Welcome to One Car Garage, in which I choose a manufacturer or class of vehicle, and you decide choose single vehicle (no matter how old, no matter how exclusive) to live with for the rest of your life. This is your only vehicle, and all expenses are paid for, including price of entry, insurance, gas, etc.

Yesterday was spent with the quirky vehicles only Saab could produce. There were a lot of fantastic choices, many of which I didn't know much about. Today things are going to be a little different. We’re going to be choosing a vehicle with 3 rows of sets. Alternately, it could be a vehicle that seats 7 or more.

For me, this is an easy one. It’s the same vehicle I chose when we did an OCG for Audi. I just can’t get past the pavement shredding torque of the V12 TDI. The Q7 V12 TDI is a glorious machine that I can imagine will handily deal with any DD tasks I could throw it’s way. Also, as it was last time I chose the Q7, I'd prefer a pre-facelift model.
