mileage for resell is based on the model year @ an average rate of 12K - 13K per year which is the national average per driver according to the the U.S. Dept of Transportation.

something to keep in mind, if you have vehicle that is say a 2007 but you bought the car in 2006 (did this with my wifes car, bought in Sept 2006) those couple of extra months of mileage will hurt you.

my 2005 Chrysler 300c was built and purchased in April 2004, so I had nearly 1 year of extra mileage that hurt me on resell, because even though I had actually owned the vehicle for 7 years, it was actually only 6 model years old. So I had 7 years worth of mileage but it was calculated @ 6 model years. @ 7 years my average was 12142 miles per year, @ 6 years it was 14166 per year and I was dinged for that.

as far as resell mileage is concerned, as long as you are below the national average of 12k per year over the life of the model years of the vehicle then you will have a slight advantage.

but also keep in mind that any vehicle with over 75K regardless of it's age will only net you auction price on a trade it, as most dealerships will not keep vehicles over this mileage on their lots, they will dump them @ auction for the private lots.

I bought my 2011 2SS/RS in November 2010. Today it has 78000+ miles on it. I too am trying to keep the mileage low for resale.........Not! I bought it to drive. When I'm done, there will be nothing left of it. I bought it for my use, not to save it for the next person.

10.5K miles in 5 months on my '13. Don't care about mileage, I bought the car to drive.

A little over a month ago I purchased a 2011 2SS/RS with 2934 miles on the clock. Then I had to drive it 2200 miles to get back home since I bought it out of state. Currently have 5600 miles on it. Thing is for me this is not my DD but a toy so it's more difficult putting miles on it that keeping them down.

Nice handle! I took it a step further. My wife called it my "mid-life crisis" when I bought it, so that's what I named it! (Sorry to thread jack OP)

Just traded my wife's 2011 Equinox in. It had 75,000 miles on it in roughly 22 months. Got really dinged on trade in for that.

I can't stay away from the fun.
This, except I'm putting miles on FAST.

I took delivery of my 2013 at the end of January with 11 miles on the odometer. I'm over 6,000 right now.

My 2010 RS will be 4 in September and currently have a little over 5400 on the clock. Some times I wish I drove it more and sometimes I'm glad it's safe in the garage

I drive mine when ever I want but park it during the winter. I've had it since september of 2009 and I only have about 13,500 miles on it. So I'm averaging about 4,000 miles a year give or take. So I don't think your that bad. I'd say I'm on the really low end but there are a lot of us that don't want to expose our cars to the salt they use on the roads here.

Hell Joe's had his car for a few months longer than I have and I don't think he's hit 900 miles yet!

Bought my '13 SS new in December 2012. Had 220 on it because they had to bring it from an Atlanta dealership. I just turned over 3K miles (that's about 600 miles a month average) but I doubt I can maintain an average that low. So, yes... your 2011 has pretty low miles on it. You're averaging about 500/month.

Well I feel better about my miles now. I don't really go too far out of my way not to drive it. It's mostly a weekend car and no salt car. So otherwise it is out and about. Thanks again for the input.

Again who knows what tomorrow will bring, you could end up losing your job, contracting a terminal illness, or have an accident where you will never be able to drive your Camaro again. You better enjoy it while you can. You can always buy another car or have yours restored. Don't waste a day, life's too short to save your car for the next owner.
well said ^^^^^^^^

picked up the Z in aug 2013 with 3 miles on it
8500 miles later and not my daily driver
picked up the ss/1le in dec 2013 with 12 miles almost 5000 miles as of today

Just wondering how many of you who say you bought it to drive and have a lot of miles only have 1 car. Everybodys circumstances are different. If you think low mileage doesn't add valve , your wrong. Someone hit my wifes 2003 Avalanche and totaled it. It had 41000 miles on it, insurance co. added $4975 for low mileage. I'm planning on keeping mine, so I'm not saving it for someone else, I'm saving it for me.
