Inspired by Narf's post: It actually makes good sense...we've all likely driven cars from friends and family. What's bugged you about them? Here's my list in no particular order.

2000 Isuzu Rodeo
+ High seating position
- Broken gas gauge, absolutely terrible ride...stiff enough to rip fillings out yet bouncy. Shitty interior.

1997 Toyota Avalon XL
+ Nicely finished interior, easy steering, comfortable seats
- Owned by a utter and complete wanker, boring to drive

2004 Ford Windstar Limited
+ Same as the Isuzu
- Uninspiring in every possible way, super low to the ground rear seats designed for children and children alone.

2005 Dodge Stratus SXT 4 cylinder sedan
+ decent ride, ice cold AC, attractive styling + simple controls
- Daimler decontented interior plastics, touchy as fuck throttle makes it hard to drive smoothly.

2005 Kia Sportage LX V6 4WD
+ smooth powertrain, excellently done folding seat mechanism, nice looks
-slow, lack of keyless entry, touchy throttle, tinted glass = crap rear visibility at night

2005 Hyundai XG350 L
+ excellent build quality, frameless doors are always cool, dynamics that i'd love if I was a 65 year old living in The Villages
- I'm not 65 and living in The Villages, awkward styling cues

2000 Chevrolet Blazer
+ Runs
- GM cheapness abounds, felt insubstantial on the highway: expansion joints caused ripples

2011 Chevrolet Malibu 4 cylinder
+ Simple styling inside and out, firm controlled ride.
- Typical GM bullshit: Interior fit & finish falls short, lack of details like a center armrest/headrest and grab handles. Poor visibility in every direction, touchy throttle

2011 Hyundai Sonata GLS 2.4
+ Satellite radio, wide range of seat/wheel adjustment, attractive interior
- Styling's definitely going to be dated, rear visibility is disappointing, not particularly inspiring.

2002 Chevrolet Impala
+ nice on the highway, seating position
- broken gas gauge left me stranded in summer, shit interior, complicated aftermarket radio.
