The Million Mile 2nd Gen Tundra

The Million Mile 2nd Gen Tundra

There has been plenty of discussion, wonder, and speculation about Victor Sheppard's 2007 Tundra. It recently hit 1,000,000 miles on the odometer (which subsquently has stopped working). Our colleague Tim Esterdahl wrote the initial story for Truck Trend last month.

So what does 1,000,000 miles on a Toyota Truck mean? Turns doesn't mean much to Victor. According to the original article, the truck has had very few issues and continues to make trips across-country as his work vehicle. I guess you'd call this a 'daily driver' =) let's break down what 1,000,000 miles in just over 7 years means. We'll do a theoretical road trip from Virgina -> Louisiana -> North Dakota -> California -> Louisiana:

Norfolk, VA -> Houma, LA (Where Mr. Sheppards Toyota dealer is): 1113mi -> Bismarck, ND: 1661mi -> Long Beach, CA: 1598mi -> Houma, LA -> 1871mi

That road trip would be about 6243 miles.

Number of trips to get to 1,000,000 mi: 160

Months since Tundra was purchased in May 2007: 92

Average miles per month: 10,869

So to reach 1,000,000 miles in 7 years, 8 months, and 28 days (approximately), Victor has basically driven ACROSS THE COUNTRY (and back) 1.73 times per month.

I think the rest of us can stop complaining about our daily commute =)

Thanks for sharing your story Victor!

Looks like this truck is still worth a cool $10,852!
