So what are your favorite cars in the many different types of cars there are. I not sure how I should categorize so any changes would be fine.
SUV: Volkswagen Touareg (just not the V6), Range Rover Sport, Jeep SRT-8.
Pickup: Ford F-250, Dodge Ram 1500.
Minivan: Who here likes minivans? Honda Odyssey I guess.
Sport Coupe: BMW 645Ci, G-35
luxury Sedan: Mercedes Benz E-55, BMW M-5
Convertible: Mercedes CLK-55, BMW-M3 convertible
Compact: 2007 Honda Civic, Volkswagen Golf.
Mid Sized mid priced sedan: Volkswagen Jetta.
Those are some of my favorites what about yours? Im sure there are other categories I could add.

SUV: Tahoe - seats 5 in comfort but GM recognizes with this model that I don't need to transport a kindergarten class on a daily basis. If you ever need to work on it you can practically stand in the engine bay.
Pickup: GM diesel
Minivan: I'd rather stick my dick in an oven.
Sport Coupe: M3 - and if you disagree you're wrong
luxury Sedan: Old style BMW 7 series (E38 chassis)
Convertible: Mazda Miata - brilliant execution of a concept
Compact: Mazda 3 - actually handles well and doesn't look like a dust buster
Mid Sized mid priced sedan: Camry - I don't like any cars in this class so it might as well be reliable! I guess it depends on what we mean by mid priced though.

my friends dad is a car dealer and imports American cars. He has a Corvette, an Escalade, and also some other cars. They change them frequently, but I got to try the Escalade, and I thought it was awesome. Especially in black with tinted windows, it looks like an FBI car
That's cool. The Corvette is an awesome sports car. The Escalade is an embarrassment. Shame on General Motors for making such garish trash.
If you want an American mobster, VIP car, go for a black Lincoln Town Car.

Quoting AirPacific747 (Reply 18): I have noticed that American cars are generally much softer in the suspension than European cars
...and that is what one should look for in a practical everyday driver/luxury car. German cars are great if you're driving around cones all day. Daily traffic, potholes, passing people up quick, nothing beats an American V8.
