Having a BMW makes one a snob???? And, here I thought that being labeled a snob had to do with bad manners--I am so disillusioned.

Cars I would never own:
Small, economy hatchbacks (scare me in traffic)
Toyota Camry
Smart For 2 (unless it was used as a golf cart)
Kia (don't like the look at all)
Toyota Corolla
Toyota Prius (too many bad stories from an orthopedic colleague of my mother's)
Passat (have had as a rental in Europe and don't like)

I never cared for them either, but the new Optima looks pretty nice. The front grill not so nice though.

I agree with every car on her list...I doubt I'll own ANY of them either.

I have an F-150 and a Corvette and my fiance now has a new Escalade...does that make us snobby? Hopefully within the next two years I'll be able to purchase a Cadillac CTS-V...is aspiring to own something that is luxurious and performance-oriented considered snobby nowadays? I think you are confusing having good taste with a snobbish attitude.

What would you rather own...

I would take the $30k Camry over the $65K Cadillac and put the extra $35k I would save towards my retirement.

Me too! I'd probably travel with that money though.

I'll never buy or drive a GM product again. The only exception would be an old pre 70's muscle car, but even then I prefer Ford and Chrysler in the muscle dept.
Nowadays I have an 08 Civic and a 97 Ranger. Those 2 fit me well.

I've learned to never say never....

...but, I never want to own a minivan.

So far, so good.

How about a 3- or 4- year-old Cadillac which would cost about $30? That way you could enjoy owning a Cadillac at a Camry price.
