We took delivery in late April 2009, so approaching 17 months of ownership. (But for sure we do so much more driving in the summer months than at any other time in the year)rbarrios said:pretty cool.
How many months have you actually owned the Trav?
sounds like many highway miles. At that rate-- I can see your tires going 80-100,000.andylibby said:Congratulations copper, but if racking up miles is the measure, I have you beat.
We took delivery the last week of October, 2009. Mine came with about 350 miles on it when we bought it just like Roberto's did (I don't know if it means the same thing as his, or if mine had been test driven a lot). My car is sitting at 27,600 miles as of lunch today. At this rate, it'll turn over 30,000 right about the one year mark.
It makes me wonder how long these Bridgestone tires will last. I've gotten them rotated twice and they're not showing much signs of wear.

Definitely that is the concern. As you may recall my most recent UOA of an OCI of around 5200 miles was stellar BUT that was summer, hwy driving. It is in the fall and winter where excessive short tripping in cold weather is the norm and this really taxes the oil.rbarrios said:and that brings up another issue--- those 2 mile drives may be a reason for the fuel dilution.
Ive always understood that short drives increase moisture in the oil and exaust pipes-- and I think also fuel entering and not being burned out of the oil.
And that is my concern as well. It would have been nice to have the extra year of bumper to bumper which one gets with the Enclave.odypilots said:High mileage has never bothered me, so I didn't think much of it, until it dawned on me that our 3 year bumper to bumper warranty would be expired in less than a year and a half.
