Meh, I want a Ford Focus. Not a car guy (but then I wasn't a watch guy until recently....) so would just be looking at a cheap commuter. Friend swears by his Volkswagen Golf though.

If I had the money, I'd want a Jaguar F type or a Lamborghini Reventón for Lottery winnings Big smile

I've never been a car guy and I doubt I ever will be. It will always be SUV or pickup and they are always be all wheel drive.

Yeah yeah I hear the battle all the time.

Car Drivers: SUV drivers are silly. They think they are all that with all wheel drive but I see them in the median every where when it snows.

SUV drivers: Car drivers are silly. They claim that they can do the same thing as a SUV but every year I see them in the median when it snows.

The truth of the matter is that its the idiots who end up in the median, not a certain make or model of a vehicle.

ps. I don't pass up stuck cars in the median, I stop and pull them out. Can your car do that?

Max strolls out to his garage, throws open the door and wipes a mark off his pride and joy. The best damned car GM ever made. A 1975 Opel Manta B series.

If it's summy tomorrow and I can afford the gas, sorry petrol, I may take it for a run down to the shops and back. Big smile

PS I believe that in the US it was built as the Chevrolet Monza

Ugh!

I bought a 2009 Jetta so I wish I new that before hand Ugh So far it has not caused me any trouble. I hope it stays that way. My friend bought a Golf back circa 2000 and it was not end of trouble for him until it burst into flames Ugh

Pulled a small HGV out of a goods yard before. Granted he only needed a little help to get traction on the ice but I felt like superman.

Problem is SUVs mostly are just big cars with bad 4x4 driven by people who have no idea how to drive in snow. A BMW or Porsche 4x4 are damn near useless off road and are simply school run mum cars. That's the pointless SUV we hate, not the range rovers and land rovers.

Er, my SUV is a Land Rover.....

I would also like to point out that driving a 4x4 on snow is not the issue. The driving is never the issue. It's the stopping that people don't understand. I'm just as capable driving a vehicle in 2 wheel drive as I am in 4 wheel drive. One should figure that to be true for many people considering that not every make or model SUV even has 4 wheel drive capabilities, which is something that people never take into consideration when they do the winter median boast.

So I'll say it again, it has nothing to do with the vehicle make or model, it has to do with the driver. If you want to keep making boisterous claims be my guest, but I find it all pointless and redundant.

Oh yeah, I don't pull anybody, I just sit in one spot and crank them out. Like I said, my girl is a big girl, and she's got a of of weight on her.

See you have a proper 4x4 and use it for what its ment for.

My beef is with the big car for no reason school run mums who have no idea how big their motor is that tailgate you to the local shop where they proceed to park slightly over the line. After shopping they leave the car park making sure to use both sides of the road around every corner while making sure to never use their indicators and oh god I want to run them over in a tank.Evil
