For a Daily Driver , I would have to go with a Subaru wrx, or anything awd turbo 4cylinder.

I'm a really big fan of the wrx. I think its a well made car. Everyone talking about 70k plus cars as daily drivers are crazy and either 1 cant afford one, 2 dont understand the concept of money, 3 dont know any better. in my opinion a daily driver should have maximum performance for dollar. i'm all about performance , and reliability. and awd and 4cylinder turbo means performance. but the subarus are reliable well made cars. wrx all the way for best daily driver.


Having traction in the rain, snow, or dry conditions depends on the tires. I could have a RWD car on snow tires and not have a single problem. Shoot, I spun first gear, and spun 2nd gear at 20mph when it snowed drivnig the Teg all because of my sport tires. Given if I had snow tires, I'd be going faster.

Turbo just means more problems. I mean come on, if something malfunctions, you'll look at two different results. Running rich or running lean. On top of that, you have a 4wd system, that's more parts that can break. It'll be more practical to have a FWD NA car to daily beat.

So the original poster fail miserably. My mission is complete. Also although not a car, bikes are awesome when the weather is nice enough to ride. They don't work as a daily driver because conditions are not always fit, but 50 mpg is awesome.


I think you just failed at reading comprehension.

Grammar, spelling, and punctuation (or lack thereof) aside, I'm sure the OP's intent was to steer people away from mentioning exotics like Ferraris. So it probably would have been a better idea to just go with the topic like most everyone else did, instead of attacking him.


Honestly man, I enjoy being a douche bag to little kids who don't know the first thing about cars and proceed to say they drive a Ferrari when they can't even drive. I did fail to a put a ed on failed, which is ironic, I quite understand that. I however fail to see where my spelling is incorrect. Furthermore my punctuation is fine according to Microsoft Word. While not the most rigourous test of my ability to punctuate senstences, I didn't have any run on sentences nor do I think anyone with a good command of the English language had an problem with understanding my statement. Perhaps I shouldn't have done a personal attack. I can't really argue against that one, but I've made my bed, and honestly, I don't really care.

the civic is definitely the best one out there but in my opinion any 4 door sedan or 2 door coupe is fine with me.

Jesus wow, ever heard of a period?

FYI, drivers in general aren't always the best.

But yeah, Skyline as a daily driver = fail. The new Accords, personally, are a step up from the previous generation. They look more luxurious than they use to be. I don't see anything wrong about it.


G35 is a Skyline and isn't a failure just because it didn't live up to the previous generations. It's a pretty good DD imo. Now, if we're talking about the GTR, R35, it's a failure for DD!

Wasn't a G35 called a Skyline 3000GT in Japan?

And Flintstones Car is still the best for daily driving. No gas and VERY reliable...except the driver.

ok when this post was made, i'd imagine fwd na to be the norm , what fun is that , deep down we all know the best daily driver is CHEAP as hell, and gets good gas mileage, and the ONLYYYYYY cars that meet that are shitty little 4cylinder, if that, NA cars with FWD , DUH we know this, they have ruled the econo market for decades. but why doesnt everyone drive them, cause people have wants, tastes, style, heavy feet , the usual. the best daily driver, should give you excellent warranty, excellent gas mileage, and not break the bank. that is the optimal ideal dd for MOST people. who the hell cares about most people, i like speed, , and performance, RWD SNOW, tires, once again, thats the most retarded thing ive heard. RWD , nor FWD , compete with AWD for traction in bad terrain or weather, what century are you in , fuck tires, awd works regardless, and its a matter of weight transitioning , and drive train, awd pulls and pushes , as opposed to one. RWD or FWD does not compete with AWD ,. its a matter of physics, and double the working surface area, so each tire works more efficiently. sureeeee go take ur mustang, or your bmw/benz with your snow tires, in 10 inches of snow, i doubt it would PERFORM the same as an awd car. it will drive DUH, but your not moving the same way as an awder, the rear end gets loss, thats a wrap, you have to shift early, kill power, blah blah blah , with awd, its on another level, and yes it has more moving parts, with well made cars its not a problem

An everyday car means everyday, it gets you from point A to point B.


but why doesnt everyone drive them, cause people have wants, tastes, style, heavy feet , the usual.


Because you have people who ignore specs and normally buys stuff on
A: It's cool looking
B: Who makes it


the best daily driver, should give you excellent warranty, excellent gas mileage, and not break the bank. that is the optimal ideal dd for MOST people. who the hell cares about most people, i like speed, , and performance, RWD SNOW, tires, once again, thats the most retarded thing ive heard. RWD , nor FWD , compete with AWD for traction in bad terrain or weather


Who cares about most people? The manufactuer and the government. Who cares about you? No one. If manufacturers cared about you, they'd be bankrupt.


what century are you in

The 21st century.


fuck tires, awd works regardless


SIKE. Tires makes or breaks the car's handling and performance. Go out there on drag radials in the snow and I'll like to see you go somewhere.


and its a matter of weight transitioning , and drive train, awd pulls and pushes , as opposed to one. RWD or FWD does not compete with AWD ,. its a matter of physics, and double the working surface area, so each tire works more efficiently.


Like I said, tires make or break the performance. It's also simple logic that if the tires don't grip, the car doesn't move.


sureeeee go take ur mustang, or your bmw/benz with your snow tires, in 10 inches of snow, i doubt it would PERFORM the same as an awd car. it will drive DUH, but your not moving the same way as an awder, the rear end gets loss, thats a wrap, you have to shift early, kill power, blah blah blah , with awd, its on another level, and yes it has more moving parts, with well made cars its not a problem


Go out there with your AWD car on summer tires, thinking you the shit cause you go AWD, lose control and bitch that it's impossible for that to happen because it's AWD.

Tires is one of the essential parts of the car that makes it perform the way it does.

Volvo 240, legendary Swedish brick engineering right there, it'll last longer than cockroaches after a nuclear fallout, it'll carry 5 people in comfort everyday.

a Volvo p1800 hold the current world record for the highest mileage too.
