Hi Bob - in my experience company vehicles tend to get thrashed - different drivers tend to make matters worse. Also remember different vehicles may have to make different journey types - different roads, different loads, motorway, town, etc. I once drove an Astra van which had done 175,000 miles by one driver and drove very well indeed- yet a similar van with 45,000 drove like dog. Turned out the high mileage vehicle had done mostly motorway work whilst the other done deliveries around the town and to farms. In all honesty there are just too many variations to make a comparison
