Folks spend a lot of time working on their motors so I was suddenly curious to know how many miles a year peeps do in their vehicle.
Overall I do about three to four thousand mpy

Well, I bought it in December. Have so far covered 10.5k miles. So about ~14k a year all in.

With a set of comfy Recaros the Jimny isn't an awful little mile muncher.

18k in the first 3 years an 64k in the next 4 odd years. None of them particularly gentle either.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

I did 15,000 miles a year for the first few years I had a Jimny but only do about 6,000 nowadays. Over the years I've spent very little time working on my Jimnys. That's one of the things I like about them. They are inherently reliable, and when things do wear out they are quick and easy to remedy.

Thats why a year ago I sold my modern TDI VW Polo and swapped to a Jimny. The Polo was inherently unreliable, part of the emissions scandal, and every time it when wrong you needed special tool Xxxxx in order to fix it or the dealer. Apart from rust (now sorted, but hope Suzuki do better on the new one) its been 100% reliable so far. Only mode of transport, we cover approx 8000 miles a year.

My experience with regard to my Celerio is that Suzuki have gotten worse. As far as body paint and protection goes - where it matters (like engine bay and underneath) , not where it shows ;) - it is disgraceful.
Clearly it is not going to be something we'll know about for some time but if and when I bought a new one I would have it professionally treated or at least do it myself.
