a car must have
1) 4 wheels
2) an engine
* enough space to carry people AND their luggage (in some cars, you have 7 seats. But in this case, forget about any luggage)
* CD changer, radio
* electric windows
* No air conditionning
On this list, the only thing I don't have in my Corsa is space... But for the price I paid it, that's OK

Let's start from the basics -
AUTOMATIC! - I can't drive a manual and have no desire to learn.
That's about it. Here in Colorado I drive and SUV, and believe me, after blizzard of 2003 I am glad I do. If you ever want to get to rwy 8/26 both sides, SUV is a way to go. If you ever want to go camping over continental divide, SUV is a nice thing to have.
Money does not bring you happiness. But it's better to cry in your own private limo than on a cold bus stop.

you know, it's not all that hard to drive a manual. i actually find automatis a pain in the ass. you have to floor it to get it to downshift and the stupid shifter on the column idea. (who thought of that anyway?)
as for suv's, people wonder why it's hot as hell. keep spewing out more exhaust from your car, we'll drown ourselves!

A very nice list from me..
-Cruise Control (Shame on most Euro cars that dont have this)
-Readable Tachometer (Ive seen some sports cars that have one where you need a magnifying glass)
-Onboard Computer (Not necessarily Nav. + CD / FALO / FALT), South Africa">LCD but basic mpg, miles left to empty, temp etc.)
-In case of SUVs if you dont have 4x4 (Preferably with 4LOW and 4HI modes) its like being of the male gender and not having genitalia.
-Automatic or Clutchless Manual

and speakers (Bose preferably)
-V6 or higher minimum 4.0L, Minimum horsepower for SUV (200) for Sports Car (250)
-Power Everything, Includes windows, mirrors, locks with keyless entry.

"i'm not green, i'm practical! people don't need a 400hp 8.4L V10 to go from work to home!
give me any car with a 170+ hp engine and a decent maual transmission. they're jsut as good!"
You just said we will drown because of SUVs. That is not being practical, its just a stupid statement based on no facts...What the heck is a 400hp 8.4L V10..if your going to make something up at least make it realistic ffs
