I used to take my 2008 Infiniti G35 Sedan everywhere and even took it to Patriarch Grove in the White Mountains in the Eastern Sierras. Hahaha.
I was beating up the Infiniti so I finally bought a used 1998 Toyota 4Runner 4X4 in year 2000 with 170,000 plus miles for $3,500. Now it has about 310,000 plus miles and still running strong. It's been everywhere in the Western U.S. and has served me well. I'm starting to see some leaks so I might retire or sell it for $2,500 this year. lol
I just go car camping in it when I don't feel like setting up a tent. The downside it that it only get's 18 miles per gallon of fuel so long drives get a bit pricey.
If I don't need a 4X4 vehicle I would buy a VW Jetta wagon with a TDI motor or Audi A3 wagon with TDI motor (I think AWD option is available). Both gets close to 40 miles per gallon of diesel fuel. This may be the perfect photography support vehicle for me...a good combination of utility and fuel economy. I can put a Yakima or Thule roof-mounted hard shell cargo box so I can use the rear seats and truck and sleeping area if I need to resort to car camping.
