Well...my wife 'lets' (ha!) me drive HER new Equinox whenever we go somewhere together. However..I 'let' her drive her Equinox to work each day..and anywhere else she decides to go when I'm not around. She even 'lets' me wax it...and I 'let' her help. I do 'let' her pay for and put in the gas..out of the kindness of my heart,tho. She did 'allow' me to buy a set of Husky liners for it...and I 'permit' her the expense of taking it in for upkeep.
I must say...this is one of the 'funniest' threads that I've ever read on this forum..but maybe that's just because I look at the question from quite a different perspective.
My wife has a company car (Ford Fusion) that she drives during the week and prefers to the Nox simply because of our height difference (I'm 6'1, she's 5'3) and the lack of memory seats on my particular Nox. She prefers to ride shotgun when we go somewhere together and I'm fine with that..
Our other car is a 2008 Mini Clubman. I'm not really crazy about it, although it is sporty and fast. I'm not really crazy about driving in general and I'd rather be chauffeured, ha ha, so the answer to the question is YES. :
At first, she really wanted to drive it, but she ended up preferring to stick with our other car (09 Honda Fit) with it's superior maneuverability/road feel and less blind spots. For me, the Fit now feels like a penalty box. Love the VERY QUIET and SMOOTH ride of the Equinox.
I don't let anyone drive my Equinox. It's the first brand new car I have ever had. Except for the 4 miles put on from the factory and dealership, I am the only one to have ever drove that vehicle. It's going to stay that way. I love my Equinox, I totally baby it!
