    The Miata is only a chick car if it has an automatic transmission! With the manual transmission, it's a true driver's car and highly regarded by the automotive media! :D

    One of my two cars qualifies as a 'suburban soccer mom' vehicle. I have a 2006 Mazda3 s 5-door (5-speed manual) which I've owned since December 2005. But I needed something with a larger back seat for my 5yr old niece and 20-month old nephew. So I bought a 2008 Volvo S60 T5 and several of my friends love to give me grief over it! But I love it more than any other car I've owned in my 22 years of driving and don't give a rat's @ss what anyone else thinks!

    Besides, they usually shut up when they see what it can do thanks to the 257hp High-pressure Turbo I-5...nothing but taillights....:cool:

    Ever thought of adding some Elevate mods to your S60? That will surely bring your car to life :)

    When a man drives a so called 'chick car' it reaffirms his manliness. It shows that he is not insecure about his manhood and that a car will not in any way deteriorate it.

    People who choose not to drive a car because it's a 'chick car' are insecure about themselves and care too much about what other people think and need to grow a pair and drive whatever the they want.

    hi guys OP here

    thanks for all the helpful comments.

    i ended up getting '12 Toyota 4Runner.

    Mercedes dealer I visited was less than helpful. not that toyota dealer was any better but at least it had a low starting point, that is, price-wise...

    i should love shopping for a new car but having to deal with friggin' dealers sucks all the fun out of it.

    oh well. i'm glad i'm not selling cars for a living.

    thanks for all the helpful comments again! it was fun!

    This is my "chick car". It's a 2012 Audi TT-RS. I laugh when I hear people talking bad about it at car shows because I know it'll most likely blow the doors off whatever they drive :)
