    Re: If you were going to drive one car forever….

    It would be something like our current Jeep Grand Cherokee. Goes almost everywhere, tows a lot, comfortable, really good highway cruiser. Spacious enough for four adults. Kind of a “Swiss Army Knife” of cars. Probably something similar from BMW or Porsche would do the trick.

    If money was no object, it would probably be a Bentley, but as of now I am going to drive my 2014 Buick LaCrosse into the ground before ever selling it. It is one of the last real 4 door sedans and scary fast and comfy.

    Re: If you were going to drive one car forever….

    I've owned Honda, BMW, Audi, Acura, Lexus and American brands. The cars I have always ended up keeping the longest - and have been most satisfied with OVERALL - have been Honda. There is just something about the ergonomics, usability, and balanced drive that I find pleasing overall. Although others have been superior in one way or another, none do so many things well as my Honda's have.
