Wouldn’t work for us, despite my wife being a stay at home mom. I couldn’t and wouldn’t do that to her.
I'm married but feel kinda the same, tired of having two vehicles for myself, can only drive one at a time after all, and only one of them fits in the garage.I'm a single dude and getting sick of maintaining two vehicles so will be downsizing to one. I have an SUV and a RWD coupe. The SUV would seem like the natural choice, but it's getting old and the coupe is much newer + better on gas so I could see myself driving it to the ground over the next 5-10 years with minimal maintenance.
So the plan will be to DD the coupe. I think with winter tires it should mostly get me around the Canadian winters ok. I'll get a hitch and roof rack to carry the bikes/snowboard/cargo box so I'll still be able to go on adventures with it. The main concern is the lack of ground clearance which sucks if I want to go deeper into nature. Will definitely miss the feeling of invincibility of a 4x4.
Similar situation for us. Minor adjustments to our lifestyle and schedules would easily allow us to downsize to one car though. We know of a few people who have done the same and it has worked out fine for them.I'm married but feel kinda the same, tired of having two vehicles for myself, can only drive one at a time after all, and only one of them fits in the garage.
As much as I prefer driving my sedan an SUV/CUV has more ground clearance. 9 months of the year that's of no gain. Right now it's rather nice!
Same here. I drive my truck to work. She would feel trapped without her car.Wouldn’t work for us, despite my wife being a stay at home mom. I couldn’t and wouldn’t do that to her.
