    Down here in Texas, women go for the Chevy pickups and Mustangs. So I'm guessing everywhere else varies as well.

    Your consideration of the Miata is well justified. Great driver's car regardless of year model.

    Look, as long as it's not hot sparkly pink or periwinkle blue, you're go to go.

    Sorry but Honda doesn't make trucks. The ridgeline is a pilot which is a oversized mini van.

    Miatas are cool bit way too small for me.





    Yeah ladies around here drive a lot of cars around here, more mustangs then trucks and a lot of SUVs. Would be able to retire of I got a nickel for every soccer mom driving a Tahoe or expedition.

    But yeah if you're into chick and guy cars around here anything from a jacked up f350 to a mustang could be one...

    GLK is definitely not a chick car. If anything, they're unisex. I've seen many men driving in GLKs in Houston and in fact, am thinking of getting one myself when the 2013 version comes out.

    My Dad's got a red 1990 Miata, and I've only ever had one person call it a chick car, and he drove a rested out Chevy S10 and dropped out of high school, so I don't think his opinion matters. :)

    The GLK, BMW X1/X3, Acura RDX, Infinit EX35, Audi Q5 and Volvo XC60 are all in the same 'compact-luxury crossover' category; and none of them are considered 'chick cars' here in Atlanta. If you can hold out until January, a new turbodiesel version of the GLK is being added to the U.S. lineup. That's the one I'd go for...

    By the way, here are the real chick cars based on 2011 sales. They are the 10 vehicles with the highest percentage of female buyers-


    Volvo S40 – 57.9%
    Nissan Rogue – 56.9%
    Volkswagen Eos – 56.4%
    Volkswagen New Beetle – 54.6
    Toyota Matrix – 54.1%
    Hyundai Tucson – 54%
    Honda CR-V – 53.4%
    Toyota RAV4 – 54%
    Nissan Juke – 52.7% (tie)
    Jeep Compass – 52.7% (tie)

    I feel pretty confident in predicting that the Fiat 500 will make the list this year!

    i think you're overthinking car-gender.

    I don't really see cars as having gender, unless they're marketed towards that by the car maker (a la VW Bettle). Get what you want, and if that means GLK then cut the check for it :). I'm basically driving the "mom's car" (I actually did buy my car from her), but I love my car and how it handles. Decent on gas too, and it hauls everything I need to/from college.

    I didn't see an Altima on that list... :(

    Eh, opposite here. All the guys in SC want either a lifted American truck/SUV (or just the truck/SUV and they can't afford lifting :rolleyes:) or a Mustang. "Chick cars" here are either the two-generations-old Mustang (the one that came after the tiny fake-Mustang), Lexus and other Japanese lux cars, and that's about all I can think of.

    What's really stupid is that everyone else loves golf carts. They drive them around like cars practically (inside neighborhoods, not major roadways).
