Inspired by this thread, Mom drives nice car, Dad drives the old beater- true in your family?
I am curious what your definition of “beater” is. Is it age alone? Condition alone? Condition + age?
One poster mentions his 2006 car is the beater in the family, which surprised me. Of course, I don’t know what kind of shape it is in. It seems too new to be a beater to me. Despite having a 2004 and a 2008 in our family, I would not consider either of them beaters. Both are in excellent shape inside and out.
