Talking Daily Driver Thread

I looked around the forum and didn't find any other thread, so i figured i would start one. I know some drive their miata everyday but I'm curious to see what everyone chooses to drive daily.

my current DD is a 2014 Mazda CX-5 GT AWD, it has 17x8 +35 Konig Oversteer Opal with the 245-65-17 Falken Wild Peaks A/T3W Tires, and a Yakima roof rack. Stock otherwise

It's currently for sale:

thank you, its certainly not living the typical life of a CX-5 haha, i was working with a company to build a 2" lift kit but after 6-8 months of working with them, they just stopped responding to me.

Another TSX owner. 06 auto and I love it. I wanted a manual but wasn't willing to pay the $1500 premium to get the 6 speed.

My daily is a 2007 Honda Fit with a manual. Not pretty, nor fast, nor luxurious, but very efficient in every sense of the term. Fuel efficiency is expected, but space efficiency is where it really shines.

When it's not snowing...
And when it does snow, I need to haul stuff or carry more than two other people!

No can do, I'll be buried in it. But before that, I'll be taking off on it in an overlanding surfing trip along the Pacific Ocean to... Panama!

Sounds like fun, but I need to have this thing sold by Wednesday.

I'd still be driving come Wednesday if we went this route...

In all fairness, never more than 3 peeps total, in the truck. But, when I do carry two more passengers, I'm driving, so how they fit in the truck is their problem!

Where in Cali are ya? I'm driving to L.A. in the Taco, to visit old friends, and buy a surf board.

Pajeros are cool, but Tacos are AWESOME!
