Yes, 24/7/365.

8 years and 102k miles in all types of weather.

I bought it to drive it. :)

If I get one when my lease is over on my Dart, it's going to be my daily driver.

Yep, even though my wife uses mine to drive most days, while I take the bike. Up until this last year or so, it was my daily driver, over 175K since Aug 2006. Still makes me grin like a fool.

Yep, daily. Love driving it. 30-miles round trip to/from work plus evening "stuff". 42,000 on the clock and counting.

30 km each way to work, 6 or 7 days a week. Lots of room for groceries, different color halos every day. She gets parked for the winter tho, because Alberta winters will eat her alive

No mine is not a daily driver. It was and then we got the wife a new car and I took her 2004 Sebring that I drive through the week now. I generally drive the Super Bee on the weekends.

Can't believe the other two Philly area posters on this thread's mileage! It shows these cars can take it! I can't even imagine how they do it in our snow. My Dart can, but, my Bee?

That being said, I bought mine on 2-3-07, and she now has about 23,800 on her. A weekender, basically to local shows, out to Carlisle (next week) and occasionally to work if the Dart is in for service.

I bought my car new in 2007 and it is my daily driver. I put in heads/cam about 4 years later. Now I am looking at a supercharger and I still intend to daily drive it. For the last few years I've been working close to my home so I've only got 55k miles on her.

Yup, unless the snow is higher than the front end, then I'm taking her.

Yeah, when the snow gets deeper than the front airdam it becomes a very effective plow. :grin:

That's the only think that keeps me from driving in more than 6" of snow. I don't want to pile up the snow in front and damage the fascia.

Generally, as long as the plows have knocked it down I can drive on it without a problem. I have gone 5 miles through 8" of unplowed snow but it was the light fluffy kind so it didn't build up too bad.

Heavy RWD vehicle with traction and stability control...beats the hell out of the early 70's cars that I learned to drive in the snow with.

Daily Smiles

Daily driver for sure except for snow days when the F1s didn't stand a chance. Felt bad to be racking up the miles with a 2 of 2 car but like it too much to leave it sitting in the garage. I have 23K on my 2013 - with lots of smiles per gallon. Life is a short journey - driving an SRT every day seems like a bonus to me.

Me too, but even with traction control, I don't know how you do it! My Grand Marquis (07) would barely move 5 ft with just an inch on the ground. Hence my Dart.....!

I feel the exact same way. Every minute I spend in my car I'm like "hell yes I'm in an SRT" ...28000km later. I seem to have a 6th sense for when people are checking out my ride

It's a learned skill I suppose, but I've never had any issues driving this car in the snow. Go slow and feel the traction. "Surfing the inertia" is my best description. :)
