6 RXE with about 56,500 miles (but it had only about 45k when I bought it)

His is a BMW 318ti compact with about 130,000 miles.


How does that exactly prove what we use the car for? I've only had mine a year. The previous owner never used it.

UK, 5-year old petrol car, a little over 30k. I don't often drive far .

The issue I have isn't with the size/economy of your cars (although this shouldn't be affected by the distance you have to travel - 'I need to drive long distances and therefore need a bigger, thirstier car' - that doesn't hold much water). The issue I have is the fact that your pricing on virtually everything motoring-related (fuel, insurance, the cars themselves) is so massively out-of-whack with the rest of the world. There is no way paying as little as you do for these things can be sustainable; somebody, somewhere, is getting brutally shafted just so America can continue paying peanuts for fuel. Why?

We do complain about fuel prices - and rightly so.

The bit in bold... Wtf?

Either way, I drive a 2001 Citroen Xsara with 78 000 I think. About 6 - 7000 of those I've put on since October (when I bought the car).

The main reason for complaint is that british petrol costs around $8.75 a gallon while most americans are complaining thats its costing them about $3.50-$4.00

Idk, I was hoping it would give more perspective into how much Americans drive verses how much Europeans drive.

My thinking is that Americans will have vehicles with more miles on them cause of the greater distances than compared to Europeans who really can't travel all that far inside their own country, which is why we have such differing opinions on what the other should drive.

EDIT: ^ I did a clutch in a 1985 Nissan 300ZX, I hate that car with a passion.

I think he means that there is a lot of unjustified fuel use. People who decide to own huge SUVs and Trucks when they don't actually use them for anything other than commuting.

It's typically battery powered, but I did a little research online and made some modifications so mine uses a small nuclear reactor with weapon-grade uranium as its primary fuel source.

03 Focus ZX3. Bought it in '07 with about 28k, now sits in driveway with a little under 80k. Plan on getting atleast another 100k out of it, I give my mountain bike more of a beating than this car has ever took

I thought that was just people who can't afford them complaining about people who drive them? Surely it's not just Europeans complaining about Americans?

US, in the midwest (flyovers for you guys across the pond).
drive a 2000 toyota solara, just hit 120,000 miles, have had it since '06. I like my car, but I kind want to trade it for a sporty hatchback like those audis or subarus. AWD would be nice, I recently drove an AWD suv in icy conditions for the first time, I was surprised by how much safer I felt than in my little FWD coupe. Winter road conditions around here are pretty terrible... so it would be nice. I would still never get an SUV/truck tho, unless I had a job where I had to tow around lots of stuff.

It has nothing to do with that. It's the attitude. It's bad for the environment and very wasteful. It's everyone's planet and I have a right to complain about people driving around trucks and SUVs with no real use for them (some people will need trucks)

If you want a nice vehicle, you can buy quite nice cars that are fuel efficient and comparatively environmentally friendly.

Wasteful, yes, bad for the environment, eh, not really in my opinion, the freaken pollen coming off of my trees and the fact that everything is greener than I've ever seen it and us here in Austin are in a drought right now makes me think otherwise.

Just my two cents on that issue.
