      I realize satisfied is different for everyone, and i'll always be looking and drooling over new cars and such, but to be honest, i'm pretty happy with my current car. It's a 2.5L MK6 Golf. Not fast, Not the most high end features.. just a basic transportation car.. but it looks so good. It drives just fine. gives me great gas mileage, and is super useful. I can load up a 65" TV in there no sweat, and yet still enjoy just cruising around and using it for basic transport.

      Can i use more power? sure.. but 185hp is good enough for me. I added coilovers, exhaust, intake, gps android headunit, a decent sub/amp and some wheels and i'm all good. So are you happy with your current car?

      Yes. Very much so (2015 WRX). If it was totaled today, I would get a 2020 tomorrow.

      I'm super satisfied with my E38. It had almost half the horsepower of the S55, and yet the way the car drives and feels creates a real sense of occasion.

      My Prius? It sucks, but it gets the job done.

      Yes. The F80 is a fantastic and fun daily.

      I had an MK5 2.5L for 7 years, I loved the damn thing to bits. I just sold it last month. The Bilstein B6 shocks, DG linear springs, and 225/45/17 Michelin PSS transformed this car. Also added 312mm/286mm rotors and some other upgrades.

      But it was starting to have small age related issues, cracked trim, leaky taillights, stiff doors. I was also getting tired of averaging 18mpg with a 170hp car, and it was starting to rust again merely a year after warrantied rust repair. I replaced it with a Prius Prime, which I'm enjoying so much more than I ever expected. I put over 1200 miles since purchasing it, still on the original tank of fuel, as a matter of fact, the gas gauge hasn't even budged since I bought the car.

      I guess so. Been driving it for the last 21 years. Puts a smile on my face every time I drive by and people on the street punch each other out.

      100% with the Passat. VR6/AWD fun with wagon versatility. I'm not really a fan of the Fiat but it's my wife's car and she loves it.

      The Passat's at the body shop after getting hit for the 3rd time. Luckily not totaled, I really don't know what I'd replace it with right now (aside from an E63 wagon but that ain't happening).

      I love my current car - a 2016 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab 4x4 V6. I do wish it sat 1-2" higher (eventually will change that), and I wish it had stiffer rear leafs that handled load better. I also wish there was one more gear transmission wise, but other than that, I love it. The VQ is great, the way it rides and handles is good, and I like the styling.

      Even as a teenager, and before I got my license, I had always dreamed of owning my own fleet of cars. When I would envision these vehicles, I was thinking of them in terms of their general classification/role rather than as exact models. With that in mind, I will list them by their respective roles.

      4WD toy: Wrangler -- it is almost where I want it to be; just need to convert it to an automatic transmission. I'm still pretty happy as is, though.
      Tow rig: Suburban 2500 8.1L -- I am delighted with how well this vehicle fulfills its role. If it died today, I would run out and buy another just like it.
      RWD big block auto: Grand Prix 454 -- it makes all the right noises and vibrations, but even more torque would be awesome (nothing exceeds like excess).
      RWD small block manual: Miata project -- get back to me when I finally complete this project
      FWD manual (fun car): Shelby GLHS -- it's not quite running, but once it is I know I'll be happy with it based on GLH Turbos of my past

      Overall, I am pretty satisfied with where I am fleet-wise. But since being an adult means having to pay for your toys, I have one more automotive role to fill which I didn't envision as a teen...

      Economical daily: Leaf -- I cannot believe how satisfied I am with this car and how well it nails its mission. This car is so good at what it does, it almost makes me feel guilty just driving it.

      That SS chassis just feels so much tighter and eager than something like the Charger. It feels like a much smaller car. LS3 is a legend.

      FiST full of dollars, love the car still. Agile, I had to avoid a truck tire tread today on the freeway in packed traffic and it zigged and zagged on rails, this car is a ninja. Quick when spooled up makes it easy to pass traffic and it's blast in the curves, it will hang with the best of them. The color, the matching Recaros, manual of course, the punchy motor, great brakes and grip, over 30 mpg average and cheap to buy and maintain:

      The only reason I'd say no is I wish it was a different color combination. But as far as the important stuff goes, yeah, completely satisfied, I love the A6.

      Yep. It's not great on fuel but I don't drive a long enough commute for it to make a huge difference.

      AWD for winter, 285 rear rubber for summer, long tube takeda intakes, stainless HFCs with Tanabe mufflers sound great at WOT but stock below 3200 rpms and no drone on long drives.

      I'm happy with it as a daily. For the price I paid and the few mods i've done I will likely leave it alone now.

      If you're looking for something else to do on your Golf, drop the $600 on a United Motorsports SRI and tune. It will go nicely with your intake and exhaust and add some noticable pep to your 2.5l.

      I'm happy with my GX, and I'd replace it with a newer GX if I needed to. Maybe a 4runner though... That's always in the back of my mind as I was originally looking for one when I ended up with the GX.

      If our Tiguan were to spontaneously combust in the parking lot I would be happy. The opportunity to replace it with a RAV4 Hybrid can't come soon enough. It's not a particularly bad car... I'm just done with the VW "experience".

      No idea about my turd of a Taco in the garage. I'd probably cash out of that build of I was offered the chance, but once it's on the trail I'm sure I'll feel differently.
