This topic seems to be almost devoid of conversation. What form of transport do you use?
Car, bicycle, public transport . . . ? Why? What would you like to drive, if you could?
I drive an SUV that gets 10 gallons to the mile and I love it!
At least it's cheaper to run than a few months ago.
I have mostly driven 4cyl cars. Just published a hub on all my cars (ever).
88 mustang 5.0l convertible. lousy on gas, but the ride is great! More freedom than my motorcycle, no sweating under a helmet, no boots gloves and fear of lousy blind drivers. warm weather, just pop the top down and off you go. I love my mustang.
I drive a 1995 Dodge RAM 2500 V10, with a 6" lift and it gets 10MPG!
I want to get a Mazda RX8!
public transports and cars which can occupy multiple people at a time....as we use common vehicle..so we will be able save fuel..n so can save money..
Because fuel is not renewable source ...we must have to save that, for future generations...
Dont u think so?
I drive a 94 Mitubishi Montero and my husband drive a 94 Ford pick up. If I had my dream car for me a hybrid SUV my husband a 94 Ford pick up
I drive a 2007 Toyota Yaris. It gets 40 mpg. Although the Prius gets 60 we decided on the Yaris becuase we thought it looked better. Some reason huh? lol
Toyota Prius. I should've put it on water but haven't gotten around to it.
I don't own a car. Sadly, I can't afford it. But fortunately, in my country, you don't really need to own one.
But if I can afford it, I would like to take home a Ford F150 or a Silverado or a Chrysler 300 or a Bugatti Veyron. hehehe
I have a mk4 Ford Fiesta, small but fill up the tank and it (seemingly) never runs out!
Haha you'd think so judging by the distance it goes off one tank!
I admit I'm not much for driving "economically" and it's only since me and my friend with a mk2 Vauxhall/Opel Corsa (both of similar size engine 1.3 and 1.4 repsectively) decided to try hypermiling and got really good results, his car has a larger petrol tank so it took a bit more to fill it up money wise but they both lasted around the same ammount of time.
This was around three weeks of driving back and forth to work five days a week, we both live around 7.5 miles from work. We both managed just over three weeks worth, I know 279 miles was on the clock by the end of it in my car.
I don't know the MPG as I'm a bit pants when it comes to maths like that
There's a lot to be said for hypermiling, no sudden braking and trying not to go over 60mph worked wonders for me!
Just outof curiosity, how much are you paying per gal right now?
We are paying AU$1.oo+/- per litre. That would be (roughly) US$4.00/gal
Skoda Fabia VRS - 60 mpg Although I'm in the UK, so we're currently paying about £5 for a gallon (about $7)
I drive a boring old dodge neon. I hope to upgrade soon into a mercedes-benz! that would be awesome!
Dang I still had the receipt from a recent trip to the petrol station and threw it in the bin a few minutes ago. Filling up my tank cost £26, plus I'm in the UK too so I'll have to take WHoArtNow's word for it.
Lol I thought you were, not many people outside of the USA would have a Vauxhall Corsa!
My vehical is pretty invaluable! It is two wheel drive, goes foward, backwards and sideways, can go over most any obstical and even climb stairs.
This vehical was invented before the wheel. It is called a Legsus, make 78 model 5'2. Really, it has never failed me yet.
Gas in Nebraska was US$1.69 when I left last week. I haven't paid much attention since I got here to Seattle (visiting relatives), where they have actual public transportation and stuff.
I have an elderly Toyota RAV4 inherited from my b-i-l. It's got some issues, but it takes me to the grocery store and the library, and that's all that really matters.
ETA: BTW, Sandra, I love your new avatar. You have absolutely gorgeous hair!
I walk to my work place, generally use public transport or cycle round London, or walk. We do have a car - a Fiat Brava. Works well, little maintaining to be done, gets about 35 mph, and is quite fun to drive as well.
If I lived in London I'd use public transport too, that congestion charge would bankrupt me!
I don't have a car, but I get my dads on weekends. 02 Santa Fe
I drive a Renault Clio and have had it 7 years now, I love that car and it's really reliable.
2004 Nissan Sentra SER Spec-v
1996 Yamaha Seca 600cc
I don't own a car. Never have. Won't until it's absolutely necessary (ie, I have kids). I walk and take BART and busses everywhere. The occasional cab if something is really inaccessible by public transportation (ie, not within a 30-minute brisk walk), or if I am wearing heels above 3 inches.
Hi guys, i use a Nigerian assembled car called Peugeot 406. Its simple and affordable
I drive a BMW , yup worked my batooty off for it too!!! It is a little gift that I strived for and it took quite sometime. I do have to say I love my car and after owning a few American made and Foreign, I will never buy anything else. I am now done and plan on keeping my car for another 20 years. lolololo well who knows.
Hope no one drives a GM car!
