I currently drive my neat little Ford Escort (Manual shift) I love that thing. I think the only car I'd trade it for would be a something like a Mini Cooper or Austin Mini (in manual shift) but my car is great. the manual shift is great for doing donuts in the snow!

Both of my parents have Merc C-Classes. Mom has an '05 and dad an '07. He works at Merc so I think he got a special employee deal or something. I don't really like either of them, both are gray and boring.

Father's vehicle:
Series III Land Rover, ex-army, originally used by the 22nd SAS, which is... well, awesome.
Do I like? Yes! :D

Mother's vehicle:
Peugeot 805, boring family car.
It hardly uses as much petrol as the Land Rover (which literally drinks it), so it's better from a practical point of view.

I drive a 2000 Ford Focus. I don't know anything about cars, so I don't know how it compares to others. It does what I need it to do, though.

Pontiac Grand Am I believe. I too am terrible with cars. When I'm home, I like to drive my dad's car which is a former cop car with a Corvette engine in it or his truck. I love his cars. ;_;

My mom drives a black Ford Edge that we took a 2-year lease out on earlier this year.. It's..pretty kick-ass :D

My dad drives a pickup truck..a blue one..with a broken window..the stereotypical Mexican vehicle XD

I don't have my permit yet (still..xometimes my mom lets me drive her car short distances <_<), but my grandparents are holding onto the car I'm getting once I get my liscense, which is a silver Cadillac..from like, 1994 xD

..Dude, it's gonna be complete Hell trying to put insurance on that car ._.

I've got a 2007 Mariner and I like it. I got it to replace my Xterra, which is also a good little SUV; both can fit my dog and are sturdy enough. My only complaint is the gas could be a lot better. =/

Mom drives an Aviator, and it's pretty cool. The third row seating is nice for hauling more friends around. :cough: And my Dad has some old Ford truck -- I forget the model -- it's not bad, but I think he'll need a new one in a year or two. |D;

My parent's cars aren't that interesting, but my car is. It's not terrible fast yet but it sounds tough. :D

FUNNY STORY. About twenty minutes after making this post, I had a tire blowout on the way to school. Talk about bad luck. ;_;

That seriously sucks, Allstories. D: *throws you a tire* XD

My parents have four cars, seriously. In Germany, my mom drives an old BMW and my stepdad drives an old Volvo (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/1586553898/). Don't ask me the exact years on them, just that they're late 80s-early 90s.
In the US, my mom has a Pontiac Vibe from a few years ago. My sister drives it and it's a tad trashed. My stepdad has a PT Cruiser with flame decals on the side and on the front windows. It used to have spinners, too. My grandma drives it right now. XD

Ford Foci had a recall for tire blowouts. My mom kept making jokes to me about how I'll be driving and the engine will blow up while the tires blow out, since I want a Focus.

My mom drives a 1990 Plymouth Voyager that makes hilarious noises I can hear a mile away. My dad drives a 1998 Ford Windstar. I have no idea why we drive vans, but the family always had one.

I own a Orange and Black Cherokee Jeep, to bad I'm not old enough to drive it by myself...

February 14th, 2008, 6:47 PM
My parents own a 2000 and something Saturn Ion and a 2004 Buick Rendezvous. I love the Rendezvous, it's so comfy. :O As for me, I can't drive, therefore I don't own a vehicle. And I could never afford one anyway.

Lets see, my dad has an '05 Nissan Quest van, my mom has an '06 Toyota Prius, my brother drives some '01 Dodge truck, and we have some other old truck that we use when my brother is off at college and we need a truck bed. The only one I really like is the Prius, because it's so easy to drive. My brother bought an '01 BMW in the summer, but totaled it about a week after he got it, heheh

Once I get my permit sometime this year, I'll be driving the Prius and my parents are going to get my mom a new car. :D

I have a Toyota Echo.

I hate it. I want a fast car, like a Supra, or a nice looking car, like a Honda Accord.

I really hate my car, it's like a big fly/shoe box. And it's slow too. My brother was driving it once up a hill and a push bike beat him...

My parents own a Prado, big 4-wheel drive. It's scary to drive in and it makes me want to run people over..

My mother drives a Ford & my dad drives a Holden ^^
