    1. Mazda3, 20052. Own3. Hatchback so plenty of room for larger stuff, without the fuel inefficiency of an SUV... Plus its got the zoom-zoom!To be honest though, if we didn't already have DH's gas guzzler in the family, I would have wanted an SUV.  I figure I need to compensate!4. Bought it '07 years ago for $15k.

    1. 2009 Honda Accord 2. Lease 3. It drives great, gets good gas mileage, is very roomy (both front and back seats) and its reliable.  I originally wanted an SUV but couldn't justify the expense since we are saving for a house.  I only use it for driving to the train and weekend errands. 4. its fully loaded so around $300/mo

    2005 Subaru Impreza WRX Own, we purchased it out of our lease b/c we were over the alotted miles. LOVE IT! I will never buy a car/SUV that doesn't have AWD ever again! Around $22k new, but the regular Imprezas are around $15k and the newest models (08 & newer) are larger, more like a new Civic.

    i only bought one car, right after college, a 2003 honda civic LX 2-door.  it was like $14500.  i loved that thing.  drove wonderfully for what it was.  had to sell 11 months after bc i got my current job, where i get a company car, and haven't purchased since.  i have "owned" 2 jeep libertys (loved the look but not the drive except in snow), a dodge interpid (hated), a dodge charger (loved the v6 ride) an impala (great pickup), ford taurus x (great drive, but ugly, great for moving things), a nissan sentra for a bit (piece ofshit) and an explorer (suvs that large are completly unnecessary).  DH bought a infiniti g35 in 2006 for some disgusting amount of money, sold when we bought our house.  that was my favorite drive ever.  before that he had two acuras, both great drives as well, currently drives a mazda 6 which is awful, and is likely buying a pre-owned audi a or s4 next year when lease is up.  his family is big on bmws, the 3s, but they are so expensive.  to me, anything without all-wheel drive is_crap.  that is the make/break point.  and good pickup and handling, will never drive a 4 cyc.

    It seems as though everyone on here drives a very practical car...for some reason I was expecting an overflow of BMW's, Mercedes and Audi's that are all for looks...I told DH to keep what he has now its super reliable I think he just wants something with more 'curb appeal'... he has a 06 nissan altima S We just bought out the lease I personally love it - its so easy to drive and since I have a manual and his is automatic its a nice switch up when I feel like being a lazy driver.. thanks for all the feedback (Seabass he really wants the Acura RDX bc his mom had one and it saved her life in an accident so now he swears its the safest car out there)
