First, if the government is ordering our family to only be allowed (how gracious of them) one vehicle, I would know that I'm not in the United States of America anymore... or maybe just moved to California.

Second, I would know that Liberals were in control of the House, Senate and White House.

That aside, we would buy a Porsche Cayenne Turbo S. They are exquisite. $3.00/$4.00 gas doesn't bother us... we are not living on the edge like so many others. So, 12-15 mpgs wouldn't bother me in the least (heck, we'd be going from buying gas for three cars to just one).

The Cayenne is everything all in one... extremely fast, handles magnificently, looks like a million bucks, feels like a million bucks, has plenty of cargo room, built like a tank, much improved quality, terrific dealer ambiance (Porsche of Orlando is top-notch), and it has cachet up the ying-yang.

Higher maintenance costs? So what... only one car, not three.

Higher insurance? So what... only one car, not three.

If I could justify spending $120,000, my wife might be driving one now. But to me, the Cayenne Turbo S is the perfect all-around vehicle to satisfy all our needs and wants!

One vehicle? Honda Element. We only keep the Accord around if we need to carry more than the two of us cause the E is usually stuffed with mountain bikes and camping gear

91 Accord LX 213,000 miles
07 Element LX 38,000 miles

Hmmm

This is an easy one...

Id love to build this from scratch.
5dr Civic or Accord hatch / wagon design for Europe (TSX), with hatch or wagon. In deisel or gas fuel, under 3200lbs, no e nannies, no sat nav / nav system, no leather, no sunroof, no awd, no esc, no computer taking control, with a 2.4ltr 4cycl or 3ltr 6cycl, 6MT, with cycl shutoff.

Light weight, quick front driven and fast.

As for outside of the Honda realm:
Subbie Legacy Spec B wagon...
Mazda 6 hatch / wagon last and current gen...
2010 BMW 5 series HATCH!
E class AMG wagon..

I could definately.. be happy with any ONE.


Accordsforall

Current: 2.3ltr I4, 00 Accord 4dr SE, Red ext / Tan int, current mil 197k. Top mi per 17.1 tank 500 Ave 28.mpg. I also do 138.6mi. a day, 12k every 85 days.

My 1st Love: 2.2ltr I4, 4dr 92 Accord LX, Grey ext / Red int. Passed away with 231.150.4 2 Days before Xmas 2006. Top miles per 17gal tank 405.

The PRELUDE to Life ACCORDing to the VIGORous and LEGENDary Accord rules, all else blows.

I'd want a sporty sedan. I like the 2006/2007 Accord sedan EX V6 6MT with navigation, now add LSD and it's good. Decent gas mileage, decent handling, still got a manual, some nice luxury features, decent space, etc.

Or

A 2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5GT Limited wagon with 5MT(actually, let's swap the 6MT from the spec.B in to that), with black/charcoal leather interior. In either Regal Blue Pearl or Garnet Red Pearl. Very sleek looking car, fun to drive, sleeper status, grocery getter. Such a fun car to drive! Has nice luxury features, AWD, turbo, 250hp/250tq, huge moonroof, etc.

'03 Sapphire Blue Pearl Accord 2dr EX V6 6MT w/Navi (184k miles) 18% tint, HFP wheels, backup camera coming soon!
'92 red Geo Metro LSi conv. (185k miles)

If only one vehicle per household, it would be a Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. Now from what I saw so far I do like the 2015 Subaru Outback and 2015 Nissan Murano but they are not on sale yet. I never was an SUV person but there have been plenty of times where stuff just doesn't fit in the TL.

Pickup for me and SUV for the wife. I'd go either Tacoma/Ridgeline or F-150 depending on my parking situation.

I just returned from a cruise around Asia. If I had to have just one vehicle it would be a Toyota Vellfire. It is the first van I have seen that says "Man" not socker mom. It has been in Asia since '09 and still in production, but sadly only RHD. The loaded version is a 3.5 V-6, features really cool passenger reclining seats, awesome LED's and front end styling that doesn't suck like most of the other "me too" vans. I think it's also long enough to put a 4' x 8' board in the back with the seats folded. You can see a little if you search "Vellfire", but the locals with some added trim pieces were even better. And while waiting for various tour pick ups, many "guys" noticed them and recognized hot styling and FEATURES.
