    Just curious about this topic today. Wondering what vehicles are popular with the CF crowd, which you'd recommend, and which you might say to avoid.

    I drive a Chevy Impala and I love the interior space; it is tough to find that much room in a sedan nowadays for tall drivers like me:

    I wouldn't say anything bad about either, as long as you accept that they are what they are. I'm not putting "rims" on either one of them, and thankfully, the only chicks I'm picking up is the one I'm married to.

    I drove a 91 Toyota Celica during and after college - when I got it in 2008, it had 57,000 miles on it. I want to say I was just over 90-something when I gave it back to my parents.

    I drive a 2009 Nissan Altima now. Love it, would definitely recommend it.

    Husband drives an 04 Dodge Intrepid. It's definitely very roomy which is good for the tall husband, but it's becoming more and more of a money pit. Would not recommend :no:

    Tiny Mazda protege. I like it because its stick gets good mpg and no one tries to borrow it because its stick and has no cargo room.

    I just went over 48,000 today on my car. Bought it a year ago with 32,000.

    Holy ****, I have put a ton of miles on my car in a year.

    Just moved here. Lived in Indianapolis when I bought it. It was 1,100 miles round trip every time going back home to Iowa to visit. And I 500-600 per week at work, as I had stores all around the state of Indiana. Then the little cross country trip from Indiana to California to ship my car to Hawaii added just a few as well.

    I figured something about driving to Cali had something to do with it.

    I have the 14 Forester Touring model. Little loud on the inside, but otherwise I love how it drives with their AWD and gas mileage. Have fun trying to find one though. Subaru can't keep up with the demand.
