Follow-up ? to the half-/full-door? below ... in a hybrid-/full return-to-work, I will have some highway and/or city driving. Thoughts on those who are using their 392 as a daily driver?

I will let you know as soon as they finish fixing the damage they caused well loading my soon to be 392 onto a rail car. This will be my daily driver but I only have about a 3 mile round-trip drive to and from the office.

Daily driver here, but I only have a 20’ commute to work. Since last March, I’m home and not going back to the office!

I daily about 30 miles average. Not a big deal really. It drinks gas, gets dirty, and is quite comfortable on longer runs, especially with the exhaust turned off.

My dilemma as I have a 140 mile round trip commute daily and 3 other plants I manage and visit frequently that are much further away. I put 30k miles a year on my vehicle and am trying to decide if the 392 can fit in as a daily long commuter, frequently.

I split time on visits to my outlying responsibilities with mama’s car, my 392, and my fun car. I’m going to say I don’t think I would have a 392 as my only ride.

Been daily driving it for almost 4k miles now. Trektop on fulltime, but haven't put the halfdoors on yet since it's been 100+ degrees here lately.

Stock suspension and tires, but that's soon to change. With a mix of city, freeway, and a fairly heavy foot at times, it's been a little more thirsty than my old 3.6 on 35's, but better than expected (hovering around 15-16mpg).

Daily driver here - 50 miles round trip. Now that the lead foot has lighted up a bit, I can go all week and a few trips locally before a refuel. It just doesn’t get old. 🤣

Daily here...of course so far, with the nice summer weather I'm on the bike more than in the Jeep. ;)

I love it for a daily driver...not one single complaint.

Yup, daily driver here. Plan to store in the Michigan winter because of the salt.

Just took a 1200mile total round trip road trip last week, no complaints....

Depends on how I feel, but mostly yes. It's .9 mile each way so doesn't matter much.

Mine is my daily driver. I will say the 13.5 mpg I’m getting is hard for a daily driver, but I only live 2 miles from my office.

The morning drive through the development acts as a wake-up alarm. ;)
