Only 2-4 times a day. Once on the on-ramp going to work, once on the on-ramp coming home, and maybe a run to 100 if there is no traffic.

About 2-4 here... not so much in the Bonne, maybe 2-3 a week driving her...

My summer car gets the mash about 2-3 times everytime I drive it, lol.

5 - 10 times here. EVERY time I pull out of my driveway, or pass someone, or just accelerate in general...

ESPECIALLY when I drive under an overpass in town at lower speeds....I LOVE to hear that supercharger whine and exhause echo like crazy

You'll have to ask my WIFE that question. As for me, put me down for never. I baby my cars. It'* enough for me to know I've got it under the hood if I need it.

No wonder you guys are going through transmissions & engines every other week.
