GOTTA LOVE SUVs

No. Actually I hate them with the passion of the fire of 1,000 suns. Especially hatchbacks with a lift kit like the rav.

But for those of us who do handle our own transportation expenses, how much are you budgeting for insurance/maintenance/gas/auto loan payments in a year?

I'm a single mom so it works for me.  Got enough room for the stroller!  ;)

I bet the infant/toddler is worth hauling around just to get into the HOV lane, especially in SoCal.

Hey, I think I am in the running for oldest car here:
1997 Chrysler Sebring convertible
I love it nonetheless.  But it will stay behind for law school... :(

1985 Mercedes 380SE that is currently in the paint shop. Just had a 5.7 liter engine put into it based on a Mercedes M117 560 engine, with lightweight 10:1 pistons, custom super-lumpy cams, jet-hotted tri-y's, other stuff...it's absolute nonsense. I'm thinking about going to a standard cam. Oh, and for the record, though it may be a 1985, that's back when MB made cars right and all of the mechanicals were still going strong, this was out of want, not need. Parents know it's going into paint, but they don't know about the $19k of mechanicals that have gone into it...they won't be pleased, oh well what's done is done.

Its not the size, its the stupid lift kits they are putting on cars these days. Im not talking about jeep wranglers here, Im talking about the "crossovers" and non offroad capable suvs they throw at us these days.

Hey! Lets jack station wagons up by 3 inches and call them SUVs! Sure it will kill the gas millage and handling, but people can feel cool that their station wagon/ hatchback has a lift kit!

05 Honda CR-V. Paid for, too.

It's a great car. And it gets just as good of gas mileage as my VW Beetle did. Seriously.
