    What car do you drive and why?

    2017 Mazda 3 2.0 6MT

    Likes: got a good deal, 33 MPG without really trying, fun to drive
    Dislikes: a bit slow, interior not as refined as the GTI (my prior ride)

    Re: What car do you drive and why?

    I drive a truck, a '99 Land Rover Defender 90 (short wheel base).
    I drive it because of its off road capabilities (my other hobby). A permanent 4x4 truck that will tackle a 45deg slope going forwards or backwards. It will wade through water half a metre deep without modification (after some tweaks mine goes 1 meter deep with no drama) and traverse a 35deg hill. Its approach and departure angles are each an astounding 47deg. Great ground clearance and compact wheelbase.
    Not to love..., it is warm, noisy, cramped, steering is rubbish, body roll is pronounced, and understeer is anything from mild to epic.
    I just love it

    Land Rover Defender 110.

    Because.
    I've always liked them. It will happily carry the family and the dog (part of the family) anywhere in the world.
    People don't argue with it in traffic.
    I liked going fast too much, so needed to by a slow car.

    Bads
    Its slow, noisy, not very comfortable and doesn't turn very well.

    But I still love it!

    Re: What car do you drive and why?

    Umm I drive a thoroughly modified Duramax because I couldn't find a reasonable price on a gas truck, great for the winters and towing whatever I need to. It's a pain to work on usually not much space in the engine bay.

    I also have a sport bike and a jeep but I daily drive my truck.

    Re: What car do you drive and why?

    BMW 535ix wagon when driving my daughter and her wheelchair around, taking family trips or taking the dog to the dog park
    Nissan Titan Crew PU when going to the home improvement store or on motorcycle trips with a bike in the bed or towing a trailer loaded with bikes.
    Ford F250 Crew PU when hauling 4 horse gooseneck trailer to horse shows
    Ford Focus SVT when my daughter says something is wrong with it and it needs to be fixed.
    Mini Cooper S JCW when my wife isn't driving it and the weather isn't great and I just need a runabout
    Honda S2000 when the weather is nice day and I want to go out to lunch or take my wife on a date.

    I ride motorcycles for performance fun.

    Here only rich people that don't offroad drive defenders, it's a shame really. We have Jeeps though, and Toyotas. :D

    I drive an FJ cruiser. Had a proper jeep (6 speed, 2 door softtop, stripper with only options being AC and 3.73 rear end) but the family didn't fit well at all especially with gear. The FJ has less character and is a bit of a pig on tight trails but does the job and is ultra reliable.

    Nice trucks. I like better the proper jeep , but that Toyota looks capable as well.
    Here in Costa Rica we have lots of dirt roads. The rainy season bring mud making the rides much more interesting.
