What means of transportation to you use to get from Point A to Point B? Legs, scooter, bus, train, mom's car, your own? A jetpack or hovercraft, perhaps? Or do you remain holed up in your basement and refuse to leave your house because the crushing paranoia of running into Ben Affleck riding around in his banana yellow H3 is too much?

I'm the proud owner of a sporty little red Mazda 3. Best car I've ever owned.

Additional topic: Previous cars you've owned, if any. Ready, go.

My current car is a 2002 Toyota Corolla. It's my CarBro and runs like a dream. Just finished paying it off :love:

Before that I had a 1994 Chrysler LeBaron which promptly fell apart on me.

I use the bus and my silver 2009 Hyundai Accent most often. Biking and walking when weather and time permit as well.

My last car was a red 2008 Hyundai Accent. I wish my current one was red.

I still use my first car: a 1995 Lexus ES300. I love it and will not be able to get a car that drives nearly as nice when I finally have to turn it in.

Unfortunately I can't walk very many places in my current area. But if I can, I do walk a lot.

I have a 99 blue Chevy Cav, which has proven to be sturdy as fuck. I walk a lot of places though, seeing as I live downtown.

My current car is a white '99 Ford Explorer. The thing sucks on gas but I love it, my car's a bro.

Before this I had a '92 Nissan Sentra which was a POS.

Currently public transport but I'm going to see if I can't cycle the 6.2 miles to work each day (and the 6.2 miles home each day) to save myself a lot of cash.

Haha, good luck with that, Steve.

I drive a '00 Buick Regal. It's really nice and cozy, and drives like new! Barnaby Jonesss

Before that I owned a '94 Nissan Altima. It was my first car, and it died on me a month after paying it off. Rest in peace, little Taargus Taargus. :(

this is one of the things i miss most about college. that and late-night food (which kind of goes hand-in-hand)

if I want a midnight/2am/4am snack now i'm stuck with what's in the kitchen so I don't wake my parents by going out to the no places that are open. (there is a 24 hour grocery store about 20 minutes away)

anyway, on topic, I drive a red 2011 Honda Civic. I used to drive a minivan (2001 honda odyssey) but it didn't want to go very far past 180k. I love my car though and was very sad when I got rear-ended in March and made my car not pretty anymore

I have a car that does it's job. I really should get a new one since I have had mine for almost nine years now.

Made it from New Jersey to South Carolina using only $50 for gas. :kakapo:

Oh, well, you and I talked like a month ago. You'd given your mum your car, and had gotten a new one. Maybe you haven't gotten it yet. My bad.

Oh no, she bought a new one! A...Forester? I forget. But I haven't had a chance to upgrade.

I drive a 2007 Carolla that I bought new shortly after I got married. I like to ride my bike if the weather's good.

Distance isn't the issue with the idea of cycling. Traffic on the roads kinda is (the route is quite treacherous and always busy) and the climate is shit too since I live in the UK. On a static bike I'd cover 5 miles in about 20 mins so in theory if the ground was flat it'd be 30 or so mins ride. However, the terrains a bitch.
