I always talk to my car, no matter who sits with me. I don't feel it something strange or anything. IMHO its perfectly normal. No I haven't named her or anything. I just call her "ZEN"

Lo... behold!! Here he is.. being represented by his owner on the forum.
I call my car as MIKE (My IKon), and to me, "Its a boy !!".

I speak to him at times, most of them being "Good one, Mike", "Excellent", and so on. Luckily for me, wifey also understands he's part of the family, and treats him accordingly.

I say, "She, myself and Mike".

Talking.... Yes, I do! Like most of you here, I talk to my Chity Bang during my rides. And of course, there is that "I wish she talks back!" wish in the back of my mind. And if that happened, you know what it's like!

Talking Love You Baby

I am pretty sure most of the TBhpians (like me) have the habit of talking to their rides (and for those who dont, no we have not lost it).Heck a lot of em call names. Even i am guilty of the prior. so lets hear it , what are the names you call to your rides and what kind of small / big talk do have with em.

Ex Palio S10 - Italion Stalion
Ex Esteem - Black B***h
Lancer - 2000
Indica - Turbo (cause its a TDi)

well esteem use to have a non-fuctional fuel gauge , hence i would always tell her - " baby i promise to wash you in and out and also give you a wax job , just dont let me down , take me to place where i need to be." , she just let me down once .

Esteem and Palio -" lets go..we got to teach that guy..who is the BiG Daddy ".

Palio - after rubbing her belly or jumping over speedbreakers at 3digits- " sorry baby i swear i did not see it. very sorry "

Indica -" lets take the big boy down and show him who rules." cause people always considerd indica to be pwrd and not powered ...

lancer - " take me home " , "how you doing today" , " behave "

All of the above " Love You Baby - U the Best "

After entering home, I see my parked car and pat on my car's head lights and say "Hey Beb"

I was driving with my GF and suddenly realized that i was going extremely close to the kerb, pulled away suddenly which scared the hell out of both of us, I instantly said "i'm so sorry" and then she said that i need to concentrate on the road to which i said that i apologized to the car which led to a communication breakdown between us for a few days

By the way, Mahindra Scorpio talks to the driver. In a female voice.
Yeah "Please wear your seat belts for a safe drive", The previous version had male voices

I sometimes talk to my 800 'cos she doesn't always respond correctly to my input commands. So I chide her a little bit. But I don't have any such issues with the 1.6S. We communicate by telepathy.

I call my Sparky 'RUBY', I say sorry if I hit a pothole/speed breaker accidently at high speed.

I dont talk to her much but give her a look whenever I park and leave (the look we guys normally give to beautiful chics!!!)

I've started saying hi hello to my dear i20 everytime it comes home for a day or two, because these days it's not being used by me and I'm not too happy with it being away like that.
