I've driven manual/standard cars most of my life. Growing up in a rural area I got to experience various road surfaces and conditions though the last 10 years of driving has primarily been in metropolitan areas. I've been driving my 2012 Hyundai Elantra GLS (6 speed manual) all around BC with the appropriate tyres for the time of year.
I drive to the conditions and drive defensively, especially with two young children.
We hosted briefly on airbnb and understand the respect and care owners expect of their belongings.
I'm obsessed with Electric cars. I don't own one yet but have test driven hyundai Ioniq.
