    What kind of cars do you prefer?

    Ones that are European, Asian, or American?

    SUVs, Sedans, Sports cars or Vans?

    Depends upon how much money you have to purchase it with, 'safe' is preferable to me....and that does NOT induce me to drive like a 'safe(r) nutcase' from lots of experience, and God's grace that spared me some of that/those experience(s)....

    I like the car that I own. Because it's the only one I can actually use.

    I own an SUV, I'll pick an SUV over a car anyday.

    How about them prototype hydrogen-powered cars? 0 to 60 in 14 seconds :smile:

    It probably wont be nearly as powerful as modern cars that get from 0 to 60 in 3-4 seconds, but at least it wont be guzzling up gas.

    people honestly you are all missing out: the only vehicle for me is a motor bike, once you ride one u will never look at a car the same, i cant use words to describe the finer points of a bike you have to ride one to find out

    In heavy traffic, I drive my Ram with the jungle bars. "If you can't Dodge it, Ram it." Light traffic, the Element, aka "The Toaster." Sadly, no place to put a gun rack on the Element.

    A read a report for Greener Cars that claimed the Jetta Diesel's are still more polluted than petro...
