Since the loss of focus on GWS

Thought it would be interesting to see what Cars forum members drive ..they say it often matches personality...

Or what would your dream car be..

Mazda 3 for me...very reliable comfortably car..

Dream was always a BMW..

As being an anti-carite I refuse to buy a car and have gone years without them but about every ten years my siblings insist I have a car so donate me a Ford, Holden or Nissan. I refuse BMWs, Volvos and Benz due to so expensive to run and hate driving them, so cramped mostly and bigish long legs don't fit in well. I insist on doing half a dozen jobs for each long journey.

As already stated I drive a Camry Atara SX

Dream car is an AMG C63 S, or if we're going vintage I'd love a '49 Jag Mark V or '59 Impala.

Look I know many would be already doing this , but when you have chosen what car you want , the next step is sending an email to every dealership in your state for the best deal

If you can wait to make your purchase , buy at Xmas time , it is the worst time of year for new car sales and they will do almost anything to get a deal and offer ridiculous amounts for trades

At work: Holden Colorado, Toyota Tarago, VW Transporter...all suck but that's the govt for you.

I lease a 2016 Ford Focus Sport, zippy little car which I'm very happy with, handles, goes and stops well. The Mrs bought a Mercedes C-class recently so I drive that when I'm back home visiting.

Absolutely correct....

I brought a Lexus RX350 just after Xmas last year and the savings were sensational.
