What type of vehicle do you drive?
I drive a white Hummer H3 and my husband drives a Dodge Ram truck. I hate them both ha ha just kidding I just don't like the gas mileage we get :eek:
i have a saturn outlook and dh has a toyota fj cruiser (not very family friendly...we didn't have afamily when we bought it though)
I have a Pontiac Montana Extended Van, and my husband has a Toyota Camry. Love Love Love my van, and we both love the mileage it gets, especially with DH's car mileage.
most of the time i'm driving a BabyTrend sit'n'stand stroller
DH has a '77 Ford F250. Because he's an idiot.
The family car that gets the most use is a 98 Mazda MPV and its the COOLEST FRICKIN THING i have EVER owned! the mileage isn't great but its way better than DH's truck, has 4 wheel drive for the winter and back roads around here, has 3 rows of seating, but i wouldnt want to put adults in all the seats, its like a minivan ran into the back of an SUV so its just a little longer than something like an explorer and the leg room in the back seats is pretty slim. The back seat folds down so you can have cargo room in the back too.
and we own all our vehicles outright.
We drive a Chevy Aveo. It's small and I'm so glad we get to upgrade this summer! The kids carseats fill the whole back seat, and the double stroller takes 20 minutes to finagle in to the trunk!
We're thinking of getting a Dodge Journey this summer once our lease is up. Obviously we need something bigger with #3 coming. We'd get the Journey with 3rd row seating so it would seat 7.
I drive a 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan (just picked it up a little over a week ago) and DH drives a 2007 (or 8, can't remember) Ford Sports Trac pickup.
i have the oldest car so far! and i don't mean the 77 truck either
I drive an '08 Toyota Highlander Hybrid and dh drives an '05 Volvo S40. He's also got his baby, a '78 Porsche 911, but he only drives that occasionally.
I don't drive, yes 32 years old and still don't have a licence. DH drives a 2006 Honda Civic, though our particular car is cursed, has had minor problems since the we bought it, nothing like our first Civic which was a dream.

Ok, I'm super curious..... can I ask why? Every time I hear about an adult who doesn't drive I always think, "How can you stand it!???" haha, so I'm very interested to know.
We have graduated licencing in Ontario, at 18 I got my G1 (learners permit), never did anything with it cause I got pregnant at 19 and DH got his licence instead, so we didn't want to pay for a car and insurance for 2 people. My G1 eventually expired.
Many years later I went and tried the written test again and failed cause I didn't study, my bad. I planned to get my G1 again just before TTCing or while pregnant with Natalie. But we aren't sure what happened in that time and I came down with a neurological disorder know as Dystonia, it in my case it causes the muscles in my neck and shoulders to spasm resulting in uncomfortable posturing. I do currently undergo treatment (botox in the neck, and muscle relaxants) to deal with the condition making my life as close to normal as we can.
That said I'd love to be able to drive and have my own car, but I'm not comfortable driving with my condition.
Oh wow Amanda. That sounds so tough! You seem really strong to get through all of that!
Amanda, thanks. It makes sense. I was just being nosy!
I don't mind people asking questions, it's not like I have to answer if I'm not comfortable with it.
I have an Expedition that gets like 1 mile per gallon. But it's being paid off in 10 months so I can't complain. I'd like something a bit smaller maybe but not sure I want another payment.
I drive a 2001 Chevy Malibu and I hate it!!! Can't wait till DH is done school so I can get something else!!
an 01 PT Cruiser. It's very high mileage, but we have no car payment (haven't in a LOOOOONG time) and we're very close to having 100% cash for our next upgrade! Exciting stuff!
I drive a 2007 Honda Pilot - we got it a year ago and we LOVE it! We highley reccommend it to people w/ familes looking for an SUV
I have a older durango and I love that thing its beat up and I don't care where I park it or who parks next to me and we got it for cheap so hardly any payment left on it...and its huge on the inside and its our dog/kid-mobile...:)
We also have a hybrid escape but are in the process of trying to sell it because I'm tired of the payments...we only fill it up once a month BUT its not really that great on gas when you factor in the $600 car payment....:eek:
