Daily is 2011 Honda Crosstour with the 4w drive which was tested for the first time yesterday, hubby, who has much experience driving 4w drive trucks was pleasantly surprised at how it handled in the snow.
Tow vehicle is a 1996 suburban 4x4 2500, just now reaching 200k, love this truck but worried she is starting to show her age but I am determined to keep her going as long as I can.

For drivers, my DH and I both drive 2006 Nissan Titans that we bought new. We have both owned a Nissan p/u of some type since 1983. Can't beat them for dependability and longevity (our trucks average 250,000-275,000 miles before we sell them).
For hauling I use my '96 Ford F350 Powerstroke dually. Bought it new and it currently has 194,000 miles on it (not even broke in yet).

I have a 2009 Mazda 3. I absolutely love it. I just got it this past May. Before that I had a 2001 Jetta. I also really loved that car, but it was time for a new one and I am so very happy with my Mazda!
'12 Ford Fiesta in red. I hated how they looked until we got a screaming deal on one. SO cheap to drive (Cost me $33 to fill up on Monday.) Knock wood hasn't had any problems yet. My dog fits nicely in the backseat.
I was driving a 2002 Toyota Sequoia (got sideswiped by a semi-truck & did too much damage to have it repaired at 197,000 miles). LOVED that truck Crazy as it was, we got a 2010 BMW X5 to replace it for cheaper than a comparable Sequoia. The newer Sequoias are giant (too giant for me) and insanely expensive! My hauler is a 2003 Ford F350 crew cab long bed (yes, the newer model Sequoias felt even bigger than my giant truck!).

You know what's sad? I want my old '89 Ford Escort with 230+K miles on it back. I got it from my mother, drove it for a few years and then sold it to my sister to pay off my mare. She fixed some problems with it and now it drives like a top. I want it back! LOL! It doesn't have A/C, though, so that idea might change in June.
I drive a 98 Escort wagon with 140K+ miles on it. It's a manual transmission, gets 30-35 mpg no matter where I'm driving, and will haul a whole lot of stuff. He's also pretty awesome in the snow. I love my little car, although he's not so comfortable for long trips
