Our Kia Sorento doesn't get driven very much since we got the ram. The Kia milage isn't as good on the road as the Ram,but just a little better in town. Driving the Kia doesn't compare with the Ram.

Mines a daily driver....granted I only drive a couple miles to work. But I never have been one that worries about gas mileage. My take on it is...something with good gas mileage doesn't have 390hp. And when I want to go....I want to go!

Daily driver! Im a pickup man

You can set my truck on fire, and roll it down a hill
But I still wouldn't trade it for a Coupe DeVille
I've got an eight foot bed that never has to be made
You know if it weren't for trucks we wouldn't have tailgates
I met all my wives in traffic jams,
There's just something women like about a Pickup Man

Daily Driver here... I've got a 10 or 12 mile commute to work, where it'll sit for a day or two while I'm out of town driving the trains...

I've also got a Honda Civic Si that I'll use for running errands around town, or if I just feel like getting stupid for awhile.

Wife's daily driver is a '10 Challenger RT Classic (in B5 blue) that I may have put 200 miles on in the year that we've had it. I'd just rather drive my truck than anything else that we own.

The Ram is also our family vehicle, as it's got the back doors which allow the kid to enter with less issues. Took it to N'awlins back in June, and will be taking it to Jacksonville, FL in July.

To say it is a daily driver to me is a definite understatement.

I own a geothermal heat pump company, and hate to fly commercial. That being said, my last truck at 1 year old had 80k miles on it. I had a 4-door 09 Silverado 4x4 with all the options. Tons of problems (engine), but otherwise a good truck that drove and rode more like a car.

I bought the Dodge Crew over the other brands for a number of reasons - price for the options, interior room to haul around clients in comfort, space for the family, 4x4 for driving in any conditions (I don't like spending the night in a vehicle!), safety, and many other "comfort" features.

What I've found is that a 10-12 hour drive in this truck is long, but still reasonably comfortable. I'm on the road almost all the time, and this truck does it all - in style, comfortable. It also pulls my heavy steel horse trailer much better than the Chevy did.

We just won't talk about gas mileage....

And I get a big smile when I shove the accelerator to the floor.... :-)
