Default Daily driver

For the members who have Challengers (and those who are still saving up for one like myself) what are your other car(s), truck(s), SUV(s), minivan(s), or whatever for daily driving?

I'm predictable as I have a 2002 Intrepid ES still and will have it for a while. After I get my Challenger, I think I will eventually replace the Intrepid with either a Grand Cherokee or a modern Taurus (okay stop throwing the eggs and tomatoes). Reasoning for the Taurus is I prefer FWD for bad weather and I like the fuel economy and the new ones look pretty good.

my Challenger is a Daily driver for me, my wife drives our Yota FJ. But due to our expanding family anyday now, I'm off to test drive a Ford Edge tonight, and don't worry I won't be trading off the Challenger. We can get 3 seats across the FJ, but I wouldn't mind garaging the Challenger for winter.

The Edge is very nice. Last year when my father was looking at a new company car, he looked at one of those and if the price would have been within his range, he would have taken it.

stevelegel, it sounds as though you more weekend cars than daily drivers. I guess you need one for Saturday and one for Sunday. Glad you have nice cars for your weekend ones.

07 Impala (company car). My wife drives the Challenger daily since she has a shorter commute (and she parks her Mustang convertible in the winter). If the snow is really bad we swap because she hates rwd in it.

Well V8 Lite, since I haven't talked to you yet, I welcome you to the site.

Yeah, we have that generation of Impalas for our fleets at work. They're okay.

I must say I'm impressed that your able to get around in a RWD car in Canada. BTW, what year and model Mustang does your wife have?

Thanks! I don't get to the site as much as I'd like because of work.
The snow tires and traction control make it passable, but if we go out together and its crappy out we take the Impala.
She has a screaming yellow '06 V6 with the pony package. She doesn't like the GT body kit. I installed CAI, Magna Flow muffler, Katzkins with yellow inserts and black Bullet rims.

RLSH...I do get teased. With a stable of cool cars that I prefer to drive on nice days, it is the Ranger that is my workhorse...reliable and comfortable. My perenniel New Year's resolution is "to drive the cool cars more"

My DD is a 2001 Dodge dakota, and during the summer it's my motorcycle 08 Kawaski Concours.

Every once in a great while I break out my challenger, I don't know how much longer the motor is going to last, it's waiting on a new engine hopefully this summer

challenger is my fun nice weather car and comes out mostly on weekends.

DDs are 98 explorer sport 4wd, 05 escape AWD and an 85 toyota MR2 that
is my gas mileage ( average 28 city) queen and beater but she is getting tired
and has become quite incontinent (multiple leaks) and may have to depart soon.
