2011 Kia Soul, bought used last year. It's got room for 4 with ski gear and I can get it up to 36mpg on the highway. Great car, though I know next to nothing about cars. Planning on taking it on a cross country road trip next spring.
I have moved up to an 89 Ranger, while the wife has a 2010 Kia Sedona. The kids have moved out, but the daughter still drived the 2000 Neon I bought in 2001 and gave her in 2003. My boy has a 99 Taurus. I am considering the move to a Kia Soul myself. Hard to give up the pickup though
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

I just recently bought a '10 Nissan Rogue with 32,000 miles for $17,000. It was actually cheaper because the dealership took my '04 Stratus in for about $2,500. I've never had an SUV before, so this is a little new to me.

I drive the 1997 Mazda Protege with 110,000 miles, because I am wicked cheap.

Still wicked cheap and drive a 2007 Subaru Impreza.
The piewife and the piesons drive the 2011 Kia Sorento. The piesons only drive this one because they can't drive the standard shift Subaru! Bwahahahaha.
I LOVE stick shifts! Back in '97, I wanted to get a brand new Dacotah Sport Club Cab. They had only been out for a year, but I loved them. Thing was, the package and color I wanted wasn't available ANYWHERE in the continental US, so I had to order one and wait for the factory to make it. Since we were going that way, the salesman, (my former boss and good friend), said I can do pretty much anything I want, so we went they the checklist. When he asked me what tranny I wanted, I said stick, to which he came back with: "You realise that as soon as you drive off the lot you'll be taking $7,000 off the value of the truck right there?" (cuz not a lot of people want sticks), so, I opted for automatic. Drove it for 11 years and 210,000 miles. I miss that truck.
Another example is my thumb rollerball mouse at work. No one messes with my computer cuz they hate my mouse. ;-)

My current ride is a 2008 Rogue SL which I bought new. It's a bit quirky, but I love it. At 216,000 miles, it is easily by far the most reliable car I've ever owned.
Originally posted by drjayphdSince this thread's last bit of activity, I bought a 2008 Honda Civic. Almost 185,000 miles later...
Hey, I bought one of those, too. Not as many miles yet, but I'll probably get there someday. B^)
Just recently finished paying it off. Of course leading up that I got all these mailings telling me I could upgrade to a new car without increasing my monthly payment. Well, yeah, just having to make a ton more of them....
