Mechanics, my kids have a couple times with me and my wife, but she prefers not to. Usually only if we go out and I might have few drinks

My wife, if she wants to but that`s because she gave me $26,000 towards the car. She has only driven it once though as she prefers her `14 Jeep Grand Cherokee. That`s cool "Happy Wife-Happy Life"

A couple friends with me in the car and the Mrs once. Just wanted her to feel the power and enjoyment I have with it. She was a little hesitant with the accelerator due to being EXTRA cautious and don't know if she had any fun.

My wife and I swap cars every once in a blue moon, and my little brother has had his courtesy 1 test drive in both Mustangs right after we got them, but that's it.

Next spring I will have to let my son drive mine a little as he will need to learn how to drive stick, though most of his learning will be in the Santa Fe, however, as that will be what he drives on a daily basis. We will have to discuss Prom in a couple of years I am sure ("Go ask your mother, lol")....

I got a big laugh from Terminators reply. Great story for Father's Day.

I tell my wife to take it now and then. I say,"You look good in it Hun". She doesn't want anything to go wrong while she's driving it. I don't mean accident wise but any common issues. She doesn't wanna hear my crap.lol. I'm not a tyrant but she came home in a previous car without a hub cap and had no idea she lost it. She did remember hitting a pothole though. Just one example of many. Haha.

I let my 24 year old son drive it anytime he wants. My daughters haven't learned to drive a stick yet and they can drive it when they do. I trust my kids till they show me otherwise. They understand the value of life and the all mighty dollar. Lol

I'll let my brother or father drive it but they are both car guys. My pops drives a 300 SRT-8 and my bro used to have a Charger R/T but now drives a SHO so I don't mind swapping with either of them. They can both handle the power and have very fun cars to drive themselves.

Pretty much no one except the service guy at the dealer I've been going to the last 14+ years.
The wife is happy enough to ride in it, she doesn't want to drive it.

My salesman drove it for 25 yards to get off the lot on the test drive and to fill it up with gas after I bought it. Other than that, I have been the only one to drive it. Wife can't drive manual, so that rules her out. There are a few people who I would let drive my car but I would never just lend it out to someone; they would have to be with me.

Only me, my car bears a huge amount of damage from letting others drive it. I may let a trusted coworker take a quick ride to the store for lunch, but that is extremely rare.

Once my daughter gets old enough, I'll teach her how to drive in it.

My wife drives it from time to time. She ******* and moans about how loud and stiff it is, but deep down I think she really digs it.

I've had mine for 2 months and my wife and my brother have driven it. Both are accustomed to performance cars, plus AdvanceTrac seems to do a good job of neutering the car enough to keep someone unfamiliar with it from getting in trouble.
