What kind of car do you drive?

I own a 2018 Kia Sportage.

This is similar to the one that I own (or technically financing for the next 5 years)




I had no choice getting a new car last March. I used to have a 2012 Kia Sorento that was paid off, but some guy crashed into my car when it was parked at work last March and my car ended up getting totaled. I ended up getting an $11K payout from my insurance.

Was not planning to get a new car anytime soon, but when that incident happened it forced me into it. I like the car, but hate having a car payment and expensive insurance rate. I'm also a freelance employee, so Summers are slow for me for income. Hopefully I can have the car paid off in 3-4 years.

Re: What kind of car do you drive?

I have a 2018 Chevy Equinox. Prior to that I had a 2007 Toyota Camry, which I still liked but it was starting to have some issues. I wound up getting a decent trade-in value and a decent price on my new vehicle.

2013 Honda Civic

Perfect car for me - not too advanced (donít want a push start ignition), but new enough to have USB, Bluetooth, and a digital dashboard. And I love the backup camera.

Re: What kind of car do you drive?

My last car was a 1994 Mazda pickup. I sold it seven years ago. I had nearly 400,000 miles and the only problem I ever had was a bad clutch.

2017 Chevy Spark. Does have shortcomings, i.e. need to open the trunk with the key, trunk is tiny, car itself is tiny, and only holds about 8 gallons of gas. But it was cheap

Re: What kind of car do you drive?

I have an '09 Pontiac G8 and a '92 Corvette. I got the G8 because I wanted a sporty, RWD car. But I needed something practical because my wife was pregnant at the time, so we needed a sedan.

I'm going to get rid of the Corvette soon. Keeping a car that old going is for someone who knows what they're doing (that's not me) or has lots of money to pay for someone else to fix (also not me). There's too much old plastic and old electronics and there is always something broken.

Re: What kind of car do you drive?

Still the same car, a 1995 Saab 9000 Aero. It ratty but it hasn't died yet. Mrs Danger still has the 1994 Buick Roadmaster station wagon, and we still love that car. I'm going to keep it running as long as I can.

Re: What kind of car do you drive?

I drive a 2001 Ford F-150 Quad Cab. It's old but runs great and I haul a lot of crap around and need the 4WD where we live. The wife has a Dodge Journey R/T.

When we bought my wife a new small SUV last year, we looked at every option and after test drives of the finalists (Honda, Toyota, Mazda), I liked the CX-5 the best but she liked the CR-V. We got the CR-V.

I expected to be excited about the Subaru Forester but we had to disqualify it before we even drove it. The front passenger seat did not have height adjustment even on the highest trim, making it actually unsafe for anyone over 6'2" to sit in. I don't know what the hell Subaru was thinking there.

Re: What kind of car do you drive?

Actually, I drive a 2006 Sequoia.

Terrible gas mileage, but a lovely beast otherwise.

Re: What kind of car do you drive?

I drive a Honda Pilot.
My wife drives a BMW 328i

We mostly use the Pilot. The BMW car is a good weather/weekend car since it's a convertible.
