Are "advise somebody toàn thân doing something" and "suggest somebody toàn thân doing something" grammatically correct?

For example:

I suggested us (rather than "we") going in my car. I advised us (rather than "we") going in my oto.

In the case of "suggest", the two options that come khổng lồ mind are:

I suggested going in my oto.


I suggested (that) we go in my car.

You cannot say directly "to suggest someone something", nor can you say "lớn suggest (to) do something".See further explanation on English Teacher Melanie and more examples of the correct usage of this verb on Oxford Learner"s Dictionaries.

Using "advise" doesn"t sound right in this context. If there were a third person saying it, the sentence could be:

He advised us khổng lồ go in my oto.

Both the sentences are grammatically incorrect. You can rephrase these sentences with the use of the conjunction "that" as follows:

I suggested that we go in my car.

I advised that we go in my oto.

You can use "should" before the verb in these sentences in British English.

I"m afraid "us" does not work there. It should be "we" as a pronoun in such context.

I suggested (that) we go in my car.

I think when you are a part of that group, you can omit the pronoun "we".

I suggested going in my oto.
