    What kind of cars do you see ALL THE TIME in your area?

    Around here, every single day, I'll see several late model (2005 & up) Mustangs.

    I'll see even more Chrysler 300 models.

    I'm personally glad I have a car that you don't see all over the place.

    Quite a few Honda CR-V's & Lexus SUVs.

    How often do you guys see a Smart Car? For me, I know several people in my area have one.

    We were just talking about how the large fleets of SUV's and large trucks seem to have been taken over by newer Mustangs and PT Cruiser type vehicles.

    We were just wondering what happended?

    Lots and lots of pickup trucks! I even have one myself. :D SUV's are probably a close second.

    Out here in the rural midwest - every other kid has a truck. I think the student parking lot is 1/2 full of them. I also see loads of Chevy Impalas. I am probably just noticing them more since DH's company sent him one for a new company car a couple of months ago.

    trucks - mostly Ford trucks and a lot of SUVs, cars are probably less than 1/3 of what I see. There are probably 3-4 smart cards in my immediate area and I always see the same ones.

    Pick-up Trucks and SUVs are everywhere and we are helping to contribute to that because we have 2 trucks (husband and son) and 2 SUVs (daughter and me). My oldest daughter is the only one who wanted a smaller car and she choose a Saturn Ion.

    I see a TON of BMWs, Benz, Porsche, and BIG trucks. On my way to work one day (15 min drive) I saw 14 BMWs. It's insane! On occasion I'll see a Ferrari or Lambo.

    Those Smart cars, I don't know about them. I always get scared for them. What if someone collides with them from behind or in front. They'll get squashed like a bug. Definitely not Smart.

    lots of prius, hybrids, subaru forester and outbacks, and f 250 super duty trucks.....but ...

    I think it's what you look for or what you're interested in....I don't personally see many trucks, but my husband (truck lover) sees them all over.
    I like the eco friendly cars, so that's more of what I notice....
