The other day I was thinking about how trouble free my car has been. Wondering about what others have found to be their dependable daily driver.
If you can, post your daily driver info & photos.
I'll start with mine.
My daily driver, besides the Fiero is a 2010 Hyundai Elantra GLS, which was my mothers car. When we bought the car for her, it was a used 1 year "executive driven" vehicle (what ever that means).
It's what I would call a non descript car, not particularly great looking, just a good car. It came well optioned, sunroof, premium sound, sat radio. Is a very quiet car, the AC is nice and cold. Gets 34 mpg

My "daily driver" (if you can call it that) is a 2019 Honda CR-V. Not the fanciest car by any means but it's reliable. I'm leasing it. I like where I live and like my job. About (2) years ago, the rumor was that my job was going to be moving to another location about (60) miles (each way). I had a (10) year old Buick Enclave (which I loved) that had a little over 200k miles on it and got a whopping 18 mpg on the highway. Figured I'd better get something new(er) and better on gas. Fast forward to the pandemic. Work decided that we weren't going to move afterall and then allowed us to work from home. That's where I've been the past year. (That's also the reason why I added the quotation marks and parenthises above.) I now have a grand total of 3k miles on the Honda. I drive her once a week to the grocery store and/or pharmacy. (I've got all sorts of medical issues.) Once my lease is out, I'm going to give the car back to Honda and buy an older and larger mid size or full size SUV (i.e. Enclave, Tahoe, Suburban or similar). I don't care about the gas mileage. It probably won't have all the tech I have in my Honda but I like bigger SUVs. (Maybe a full size, crew cab pick 'em up truck.) I've seen some pretty good examples for $12k or under but I'm still looking.
I have a 2017 Hyundai Tucson. I bought it new and the dealer has free oil changes which he does every six months using synthetic oil. It came with Bluetooth, Sirrus radio, 6 speed auto, and many standard features. I get an average 29 mpg and this has been mostly around town with all the current travel restrictions.
My daily driver is a Chevy Cobalt..... Not really exciting but at 250K miles it still drives like new. Very easy to work on; neatest and cleanest oil change ever. Last year I replaced the injectors which probably took a half hour tops. I probably could have done it faster if I was in a hurry.
Unfortunately, salt will kill it one of these years.
This is my daily driver…. 94 Toyota Pickup with the 22re & 5 speed, Approx 440,000 miles so far and it doesn’t burn oil. I have to admit though, it is ready for a timing chain. Runs great, good gas mileage, easy to work on too. When you look up “reliable engine” in the dictionary you see this….. Kit
