    Help! Did I just buy a chick car?

    Green Honda CR-V. Mini-SUV, styled similar to the smaller Lexus SUVs.


    EDIT: I love the vehicle now that I am over the initial jitters of the expense and swapped it for a color (silver w/a darker grey interior) more suited to my cycling activities.

    The horn goes... peep, peep.

    Definitely a chick vehicle. The minivan of the current decade.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    Sort of a chick car. The good news is that it can be fixed. Some intelligent styling modifications can make it a very different vehicle; start doing research.

    For starters, I saw this lightly modified CRV at the 2007 SEMA show. It looked great:

    I think all this car has on it is custom air dam, custom grill, custom wheels, window tint, rear spoiler, exhaust treatment. Some butch sports racks on the roof might help, too.

    That's usually when you are driving a 15 year old pickup with dents on all four corners and a cracked windshield, not a vehicle that soccer moms cart the kids around in!

    Hey who cares what others think? Go with your first instinct! When I bought a Subaru Outback years ago, several people said to me, "boy that's a conservative car you bought." But when I went up to Tahoe to go snowboarding, Subarus were the cool cars. Your CR-V is cool in some crowd, you just gotta find it, like uh... there's gotta be some scene where you fit in... uh... oh I know, the soccer mom set at the local park!

    Edit: Dang it cycle17, you brought up soccer mom while I was composing!

    Depends on the chick. Depends on the car.

    In your cars case, "cute car"

    Dude, if the car fits your needs, there's nothing to worry about. If you have a nice new car, no one really cares what it is. People are making fun of you because of your insecurity, not because of the car itself.

    BWAHAHAH - you guys are relentless!!!


    Dood - just make sure when you roll down that driver's window - you hang out that big hairy arm.



    Oh and the tissue box sitting on the passenger seat is a no-no.




    (P.S. - I think it looks dam functional!)

    I got a dark green 95 ford aerostar.

    What it amounts to is a big green box I can fill with bikes and parts that has over 209,000 miles on it and a V-6 you can't kill.

    The paint is crap, bits of bodywork are missing, and it's been named "The Green Turd", and best of all, it could blow up tomorrow and I wouldn't care, the gf would be in a bind since it's her ride to work, but that's not my problem.

    Hey, I'm a chick with a 18year old pick up with dents on 2 corners, and a pinged windshield. I'd be willing to do a straight trade....


    Don't worry! It DOES NOT scream 'chick car'. Enjoy it.
