I drove a civic for last 4 years. loved it to death, put a 100k on it. sold it.
bought and currently drive a Forester, love it to death. slightly underpowered (should have gone for the Turbo 240hp instead of my current 170hp) but it has leather heated seats, huge sunroof, plenty of space and its awesome. black on black. have had it for 7 months and have 20k miles on it already
next car i want in 3-4 years (that's about how long i keep my cars, find it has the best resale-to-maintanence value) .. i am debating. i love the space and comfort as well as the drive of a lot of the cross-over-mini-suv's like my subaru and the acura rdx - main reason i bought my subaru was space and I love it. with the back seats down i can put anything in there, its bigger than my bed, maybe even bigger than my bedroom. but then i love the classiness and luxury of a sedan. I am thinking maybe a bmw 3 series or an infinity - i have also never owned anything more than a 4 cylinder so i really want a 6 cylinder.
I think about cars a lot!
I love cars! Also until very recently I have always thought at some point, I want to own a convertible - almost definitely the nissan 350 z: but now I am thinking I wouldn't mind not having one as long as I have a sweet family car. I do care about the efficiency and space and value of the car so I am not sure I'd ever actually get a coupe or a convertable unless it was a used one for a killer price and i was loaded. Right now I am all about investing and making as much as I can to get myself some property under my name, mostly to rent out, before I turn 23. So cars will have to wait
