It's my most hated term. Seriously. I also think they're a tremendous waste of money. And I DO this stuff. Haha I love this! We didn't send them for our wedding in 2008 but the last few weddings we've gone to have done them. One was a bit of a destination wedding so it made some sense but the other...

Re: Need some car input--do you drive any of these vehicles?

The TOTAL cargo space on the Subarus was significantly bigger (as in with the back seats folded down), and a little bit bigger otherwise. But when you look in it seems to your eye smaller. The perceived lower height (they're the same height within 1-2 inches) tricks your eye.

Re: Need some car input--do you drive any of these vehicles?

Ame, how was the trunk space in the Forrester? Excellent. We felt it was significant. The Mazda, etc, "feel" taller but on paper they're all pretty much identical. Down to like 1-2 inches. We've seen TONS of the Mazdas around, two of our neighbors just got them. I did tell Dh I think he s...

Re: Need some car input--do you drive any of these vehicles?

That's also my experience driving a 4 cylinder Rav4. Step on the gas, especially merging on the highway, and nothing happens. The motor just revs and makes all sorts of odd noises but doesn't accelerate. It used to come in 6 cylinder model, which was much zippier, but they discontinued it couple of...

Re: Need some car input--do you drive any of these vehicles?

Re: poll: were you mad about U2?

I wouldn't say mad, but I felt I should've had a choice in whether or not it was on my account/device/space. Let me decide! I did remove it, because I am not a U2 fan. DH liked it though so it's on his stuff. But I removed it.

More power, generally, and yes, more zip. My husband likes that idea if it's an available option, as do I.

I like the idea, personally of the convex mirror, AND the little light warning system. I am just anal retentive that way.

oh that's good to know. Where did you read that? I think we'd probably go for the 2.0L but I haven't gotten really that far. I hate that the dealers close at 6 today bec I don't really want to drive a car in rush hour.

Re: Need some car input--do you drive any of these vehicles?

We drove the Buick Encore and the GMC Terrain tonight (Sinclair, not sure if we'd buy from them...) We eliminated the Buick pretty quick. It's a nice car inside but it's narrow and tall and short. It made me feel like I was in a slightly larger SmartCar. All the cargo hold is gone for the seats. DH ...

Perfect, I will relay this to DH. He likes to negotiate. I know he and my dad will discuss pricepoints. He likes the value of the Mazda. I feel like it still seems a little "outdated" in the bells and whistles inside but with the safety bells it's better than the ford. I still have a LOT m...
