I hate cars.

DH is buying a "new"-to-us car today. I hate spending money on cars. I don't give a crap what I drive. Anyone else like this?

Agreed. As long as it has a radio, a/c and room for my 6'5" DH's legs, I'm good.

*edit - And of course room for DD car seat.

I despise driving. I avoid it whenever possible, and prefer biking or walking. I could bike most places around our previous home, and we are moving to the Seattle area next week so I don't think I'll have an issue biking there either. However since DH needs a car for work, and I drive when I have to I prefer our car to be safe, and reliable when it's needed.

I'm the same. If it drives and has ac, I'm not too concerned with it otherwise.

I kind of see cars as a necessary evil in our lives. I wish I could bike to work, but it's too far!

It's definitely needed in most places. I hope you like the new car either way, you might be pleasantly surprised.

Nope. I love to drive and I love new cars.

Can't say I agree. I love driving and I love new cars, especially because I couldn't afford them until recently. The only thing I dislike is LA traffic, but since there's nothing I can do about that, I can at least make damn sure I like what I'm sitting in while I'm stuck in it.

I hate cars as well. They cost way to much money. My battery died the other day and now it's screwing up even worse.
