    You ever not like a particular car brand and then unwillingly realize you do?

    I have always liked old GM...a bodies, f bodies,etc...never liked old mopars..at all..in March 2019 I picked up a 69 dart for a lemons rally and just picked up a 68 valiant. I guess I like old Mopar a bodies...I think it’s because they are cheap compared to the more popular models and how everything is very rudimentary..

    Always had a Toyota 4wd of some sort. I didn't like their newer stuff and bought a Nissan instead. Now I like a bunch of Nissan vehicles.

      I used to assume BMWs were a bitch to work on and expensive to own, then my daughter talked me into a 325 for her first car and I drove it and worked on it for 6 months before I gave it to her and it was actually reasonable on all counts and a blast to drive.

          BMW’s. Never in my life would I ever have thought I would drive a bmw. I’m a carburetated engine kind of guy. This spring there was a post on a site who’s name shall not be repeated on cheap high performance cars and the 335D got brought up. Well a high performance diesel car is right up my wheelhouse. I was able to use the I have 10,000 gallon of diesel in the back yard to get my wife on board.

          It’s a absolute blast to drive. I can’t wait to get it tuned and deleted for a extra 100+ hp and 175+ torque.

          It’s sad I like it so much im actually looking for a 535d for a little bigger one to haul the family around in.

          I forgot to add that when I’m not driving the fucker gets 34+ miles to the gallon.

            I'm not brand biased except Kia/Hyundai. If I'm going to buy a shitbox, it's going to be a japanese <$5000 car. Couldn't spend $20k for a new one and much better used options.

            Everything else is fair game, just for the driving experience.

              I never thought I would become a Hyundai/Kia fan. My wife's first car was a 2000 accent, which we would still be driving if it wasn't for an unfortunate rock slide incident. Her current car is a 2011 Hyundai Tucson, i have also owned a 2010 Elantra and currently drive a 2014 Accent hatchback manual trans as my daily driver. Wife is starting to look for a bigger SUV to replace her Tucson, so naturally we are leaning toward the mew Hyundai Palisade.

                As far as trucks go, I'd always considered myself to be a Chevy guy, but I've had far more Fords.

                  How about thinking a particular vehicle would be awesome till you get one and it’s the bane of your existence? I’m living that hell currently.

                      I didn’t think I’d like Nissan. But my chick came with a 2015 Xterra 4x4. It’s been crazy reliable for someone who wasn’t taught to maintain stuff. I would have another one now. She bought it as a lease turn in with like 5,000 miles on it, goes 11 to 15 thousand miles between oil changes and it’s rocking 120K now. Only issues it’s had was from hitting a deer at 60 in it.

                        Thankfully no. But I’m currently driving a 16 GMC 2500 4x4 6.0 6L80 gasser. I could fill a page in the engineering that makes you want to punch babies thread on this thing. All the Chevy fans brag about how nice the ride is, and I truly hate the fuckin thing. Not like “lol I say I hate it but really it’s fine” hate it. I mean I genuinely loathe this piece of shit.

                          Life is too short to drive something you hate. Sell the pile and buy something you will like.

                            Neither did I. I inherited a Kia (along with the payments) when my MIL died. That little fucker has been reliable and turning in 40mpg on my commute. Maybe I'm used to driving shit boxes, but that Kia is comfortable to drive on the highway, and has comfort features I'm not used in my other vehicles. I'm now a Kia fan.

                            I just can't see getting a GM due to their multiple bail outs, and Dodge/Ram for similar. I have a 1st gen CTD, and it suffers from the awesome Cryco QC issues with drivetrain being reliable and that's it's only redeeming feature. Don't think I'd buy a new Dodge.

                              Honda Element, was the dumbest car ever made and never liked them. Drove a buddies and found out the crap you can haul in one and handles like a go-cart. Now own one and it's my DD. I'm not in love with it but way better then I thought it was.
