Re: your carWe had a Toyota Hilux when we lived in Kenya, I hated it, it was like driving a double decker bus (not that Iīve ever driven a double decker bus), but this kind of vehicle was a necessity there not a luxury. Our current car is a, now quite elderly, Mazda Premacy, itīs been, still is, trouble free and hopefully will stay that way for quite some time yet. We needed a car with plenty of room in order to get the dog cage in the back without taking up the back seats, it is diesel, we havenīt had petrol cars since, well I canīt remember when.
Re: your carI've got a four year old VW Golf TSI station wagon. Quite nippy and I love the amount of stuff I can carry in it. It's comfy and easy to drive with most of the usual refinements like parking sensors, sat nav/dvd player, together with heated seats and leather upholstery. The only thing I find it a bit difficult to manage in snow and somebody told me it was because of the engine being high torque (whatever that means).
Re: your carI love these car threads!
Re: your carI have a little Toyota Yaris, it's comfy & just the right size, quite old but goes on and on with very little trouble, I call it Pixie and I'd swear that when it sees me it wags it's tail! If it ever conks out I won't replace it, just catch the bus. My old Suzuki Vitara 4x4 was a good little car until someone ran into it I missed it like mad when it went to the big scrapyard in the sky.
Re: your carWhat are our likes and dislikes, you ask...
Re: your carMy car is a Ford Focus ST3. I bought new in 2007 and has just 27000 on the clock.
Re: your carOur CRV is 20 years old end of this month, love it, it's got the split boot opening so we can open the top window get the leads on the girls and then open the bottom for them to get out, no uncontrolled leaping out as the boot opens.
