    I had a G5 as well! I loved that car. I needed something bigger, which is why my parents got me the Kia Sportage. I do miss my Pontiac from time to time.

    You could always get a used one?

    I'm married to a bargain hunter! I drive a Chevy Blazer, probably 12 years old. I drive it because it has 4-wheel drive, which I need just to get out of my driveway in the winter, and we were able to buy it used and almost purchase it outright with cash. I do love it because I feel safe in it. But if I had my choice, I would drive a newish Subaru Forrester! Love them.

    Don't worry, I've coated it with lady-repellent to make sure my drives aren't as hazardous, but I'm cruising around in a 2004 Chevy Aveo.

    2011 Honda CRV. I bought it about a year ago to replace my 2001 pontiac Sunfire which died. I got it because I'm planning on starting a family and wanted a crossover that would hold a growing family and be able to haul things from home depot without asking the help of friends. :)

    Chevy Silverado 4 wheel drive. I got it because family members lived in areas where we needed to be able to drive on dirt roads and across rivers.

    I had horrible luck with my pontiacs. I had a sunbird which died at 135000 miles, and a sunfire which died at 115000 miles. both blew head gaskets (the second one blew the hg 3 times which is why i finally got rid of it), and both went through catalytic converters. I vowed to not buy another gm car.

    In the past I have had two honda civic ex leases. Now I have a Toyota Rav 4. I wanted a Nissan Rogue but we got a better deal on the Rav 4. I still want the Rogue.

    What I notice from this thread is that there are an awful lot of what we would call in the UK 'big cars'. Seems that your gas prices are not putting you off them?

    Well, my husband is an agricultural teacher. We raise show sheep. I have to have a vehicle that can pull a trailer with ten sheep on it. So that is why I have my "weekend" car and my "communiting" car. I do drive a small suv during the week, but I get great gas mileage. And my truck gets good gas mileage and it is paid for.
