Just hit 30K, bought new in October 2006. Took some long trips in it, too. It's nice living in a small town: $20 in gas lasts me a full week!

I was reading an article somewhere a few months ago that the average for a car in the U.S. now is under 9K/year, down about 25% from 10 years ago. I guess it's gas prices?

I bought my in Sept of 08 and I now have 21k on it. I mostly like to take it on road trips, I've been wheeling in TX now 3 times, to the Summit twice and to Little Rock, AR once on a dog transport. I drive 60 miles a day round trip to work, but I don't take the FJ unless it is bad weather. My 90 Miata is still getting over 30mpg.

I'm still not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. Should I drive it more or less?

2 years 2 months of ownership. Just hit 18,500 miles.. Enjoy driving but have a long commute (100 miles)and use a fuel squeezer for most daily driving. Winter is the time when I use the FJ more for daily.

A little over 26K miles since Nov 07. It is driven almost exclusively back and forth to Colorado/Utah for vacations which amounts to at least 90% of the mileage. It has barely moved since I got back from the Maze back in mid-November sicne they use salt on the roads here in Indiana.

56k in 3 years...not too bad. Lots of road trips and living close to work has it's rewards.

City Slicker mobile only has 14,000 in three years. Most of that came from going to Summit last year followed by a trip to Yellowstone. If I can make the Alaska trip next year, I should get some good mileage on it but then again, I might have a 'real' FJ (4x4) by then and will put the mileage on it.

Geez, you are a disgrace! Get off the internet and drive that thing, anywhere!
I had 20,000 miles on mine in less than 6 months.
