Looking for a new car or truck, and it will be my daily driver. I commonly drive a lot for work and school, so i want something that can do that while also having the ability to drive on the beach. What kind of cars do you use, or recommend?

Well you can get the new lamborghini "huracan sterrato"...
Offroad:

2023-lamborghini-huracan-sterrato134-646

2023-lamborghini-huracan-sterrato141-646

Onroad:

2023-lamborghini-huracan-sterrato127-646

 

Oh and the paint is a phased color shift.

 

The 602hp should have no problems pulling a small trailer once you get a custom hitch... Don't worry about the low profile with the dust and sand getting into the engine's air intake, that is the small hump you see on the back center of the roof.

LOL.

 

Otherwise, Toyota 4runner.

 

There's got to be something odd about the car market. I've had a new 4runner for 2 1/2 years. Now Smithtown Toyota is keen to buy it back. Riverhead Toyota has asked twice. Production problems?

Resale value, combined with "production problems" (which isn't really a production problem of the vehicle as much as it is a production of subcomponents that are used to make it). They would love to give you $5000 - 8000 less than going market rate on a trade-in, as they get not only your sale of the new one at the current rate, but also the resale of your old one at the inflated rate as well.

 

Infiniti was doing the same to me when my car had a check-engine light come up saying, well, we could fix it.... but we would buy it back from you for blah, blah, blah and get you into a new one.

4Runner or a Tacoma if you want the bed. 4Runner has everything you need with unlimited amount of fishing/beach driving related modifications but even stock will be more than adequate. There's even an air mattress that fits perfectly into the trunk with the seats down if that's your sort of thing. Great amount of space in the trunk for everything beach/fishing related. It'll start and get you home every single time, just make sure to give it a good rinse especially the frame when you're off the beach. I'll probably own my 4runner until it doesn't go anymore and that's honestly something difficult to accomplish.

Less downtime. Tried and true. A 4runner.

I drive a 2019 orp.  

 

Even a entry sr5 with part time 4wd will do alot of stuff at stock form.

 

No need to go nuts on mods either.

1997 Nissan sentra with a foldable Ebike in the trunk.

 

 Best suggestion so far, in my neck of the woods the 4 Runner/ Tacoma is a mistake everyone makes... once. Possibly with lots of city driving you might see an improved milage, but I do mostly highway... my Tacoma got worse milage than any of my GM 1/2 tons, without the capability. Apparently many on here feel differently, but like I said, I know very few people who trade in their Toyota for another one, for the same reasons that I just stated.

 

 Loved all my Toyota cars though.

Friend has a Highlander.

 I would love to have one, too.

 

 Bad day fishing is still much better than good day work.

Out of curiosity where does city driving gets you more mileage than highway? My toyota isnt a daily driver I commute to work differently yet my highway mileage toyota gets upward of 17mpg. Used to own several Jeeps as well and everything of that size seems to get all in the same range. If I end up spending a few extra bucks on gas I'm sure I'll save it on maintenance down the road.
