Let's see your daily driver!

Recently my daughter finally decided to get a car so we gave her the Jetta that took two of my girls to college. Even though I work from home I decided I still need a daily driver and to keep my SS safe and warm here in the northeast.

At first I was going with a 392 Charger until the wife saw through that. She will drive this car too sometimes. Okay in life you sometimes compromise. She put up with my now very loud SS. And her Rav4 V6 is getting long in tooth but will last forever. So then I started spreading the daily beater net. I loved the 335i I had before the 5th gen Camaros came out. You can buy a nice used 335i for $30K but the cost of ownership is steep over time. Scratch the BMW.

Then I started looking at other sedans. I had just about settled on a Toyota Avalon, fun to drive I am told, when I found out you cannot get Android Auto/Car Play on the Toyota. I am spoiled now. So I looked at Mazda 6es. They are a lot of car for the $$ but again no AA/CP and no V6/turbo. I drove one, it felt good, but not quite right for us. My wife has a lead foot.

I had considered Honda Accords, but they all looked so dowdy. Then I discovered the V6 Touring sedan. I drove one and fell in love. It reminded me of my 335i and is almost as fast. It has the sport 19" wheels, suspension and every accord option. Sophisticated, comfortable, fast, and with great steering. Now my wife is asking me, will I drive the SS any more. Oh yes it is a great driving car for spring, summer, and fall. Now I have my cake and I can eat it too.

Let's see your daily driver if you have one, it should be interesting.

So this is Big Red. She's a 2004 F-250 Super Crew Long Bed. Almost 200k on the odometer and she's a 5.4L V8 gas 2WD.

Nothing special. Just the basics, no cruise control, standard radio, no power anything... good ol' roll down windows!

Mine (had fun in a mud hole yesterday) Gotta have 4x4! (2016 Tundra platinum 4x4 crewmax). Funny thing is I just picked up a used 2011 Audi S4 awd I'm waiting to arrive from out of state. The tundra sucks on gas and the ss will be about the same after my mods. They are both my daily drivers but the Audi will be my main dd.
