After this week it will be back to being a Paid Item? Its cool your letting people Test Drive (wasn't the first Drive free too?, Mine Glitched and I got disconnected so I never did get my free drive back in the day.) , yet with all the other Paid content, couldn't you just give a Crappy one away for free? In all reg. Sim City Games the Driving is an extra that comes with out a Price. (then again in real Sim city games you don't actually drive it on a set track and you just view your city from the car with out any control of it. Yet also they could just run around in a Fire truck or ambulance...

I thought everyone already get the basic car for free anyways. At least I thought I got mine for free. I don't remember buying it, but I bought some the more costly cars later.

The Basic Car normally becomes available when Test Drive is unlocked through purchasing the Stunt Pack, Life in the Fast Lane expansion, Crime & Punishment expansion, or any premium car. This week it's free to drive as long as you want in any city (yours or someone else's), with no time limits.

Smiley Sad   Aww. I was hoping to entice my none-tycoon friends into becoming tycoon regulars. Without the car's boost feature in the Free Test Drive Week there's no point to inviting them to my racetrack city. I have some sweet jumps they won't make. Oh well, maybe in the future HellFire will want some of my friends money.   Smiley Frustrated

They can always just get the Stunt Pack if they want Turbo Boost, unlimited Test Drive, and all the stunt ramps and loops. It's the cheapest expansion in the bunch! Or they can watch you jump those ramps in envy. Smiley Wink

At time I unlocked it though I hadn't bought any of the packs yet. I played the game without buying anything for the first couple of weeks just to see how far I could get on it. And I'm pretty possitive I already had the basic car in my possession. I remember I used to drive a car around and it wasn't just the ambulance or fire truck. I bought acouple of 2.99 coin packs and purchased acouple of vehicles maybe 2 weeks after Home Tycoon began but that's about it. I didn't buy any expansions until at least a month later. I have most of the packs now though and I intend to buy them all eventually. Well not the high rise or gold expansion because I made my city more like a small town or suburbs.

This will indeed be interesting, I'll finally have the chance to see what it's like to have the advantage of using a car. Cat Happy
