Re: What is a good car to take to England????

If you don't already have a car, I'd wait till I got there. There are always people selling cars on base before they leave.

When we were in England, DH drove a Jeep Wrangler which is the extended version (not the 4 door one) and I drove a Jeep Patriot. We did fine driving all over- the only issue we had was parking in cities- the spots are TEENY in big cities! If you have a bigger vehicle, you end up with nerves of steel The roads are narrower and sometimes can be tricky but can be drive through

I actually liked driving a left sided car in England. It was easier to hug the outside lane so you weren't as close to oncoming traffic.

I've seen people with Exursions and the like- but I don't think they ever drove them off base!
