It's weird that no one ever talks about cars ๐Ÿš— on here isn't it?

I mean, I know weโ€™re all sandal-wearing, oatmeal cardigan, lefty metropolitan elites and that but of all the everyday things that Iโ€™d imagine a whole bunch of DiSsers do on the regular driving and cars are probably the least discussed thing here

why?

maybe a poll would shed more light on it

  • I have a driving license
  • I own (or have regular access to) a car
  • I have no driving license
  • I do not own (or have regular access to) a car

bonus questions;
what do you drive?
what is your dream car?

Really like driving and miss it, but donโ€™t give a flying fuck about cars.

Have had the following:

Rover 200
Ford Mondeo
Hyundai i10

Looked particularly ridiculous in the latter as it was tiny, but didnโ€™t care.

Not sure Iโ€™ll ever own a car again, too expensive and too shitty to the environment. Reaaaaaaaally miss driving round nice countryside and tory villages on a sunny Spring day though.

Had a full licence since I was 18 but never owned a car, just hire one whenever we need one and get a nice clean car without all the faff

Not really seeing as 99% of us live in London and thereโ€™s no need for cars here

Currently drive a Seat Leon Ecomotive. Itโ€™s a company car and the lease is up in March, at which point Iโ€™ll either buy it off them or get a similar midrange diesel hatchback, but preferably a Euro VI one.

I used to want a Nissan 350Z but can you imagine how much of a twat Iโ€™d look in one of those

electric cars are gonna come down in price sooner or later though

if there were trains everywhere and they were nationalised & cheap Iโ€™d be 100% for a 100% ban on cars

Reckon thereโ€™ll be a push towards hybrids first, the electric tech hasnโ€™t matured as quickly as people were hoping.

it would mature a lot quicker with some hard environmental policy penalties/incentives

Drive a tiny Nissan that I bought on insurance when I wrote my last car off. Hardly uses any petrol though which is a bonus.

Have a Mazda 3 - itโ€™s fast and red and I like it a lot. Bought it because I was doing a lot of motorway miles but now Iโ€™m mostly flying or training so itโ€™s become a bit redundant. Itโ€™s not built for driving around Glasgow in 3rd gear either - itโ€™s made for motorway driving. Iโ€™m in the sweet spot of having paid the car off but also collect a company car allowance every month so itโ€™s effectively free money (which I should totally be putting aside to pay for the next car).

Have to learn to drive. Parents are getting older and given the shitty nature of public transport and the fact that they live in rural Ireland means that I need some means of getting to them and moving them around. Fucking dreading the cost of it all and it is so fucking damaging environmentally. Fuck a combustion engine.
