2021 Honda Accord Hybrid. 45+ mpg city/highway, super smooth, comfortable ride. Great sound system, safety features, auto dimming headlights, push button start, auto locks when you walk 15 away, touch the door handle with the fob in your pocket and the door unlocks automatically, moonroof, heated seats, best auto climate control Ive ever had, I really like it.

I don't drive anything fancy. I mostly drive a 2012 Ford Fusion with a 4-cylinder engine that gets good gas mileage. It has only 64K miles.

I also have a 22-year-old Ford F150, a very simple, stick shift pickup truck for doing utility jobs. It has only 23,000 miles on it.

My wife mostly drives a 2004 Mercury Mountaineer with all-wheel drive, which is helpful to us way out here in the country.

So all our vehicles are fairly old but well maintained, all in excellent condition. It's hard to face up to buying a newer vehicle considering the prices, and the truth is, we don't drive very much anymore. We're both retired and very content enjoying our home in the peace and quiet of the country.

Default What do you drive?

Its almost four years old now, but with the advent of Covid this all wheel drive Volvo S60-T6 sport sedan only has 22k miles on the clock. Really fun to drive on the local country roads!

And in the summer the AWD Palisade serves double duty as the tow vehicle.

I noticed one of these over here the other day and looked them up
on the innernet... over here (everywhere?) they're all automatics.

They sure look cool, and the way you describe it, it sounds cool ...

Actually, Mrs perttime drives it daily and I might go once or twice a week. Has space for two adults, a dog, and a some stuff. Ride is firm with the slightly lower than stock suspension, and it will keep up with traffic.

(Summer photo. It did fine on snow, last winter, with winter tyres)

Oops, I actually meant 19000 miles which comes to a little over 4500 miles a year.

Frame rust is a supposed problem with 1st and 2nd gen (and other?) Toyotas
like Tacomas and 4runners if you live in a place where they salt the roads...
My frame (South Carolina) looks great...

One of the last real SUV's with body on frame construction and a properly placed longitudinal power plant. No electric vehicle BS. No CVT. I'm sure I'll get several hundred thousand miles out of it.
I was an auto tech for a long while and the Toyota vehicles are incredibly well built.

We've been Jeep owners since the mid-80's and my 2016 Wrangler is our 8th. I've owned it a little over a year and couldn't be happier.

Of course the mileage is poor compared to some of those listed above, but considering it has the aerodynamics of a brick I'm happy to be averaging 17.2 in the city.

It may get poor mileage but it can go almost anywhere and is infinitely customizable.


Best,
Photojeep

My bimmer is a 2015. I used to drive VWs too ('76 Rabbit, '77 Bus, '91 Jetta JLI). I looked at the diesel Jetta wagons when I was shopping... right before the emissions scandal broke. Glad I didn't go with VW.

Mine is a 6-speed manual, front wheel drive. Here, the used market seems to have more automatics/paddle shifts than manuals, especially for the larger engines and more recent ones.

I drive a Toyota Prius as my everyday boring car, but I have a Mk1 Mazda MX 5 (Miata in the US) in the garage which I only bring out in the good weather. It's a great little car just for the fun of driving.
