Daddy Driven 2010: The List

204584620
Below is the full list of every car I’ve tested extensively (meaning for more than an hour) over the past year with the latest on top chronologically working my way back to January 2010. This may still be incomplete and I typed it out quickly so some are missing model years.

I’ve put an asterisk next to each vehicle I’d personally recommend. It might not be the top choice in the segment but good enough I wouldn’t stop someone from buying. Tomorrow I’ll reveal my favorite picks for dads. None of this should be considered an endorsement by Cars.com, my employer, but I figure I should detail just how extensive my testing has been this year.
