    Letís see your rides! 🚘🚲🏍

    Hey everyone! It feels weird to be posting again. I missed posting here.

    Not sure if this thread has been done yet (I seem to remember a similar one ages ago ) but since weíre all in lockdown, I thought itíd be fun to see your rides. Whether you have one with four wheels or two, letís see Ďem shall we?

    Here are some pics of mine which I took today after a clean. Itís a 2016 Toyota Aygo and Iíve had her since last March.

    Cool ride KS! Nice blue colour.

    I might post a picture of my bicycle at some point, since that's my official ride(yay for flat dutch roads).
    I drive my partner's Mitsubishi Colt sometimes, but not very often so I don't really consider it my ride.

    Thanks STM! I changed it last year from a larger car which was a diesel model as I didnít do enough mileage a year to make having a diesel fuelled car worthwhile so I went back to petrol. Plus I only really need the car to get to and from work and this car is perfect. Itís economical, small and easy to park, whilst also being nice to look at.

    As for roads being small in the UK, the country lanes can be narrow. The motorways arenít as wide as the highways in the US either.

    Your car looks nice! I like it. And every car looks loads better once clean. I try to clean mine at least once every 2 weeks, weather dependant of course.

    I really like your car KS, it's a lovely colour! Reminds me of a purple one I saw when I was at a Toyota dealership and I wanted it

    I'm now an old man, so it seems only fitting I have an old man car! Behold my 2004 Toyota Corolla T3 VVTi, easily the cheapest to run and most reliable car I've ever owned. It's got air con and large cup holders, which at my age is kind of all I want. Though a bit more acceleration wouldn't be a bad thing, it is a bit...slow XD

    Haha, thanks! I like the purple ones too, but that would mean Iíd need to upgrade and I canít afford that yet. Plus blue is my favourite colour and Iíve always wanted a blue car so yeah.

    I like your car actually. Itís a Toyota and theyíre good cars! My parents had one for years, and my current car is my third Toyota (I had two Yarisí before my Aygo). Theyíre so reliable like you said. I actually switched back to a Toyota from a Mazda as I had nothing but trouble with it.

    Oh, and welcome back! Glad you could finally log in.

    I had a 2002 Corolla up until this past fall, and that was the best goddamn car ever. I cried real tears letting go of it, and every time I see one on the road still I get a pang that I gave up on it. I wanted to own that car for 25 years but it was in 2 pretty major accidents and unlike yours, the air conditioning died about 5 years ago, made summers pretty wretched. But I managed to book it past other cars in it, my beige chariot!

    I have a perfectly boring, base model monotone Volkswagen Jetta now. It's fine, I like the steering. My crappy old car had nicer features tbh, but it rolls from place A to place B, with working air.

    But my god did I love my Corolla, the car of my heart! Toyotas are the best, even if I don't have one right now.

    Aw man, yeah it always sucks that the cars you grow most attached to are the ones that are the most unreliable

    The car I had before this one was a 2005 Renault Clio 1.6 16v Dynamique, it was like driving a bottle rocket. The acceleration was insane for only a 1600cc engine, but the car only weighed 500kg so yeah. But because it was French from the mid-2000s it was so unreliable. I had it 5 years and it was just a complete money pit. Wheel bearings kept disintegrating, the brake lines kept eroding, the sunroof leaked, oh and the exhaust fell off It was truly painful maintaining that car, but dang I do miss it sometimes, it was so much fun to drive!

    My Corolla (Mr T as my dad calls him (T for Toyota XD)) is the polar opposite, really cheap and reliable but somewhat dull and boring to drive. I am pretty sold on Toyotas as a brand though now, I want one of the new Corollas or maybe a C-HR next but it'll be a long time before I can afford one of those
