Hyundai Santa Fe. I like this ride.
Toyota Highlander SUV is my primary ride but I also own an aging Dodge Dakota pickup. Next vehicle will be another midsize pickup, current thinking is either Toyota Tacoma or Nissan Frontier.

Thread originator drives a rugged Toyota Tundra, 4-wheel drive, sand bags in the bed to provide 2-wheel traction on the snowy/icy days/nights. Been driving trucks for years. Me tuff. meow
2000 Mazda Protege. Wife got a Santa Fe a month after my full time job ended. I like the small SUV. You are not a MAN out here unless you drive a huge pickup...I do not have a truck.

20 yrs ago I had a Ford Bronco II that was double manual - 5 speed & 4 wheel drive.
Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Are you sure you're not hurt ?
No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
Broke parts take a little longer, though.

Currently I have two rides.
An 87 bmw 3 series, which is my first car, and more surprisingly gets really good gas mileage (ranges from 32-37 on the highway). I have an 06 Pontiac GTO because in youthful wisdom I decided that I wanted something visceral only to realize that I don't like racing and I can't use its abilities on the street so I'm probably gonna sell it. It too gets good gas mileage for a 6 liter V8 ( as high as 31, but 27-29 is usual).
Old Explorer--living in the country near Lake Michigan we need a four wheel drive that sits high enough to navigate the county roads during lake effect snow. With current budget crisis, the county cant get out to plow on a regular basis,
None of the above. Don't own a car, but am a member of a car sharing ;program. Use my bicycle most of the time.
A narc car....'07 Chevy Impala, black on black.

I drive an old Suburban. There was a time when taking my mom someplace with us meant taking two vehicles, and it was happening a lot. I don't need to drive a nine passenger vehicle now, but I don't have a car payment and like that.
I like sitting up high when I drive, so when it's time to replace it, I'll most likely buy a smaller SUV.
I LOVE my Hyundai Tucson!
"We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011
You forgot a few categories like vans and cross overs
Also, should have had multiple options.
We have 1 car (Beetle) and 1 smaller SUV (Acadia). The car is used for running around without kids. Anytime myself or my wife go around town or even farther, if we are solo or without kids we will take the VW. Otherwise we are pretty tied to the SUV which we probably use 75% of the time so I voted SUV.
One of each:
2001 Ford Ranger
2004 jeep Liberty
2005 Chrysler 300C

Car-I live in a place where snow isn't an issue and don't farm/ranch/whatever.
When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?
2008 Subi Forester, and thinking of getting a 2012 Subi Forester. Here in the Jamestown area, you need to have AWD/4WD SUV or pickup because of the snow and the hills unless you want to drive a land yacht, which is not my style at all. The Forester is heavy enough yet not all that high profile, so it's really surefooted. It's not a "real" off road vehicle but I've driven mine all over my land and haven't gotten stuck yet. I'm just careful that I don't try to go over something that might get it hung up because it doesn't have as much clearance as a true off-road machine.
Only 2 people with trucks (including me)? Srsly?
I should get automatic man card renewal for life then

teenage girl car here:
2004 Nissan Sentra Se-R. Got it during my rice rocket phase. Should have gone with the more practical prius, but felt it was too "hippie" for me.

Kia Rondo. Her name is Rondoriffic. Technically she's a space wagon MPV or a suv/mini-van-crossover. It easily seats 5 plus has a large cargo area capable of comfortably fitting two LARGE dogs.
2008 Jeep Wrangler (this is my 2nd Wrangler). I've previously had three 1987-1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneers complete with the faux wood paneling and am always in the market for a 4th... no matter what my wife tells you!
And although I checked off "SUV" in the poll, there isn't much utility to a Wrangler. In fact, this may be one of the most impractical vehicles on the road.
- It almost has enough power to get out of its way on a flat surface
- Towing capacity isn't much different than that of the Fisher Price Power Wheels™ version of the Wrangler
- Interior is as quiet as an M1 Abrams tank
- The storage capacity of a large suitcase
- All the aerodynamics of a refrigerator box
- The fuel effeciency of a 1977 Pontiac Grand Prix
- Backseat inaccessible to all but the thinnest and most limber members of society
But what other vehicle would allow me to drive around with no doors or roof all spring and summer long?

2006 MINI Cooper...Yeah Baby, Yeah!!!
2007 Ford Focus hatchback... that I treat like a truck. This weekend I crammed 15 bags of cedar mulch into it, and now it smells like a hampster cage.
My wife drives a 2006 Chevy HHR. It gets treated much better.
"Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."
