Your thrifty with your money and never overspend.
Your not into sports and your a very relaxed person.
You really don't care what others drive, you want to be comfortable in your own skin. ( car)

I drive a 96 Suburban, very well taken care of and very clean. If you saw me, a 39 year old guy driving around in a Suburban like that, what would you think it says about me as a guy?

Just curious.
I would assume that you had a larger family to need a car that size.

Do you take your dirty shoes off before you get in to your vehicle?

Very clean as in good shape or very clean as in not dirty?

I drive a 98 Jeep Cherokee and it is dirty and muddy. I am a 39 year old woman. What does that say about me?

Nevermind my question. I see that you say well taken care of and very clean.

I would say that you take care of your vehicles and that maybe where you live requires more room in the back of your vehicle with room also for passengers.

I see them still on the road but I wouldn't say they are in good shape anymore for the most part.

I totally disagree that it's not a male trait to keep a vehicle clean. Many men are ultra picky about their vehicles, it's more often men who are out waxing and detailing their cars and trucks, careful down to the very last detail.

I also think what someone drives does reveal a lot about them and their lifestyle. What gets confusing is when people have more than one vehicle, one for camping trips and another for daily commuting. Or in areas where there is a lot of snow and salt, what they drive in the winter isn't what they drive in the summer.

I don't know if it's a male trait or not. It may be an 'individual' trait.

Maybe it's just me but there are much more important things to look for about a man than his type of car.

I'm a happily married 46 year old guy, no children and drive this; A 2013 black on black Cadillac CTS-V Sedan.

Here it is at the dealership before purchase; Yes I love this car and so does my wife, yes I keep it spotless and yes I've pushed it notably past 125 MPH on a track in central New Jersey.

It's a symbol of my low status.
My '79 AMC Pacer limo is a certified panty dropper. The ladies want to ride in this thing and will do anything to be seen in it! Yeah, I've rented it out to Vivid Entertainment and Wicked Pictures a few times for some porno shoots. It's that -itchin'!

Seriously though, both of these cars are mine. I obviously keep one of them spotless. The Cobalt serves a certain purpose. It's a backup vehicle in case something happens to my Optima. But I don't buy vehicles for any recognition. I buy them because I want them, and because I also know they're reliable and get real good fuel mileage.
