Um, my gf of a year hasn't ever driven my Jeep. She asks if she can, then when I say yes, she doesn't want to. Works out well for me.

I was going to take my wife out and let her learn how to drive stick on my jeep. After reading this i don't think it is going to happen.

My wife and daughter drives mine. When I was in Laramie a couple of weeks ago my daughter started driving mine when she had car problems and when I got back home she didn't want to give my XJ back to me....

bottom line is.. you can either still let her drive it... or every time she wants to go somewheres. stop everything you're doing to drive her and drop her off.. then a few hours later, repeat said process to pick her up. my girlfriend cant drive stick. and its the only vehicle between the 2 of us. so thats what i always end up doing. its not exactly alot of fun.

I let girls drive my jeeps... Girls that I wouldn't even go as far as to call girlfriends. It doesn't bother me. Whatever they do is unlikely to be much worse than what I do.

Besides, she rear ended something with the jeep, now she can't say no when you try to rear end her...

I used to drive my ex-girlfriends truck everywhere! damn near wrecked it once but came out without hitting a thing somehow. My mom likes to drive my jeep sometimes, shes the only woman that has sat in the drivers seat since i've bought it. None of the girls i know, and guys even can drive a stick so i've got that going for me. I guess that if someone wanted to drive it they could...

I think this is the best argument of all against getting an automatic... never doing that again.

Also, make sure the clutch needs to be stood on to work.

I would not even think twice about it honestly the keys would still be there for her. This is my thinking usually people learn from their mistakes (not always) I think she will put more distance between her and any thing in front of her.

If we had our keys taken away forever for messing up once this would be a mountain biking forum.

When my wife and I were dating she was always welcome to drive my vehicles. One of her favorites was my first XJs on 31s. One she hates more than anything is my Toyota custom cab It drives like a 4x4 limo. She does not care much to drive my current XJ. But she has always and will always be welcome to grab up the keys for anything in the yard.

I do admit though I had to work with her on some of her driving. The first big one was that she was a hood driver. This was not her fault her father taught her that if she put the center of the hood on the right line on the road she was in the center of her lane. It took a while to get her to look way ahead of her instead of just a few feet of the hood.

So here is a thought hand her the keys and ride with her and help to point out things not only about how she is driving but what to look out for when driving a lifted vehicle. I would also take her on a deserted stretch of road and have her do some panic stops especially if you don't have ABS. And for the love of Jeep have her drive some into the grass. Too many people are scared to death to hit the grass lane even if they are getting ready to run over the car in front of them. It also would not hurt to make sure she is paying attention constantly to what is going on around her so in case something unexpected happens at any given time she knows were every thing around her is and has an escape plan. This is some of the same stuff that is learned in a defensive driving coarse.
