mines a daily driver, 60 mile round trip to work and back. don't drive it in the snow though ,but as soon as the roads are plowed it's back on the road. best part of my day is the drive in and the drive home from work. with drive home getting the edge as a little better than in.

The '84 SE 4 speed (on the right) is a daily driver since new in May '84. It has about 377,000 kilometers (234,000 miles) on it now. I've fixed a few things...
I got the red '86 2.5L 5 speed coupe in Feb 2011 to share daily driver duties with the '84. It was a very solid car, ready for mostly cosmetic TLC and after about a year and a half, an engine. (Swapped in an '87 2.5L).
I got the Formula 5 speed in Mar 2008 in showroom condition with 5,200 kilometers (3230 miles) on it. Couldn't pass up a 'new' Fiero! It's used a couple of times a week when the weather's good & for car shows.
All three are driven all year excluding wet and salty winter conditions.

88 has been a daily driver since January 2012 up until January of this year. 165 miles to work and back home every day, (M-F), plus additional work related and personal driving. I didn't intentionally take it when it was snowing, but did get caught a few times. That was a treat. Much rather use the 4X4 Silverado. Been pretty reliable with it's quirks. I originally bought the Duke with 5 speed for gas mileage when I started the new job. Unbeknown to me, I never imagined of 'clutching it' 14 miles around the beltway in stop & go traffic. Went through 3 throw out bearings in 5 years. Last one turned 'BLUE'. I do go a different way now but still end up in stop and go traffic. It's time to move on which is why I bought the Cobalt and am planning on selling the Fiero.

The '84 SE I owned '92-2010 was a daily driver in all kinds of weather, (83K-198K), that's how I learned about understear on slick roads. The only time I had trouble with snow was driving in too deep, in heavy wet snow, or re-frozen ruts. It's hard to get anywhere with no weight on the tires! Since I'm self-employed, my current 2.5 5spd base coupe was an every-other-day driver until I ran over the cement block, (which busted all sorts of things loose and caved in and punctured the gas tank). This is the one I'm trying to replace at the moment. Any news about 4cyl 5spds for sale would be greatly apreciated, and boy, do I have a good parts car for same! Many happy Returns of the Day, Victor

From December 2001 to January 2017. The Fieros I had were daily drivers. Spring, summer, fall, winter.

Ditto here, and this Sunday sounds like it just might be the first one since New Year's day I will be taking it out!
They say it is going to be 58 and sunny, but we all know how that goes, it will probably snow a foot or more.
