Hooniverse Asks- What're Your Minimum Requirements for a Daily Driver?

While we may all have dream cars, the cars we actually drive on a daily basis need to provide a modicum of functionality and driving efficiency.

Or maybe you just want a manual transmission and a cup holder that fits your favorite coffee mug. Whatever it is, it’s probably part of a unique set of criteria that you have established, probably subconsciously, that you use in establishing which is  just the right car for you. If so, what would those criteria be? Image sources: [audizine.com, funpeak.com]
