What do you drive when the TV is parked?

I had an idea that hopefully create some discussion.

We just traded our little 2013 Hyundai Tucson that my wife drives around town for a 2013 Volvo XC60, T6 AWD.

We really love the safety features and the ride. I named her Vulva today!

I've got a company car that I drive during the week...Chevrolet Impala. Wife loves her Infiniti QX56 (basically our full time family mobile!).

My husband drives a Ford Fusion but I drive the Chrysler Aspen because I only have a 10 minute commute.

2015 GMC Acadia. We call it the "Truckster"! LOL!

We traded in our 2006 X-Terra for it earlier this year because the X, though it was a GREAT vehicle, didn't have enough room in the rear seat for our son's child seat. The Acadia has more room than we could ever use, has EXCELLENT road manners, and is generally an all-around great vehicle for our little family. It has become the family "hauler" since we bought it, and my truck ends up spending most of its time in the garage. Until it's time to work, then the truck really shines!

We have a motorhome so obviously we need other vehicles.

DW - 2013 Toyota Highlander
Me - 2016 Honda Accord EX-L V6

We Enterprise when we camp, so whatever they throw at us is what you'll see us driving !

The truck and an '06 Chevy HHR are both used as daily drivers. I have a 23 mile drive to work. When gas was $4 I drove the HHR 4 days a week. Now just 2 days. I take the truck the other 3 days. We usually tool around in the HHR on weekends.

2013 Jetta TDI. Claim filed to cash out.


Any recommendations for a $22K to $25K fun-to-drive, good-on-gas, NOT VW replacement?

The truck is my daily driver, and DW drives a 2010 Hyundai Accent. She refused to drive a thing bigger, even though I tell her there's no difference between the truck and her car except that it's longer, taller, wider and more powerful. Beyond that, they're virtually the same.

I used to have a 96 Camry, but decided one vehicle was enough. My RAM does it all.

Actually my V6 Accord does a 0-60 in ~5.7 - ~5.8 according to Car and Driver. When I don't put the auto in 'sport' mode I can still chirp the tires in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gear if I dump on the pedal from a stop.

And - drums please - with Honda's cylinder deactivation I get ~31 mpg 70% highway 30% city.

I really love my Honda. Makes me grin every time I get on it for a merge. More spendy than 25k but perhaps a low mileage certified used might fit the bill.
