Is this crossover a chick car, or would I still retain some man points if I got one? I know of a certain 3rd-person-speaking planeteer that has one, perhaps he could enlighten me on reactions he's gotten from driving it...

Bob Dole traded in the RX-8 because Bob Dole wanted to be able to tow the bike somewhere after work on Fridays and when the weather didn't lend itself to a road trip.

After driving just about every other SUV/Soccer Mom vehicle available, the CX-7 was the best mix of handling and acceleration Bob Dole could find.

It's not an RX-8 by any stretch of the imagination, but it does what Bob Dole wants (decent MPG/tows the VTX on a trailer) without any problems, and it doesn't present any of the handling issues (understeer, oversteer, body roll) Bob Dole experienced when test driving the other options available.

A couple of Bob Dole's male friends initially gave Bob Dole some minor shit about driving the "soccer mom" car, but after riding in it and driving Bob Dole's drunk ass home in it, they pretty much shut the hell up.

If Bob Dole is man enough to drive a "chick" car, shouldn't you be man enough, too?

Who knows... Some idiots think the RX-8 is a chick car.

I guess I should google them and see what they look like. To me, a girly car is something with no power, like my 4 cylinder Contour.

Okay, I don't see how the RX8 is considered a chick car, but okay. Also, I think the CX7 is kina ugly. A little too aerodynamic looking for an SUV, IMO.

Sorry, I was referring to the Contour in your post.

I have known 4 single women that owned one and no men at all.

Oh, I know. I don't know why, but I used your post to reply to in order to state my findings on my little image search.

At least it's not a "I'd rather walk than be seen in that thing" kind of ugly.

I picked up one in an auction last year. Right off hand I think it is a '96. I've been using it ever since. I got it for $800. I'm a married guy with four kids, two of them are under 18. It doesn't have very much power but I'm a very mellow driver. I tend to set the cruise control right about the speed limit and leave it alone until I get to where I'm going.

Then again, I never really have given a shit what other people think of my vehicles. My previous car was an '83 Volvo Station Wagon with a "way back" seat that would fit seven people. Worked great because I would end up taking my four kids to school plus an extra kid or two when they had friends spend the night.

I don't know dude, an alleged "hetero" dude here at work wore f*cking Capri pants and a pink fuggin shirt last friday, on purpose and not to be a smart ass.
A month ago, while shopping for some new jeans, the little girl they had selling the clothes told me, in all seriousness, that she found "the guys who have the guts to wear girls pants are sexy, and are the only ones I will date".

So WTF, go buy a chick crossover vehicle, just odn't forget your capris

I love it.... However, don't forget about the great GM products that are out.... I would look at the GMC Acaida, Buick Encalve or Saturn Outlook if I was you
