About This Quiz

The car you drive is more than just a means to get where you need to go! The car you drive is often a reflection of your personality, your financial status, and the way you view the world. Throughout this quiz, we'll get to know you and your driving habits. By the time we're done, we're confident we will be able to guess exactly which car you own!

They say that dogs take on their owner's personalities, so it's only natural that spending time in your car would have the same effect. Over time, we tend to take on the traits of our car. If you're fortunate enough to drive a top-shelf Porsche, you may have more discriminating tastes than those of us that drive third owner cars. Then again, those of us that drive old beaters might just have a little more in the bank that someone living for their next car payment. 

No matter what kind of car you drive, we're sure we'll be able to figure it out based on you. Sure, we will also want to know a little about your car, but cars are relatively boring compared to your sparkling personality. Tell us everything, and we'll match you up with your ride!
