Ok Guys, I always wondered how possessive you are as regards to your car?

Who is allowed to drive your car?

In my Case Its ONLY ME except is unavoidable situations where family members might take it.

I can't sit easy if someone else is driving my car.

What about You?

Since you (SLK) mentioned who likes to drive the car, the problem is that some of us have more than one car. So it becomes a problem about which car you are referring to, primary/secondary car.

Also you didnt mention whether its when i or you drive alone or when others are around who drives or gets to drive it.

Clarify please

Well normally it s only me who drives my Zen since its my own personal car. I really dont let anyone drive it . It only rarely I let my brother drive or my dad uses it for a small trip . Or else everyone uses the family Sierra. I really arent comfortable sitting in the passenger seat of my own car

My Jeep - No one else is even allowed to start it. This was an issue initially since the Jeep would have to be moved when it was blocking the Honda or the Mercs way in the compound. But now I did some breaking and altering of the compound and have a dedicated parking spot.

Otherwise I am "blessed" with two really great drivers (C'mon its so tough to find drivers who actually take care of the car) who have been with the family since 8 years. No issues at all. In fact, they sometimes take more car of the sedans than I do.

Well, Revvmaster.. I am referring to your own car. weather you have 4 or 5 U'll have 1 dedicated I guess!
Its not the case that when you are around you drive it.
Its like, even if you are not there no one touches it!

Once I had gone Out of town for some work (not by car) for 2 weeks. lol.. i forgot to tell anyone to at least start it every 4-5 days. And, on coming back it was right there, but took a longgerr crank to start. moral of the story "ITS MINE"

if you have 5 cars 5 drivers in family, none dedicated, you simply don't fall in the category of possessive drivers.

When it comes to my Conti, I drive myself. Once in a while, my brother has a go. My dad and mom, both don't drive it. The only other people who have driven my car are people who I know - some of my fellow moderators and a few site members.
