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  Smile

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 favorites, if I was to walk in with a blank check to a car dealer:

Sports Car: 2005/6 Pontiac GTO
Small Car: Mini Cooper S

The only cars I'd trade my Grand Prix in on...

Now if I had a really big blank check, there were at least a few cars I would have gone after at this year's Barrett-Jackson auto auction in Scottsdale:

1977 Olds 442 (big NASCAR fan, love this car)
1970 Chevy Chevelle Copo
1970 Pontiac GTO Judge Convertible
1964 Pontiac Banshee

...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.

European cars, especially German cars, are designed for European roads. That means either driving on the Autobahn in excess of 120 MPH, or driving at small roads. Therefore suspension is harder.

It really depends on what you want, but if you only drive tons of miles on highways, a softer suspension might make sense, even though I never found the suspension of German cars to be too hard.

Well yea I have noticed this and my VW does both of those things perfectly it hits 120mph very easily and takes the pot holes and bumps nice also.

Can agree with your more. I hate all those fake SUVs that cant do much, atleast the MDX is a bit sporty but the Honda Pilot? Not many great real all around SUVs but my favorites would be, Range Rover Sport or regular, LR3, Jeep Cherokee and Volkswagen Touareg, Mercedes G500 too.

I am interested to see how that is. It is based on the Volkswagen Touareg but I will imagine its going to be a bit more sporty and less utility and rugged than the Touareg.

SUV: Toyota 4Runner V8
Pickup: Nissan Titan

I have to make a comment about SUV's and pickups though. Anyone who buys for example the SRT-8 version of the Chrysler ones, or basically any high performing SUV/pickup is an idiot. The purpose is of an SUV/pickup is not to turn over sub 14 second quarter mile times but to either haul stuff or go off roading. It is the job of a sports sedan/coupe to handle well and push you in your seat. Soccer moms in their Tahoes can also refer to my comment about high performance SUVs/pickups.

Coupe: Mustang Shelby GT500
Compact: Mazda 3
Mid-size: Honda Accord V6 & Chrysler 300C SRT-8
Full-size: 1996 Chevy Impala SS Lingenfelter. Black.

That last one there, for those of you who dont know what it is, will tear apart most of your joker Corvettes and Mustangs on the road. My brother owns one and boy is it a wonderful feeling looking in the rear view mirror and seeing the expression on the face of the M3's driver.

Well I agree with you there a bit. But the problem is many of these SUVs cant go off road to begin with: X5, FX-35, Smaller Suvs, even Suburbans Explorers and Tahoes are not good for off roading but fine for pulling stuff and taking lots of people. But there are a few SUVs which can do both High Performance and Off Road. The SRT-8 would not be the best off road vehicle because of its lower height but it could still do it, and I would imagine with its 412hp V8 it could pull things too.
The Range Rover Sport and Range Rover Supercharged can go off road and perform very well on the road.
Mercedes G-55 Great on the road and also good off the road and can pull too.
But the best all around SUV would be the V8 or V-10 Volkswagen Toaureg. The V8 Touareg can tow 7,700lbs go 0-60 7.4s top speed of 140mph and do just about all the off roading you will ever need from a truck. Not even a Hummer H2 can beat a VW Touareg off roading. And that V-10 Turbo Diesel with 553lbs of Torque can pull just about anything.

I never get tired of car threads... here are my favorites-
SUV- dislike them too much to have a favorite
Sedan- BMW 330i (as long as it has a manual transmission and the sports package... a great drive)
Small car- Mini Cooper S. Drove my friend's, feels like a shifter kart but it is quite scary on the average american highway surrounded by hummers and escalades.
Sports car (under 50,000)- Nissan 350Z track package. I'm biased because I have one, and it certainly has its flaws, but it looks great with the Rays wheels and has excellent power, handling, and braking. Rough ride though.
Sports car (over 50,000)- 911S (the newest one, 997). The latest version of this car is just plain beautiful.
Dream car- Ferrari 355. The 360 and 430 may be faster, but Ferrari hit a high point with the looks on this one, and as prices go down (around 70,000 USD at the moment) I could one day dream of actually owning one.
