There are definitely some interesting "others" in this thread. My other is a jeep Wrangler Sahara.
I always had a wrangler as a kid. But as an adult, I couldn't live with one as a full time daily driver. With that said, the latest generation wrangler (jk) is more civilized. Mainly b/c of the longer wheelbase, disc brakes were finally added to the rear axle, and more of them available with better gearing (411).
The Jeep serves it's purpose in the winter. I put the hardtop on, and the jeep is used 75% of the time, as my oil burner rocks summer tires all year. and it gets cold in philly.
in the summer, I put the rag top on and use the jeep for light trailriding/camping trips and driving around our mtn property.
also for hauling a lightweight canoe/kayak trailer.
Wife has an Audi A3 2.0T, but it's getting old. She's looking at a TDI now, possibly Passat or Touareg.
