If there is one thing we know for sure it’s that we Americans love our cars. We love buying them, making them sparkle and most of all, driving them. However, there are some vehicles that we drive more than others. Like, way more.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, the average American drives over 13,000 miles a year.

And according to the team at Carvana, who examined 2015 model year vehicles across 1,638,427 transactions from January 1, 2018 to May 23, 2018, these are the 15 most and 15 least driven cars in America.
