    I could let my better half drive my car, however putting her on my insurance doubled the premium so she elected not to drive it. She had one non fault fully recovered claim in her car and the insurers now feel she is a higher risk driver hence the premium increase.

    I always have to fight with whoever I'm with about my cars. I always let them drive my car at least once, but then they think its ok all the time. I bought my fun cars (S5/Supra) for my enjoyment. If they get damaged let me be behind the wheel. Stuff seems to always happen when I'm worried about it and its not in my care. The guys who posted that your wives/gf understand your bond, I are truly blessed.

    Besides, I'm the only one who would let her drive when we were teenagers (now in our 30's), so she's learned from me, for the most part. She's driven every car I've owned (some are not in my signature). Her daily MKV Jetta was heavily modified and she drove it for 9 years with no scuffs/scrapes, accidents or wheels curbed on Chicago streets. And, she can drive a manual

    Took my wife to a track event and two years later now she dumped the SUV and has been tracking with me ever since. She'll be testing out the Panamera this summer against the RS7. Two tanks with a crap ton of horsepower

    Anyone Let Your Wife Drive Your Car?

    Wife complains that she wants to drive my car but
    when I give her the ok she
    declines the offer.
    She isnít allowed to store anything in the garage.
    Only things allowed in the garage

    Her Mercedes is parked in driveway.
    However she lets me keep it full of gas and clean.

    I thoroughly enjoy when my wife is behind the wheel and I'm riding co-pilot. The experience is totally different and I love how much she enjoys putting the pedal down. Stage 3 scared her initially but she can't wait to drive it now. She never takes it out without me, nor does she want to. And it's almost all straight line sprints for her, which is a ton of fun for me in the passenger seat. Damn does it pull

    Lots of interesting responses here. My wife is too scared to drive my car. She drove home from dinner the other night, and it was "white knuckles" and slow slow slow the whole way home. Was kinda funny. She says the car is "too low" and "too fast". I guess when you have been driving an SUV for years and years that's the sentiment you're gonna get.

    when my wife and I were dating back in the late 90's I had a Vortech blown Cobra- the first time I let her drive that car she proceeded to pull away while I watched and did a second gear rolling burnout, at that point I knew she was the one The RS is way faster than the Cobra was but I'd let her drive it any time she likes- where she parks it at is more of what I'm concerned with...

    Yes and she curbed a wheel the last time she drove it and didn't tell me about it.
    Do it right, or don't bother.

    She drives the S6 all the time and she drove my old Porsche Turbo that had nearly double the power with mods. Not a big deal. Cars can be replaced.

    my wife has no trouble driving my car. she just doesn't like driving it because it's even longer than her suv, making it a bit unwieldy.