Peugeot 206, a bit feminine for me, but I love her!! And despite what people say about French cars, this ones done me proud for the last 3 years. Gotta touch a table now :-). If there was a little switch under the bonnet to change it to an Aston martin DBS though, I would press it!
I drive a Fiat Punto...it's not exactly a 'head turner' but it's served me well!
2001 Mercury Marquis gets about 21 city - 27 highway mpg
Jeep Wrangler - soft top down whenever it is even slightly reasonable weather :-)
A beat up old chevy pick up. It has a stump puller of an engine and it sucks gas faster than I can pump it :-)
I drive a pontiac grand am, and it's purple. I want a black acura TL, I don't know why but I think they are the best looking car possible
I drive an early 90's model 4x4 2 door tracker (25+ MPG pulling the boat), I am hoping to save up enough to put a lift and some wider tires on it..
My wife drives a 1999 Pontiac Trans Am with an LS1 V-8, and even though it screams on the highway it still manages mid 20's MPG on highway trips..
an 02 grand am se1 aka the crapmobile
why? because I have to
what would I drive if I could? hmmm...SUV of some sort
I drive a 1993 Pontiac Sunbird convertible. I love it! I would say my dream car would be 1967 Pontiac Firebird but I think my sunbird is as close as I will get to my dream car.
How come I did not post here yet? Anyway, a couple of Civics and Murano, and Galant when I visit Moscow...
Misha, I was reading all the posts here and wondering, how come - nothing from you. LOL.
I got my driving license only when we moved to WI, never drove before (there was no need for this, In Soviet Union I couldn’t afford it, in Israel public transportation was excellent), but in my corner of the world you are useless without vehicle. I try to walk any time it is possible (within 3-4 miles). Otherwise, I drive 2007 PT Cruiser (I like it, though not crazy about it), my son drives my 2005 Toyota RAV4 (this one I love!, but he needs this type of a vehicle more, as he is more on the road than me, so I gave it to him). Before we both had Chevy Trackers, very nice cars.
I drive a 2008 ford focus. bought it right off the show room floor. has every option available in the 2008 focus. its great on gas but it sucks a little in the winter because it is so small and we get a lot of snow here.
Hubbie said I could probably get a nice little 4x4 truck next purchase
A red 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser. What I'd like to have/drive is a 1971 Plymouth HemiCuda.
I drive a 1999 Ford Taurus Station Wagon. It gets surprisingly good gas mileage for such a big car (about 25 mpg), I guess because it isn't a boxy car and I drive almost entirely on the highway...very little stop and go.
I would love to commute to work some other way, but as I start at five a.m., nobody is around to commute with and there are no buses where I live.
It seats 7 people and is invaulable hauling stuff. I could load it with all kinds of gear when I was in the band and I can load it up with a bunch of aluminum to take to the recycling center.
It has 141,000+ miles on it and I don't want to give it up. I am looking to buy a newer car in the Spring as my oldest daughter will be old enough to drive, plus its always good to have a spare just in case.
I drive a car, and I'm almost embarrassed to tell you what kind. But I will anyway: I drive a 1995 Ford Escort. They don't even make them anymore. But, it's still in good shape and has hardly given me any trouble since I've had it. Thinking seriously about getting a new one this year, not that I need one!
I drive a Saturn Vue, but the gas milage sucks pond water. And it's had nothing but little issues that require me to keep taking it back in to the dealership. I want to get rid of it before the warranty runs out. We're looking now to trade it in, but I don't even know where to begin looking for a new one!
2004 Mazda 6....Performance White, Chrome package, 5 speed
Dream car....Mazda RX8...almost bought it when I bought the Mazda 6, but as a single woman at the time, I wasn't prepared to take car of all the extra maintenance required for the rotary engine. The Mazda RX8 would be more fun as a second car rather than a daily driver I think.

Should there be separate seating for men and women in public transport?Is it a good idea to prohibit one from sitting next or adjacent to opposite gender on public transport? Should there be designated seats for women-only on public transport?

My 12 year old recently went on a camping trip with some of his dads friends. While on this 'camping' trip the following happened. The old ladys grand-daughter was 'upset' so the woman gave her car keys to my son and told him to take her grand-daughter for a drive. He said it was only...

Water pump is missing a bolt, is it safe to drive my car?I had my water pump replaced. After the guy put everything back together, the guy tells me he lost one bolt. First he says don't drive the car, then he says as long as it doesn't over heat I'm good . I will eventually replace the...
