    My bf has been busting on me about how my car is bringing down property values in the neighborhood so I (jokingly) told him if he didn't like it to buy me a new 1. Well, he said ok. He said we should look at mini vans because I was going to need 1. I'd rather get something sportier. So what would you get in the 25-35 range?

    What are you driving now and why will you need a minivan?

    Get yourself the truck of the year, the Ford F-150. Get one with four doors of you need room. Don't buy anything from Government Motors or Chrysler.

    I've been looking at the Ford F-150 Raptor myself:

    One badass truck.

    I was thinking more like a convertible Mitsubishi Eclipse or Mazda RX-8. :eusa_drool:

    I have an old Honda Civic. I think the mini van thing was a joke... (I'll just leave to the imagination what it meant :eusa_angel:).

    That truck looks nice but it's a little higher priced than we wanted to go. And I don't know about driving something so big, it kinda intimidates me.

    The regular F-150s aren't near as intimidating for a lady, and are in your price range. And they are sa-weet!

    You might think about the F-150 XLT. It comes nicely appointed with power everything, and they have a plethora of options for the interior, and the exterior color and trim.

    Mine is a 97 model, has 122,000 miles on it, and people still think it's brand new. I get questions and complements on it all day long. Oh and never any trouble at all with it, not even a flat tire, until a coupla weeks ago when I had to replace the alternator. Cheap job, only took an hour.

    Here it is, it's been a great little truck:

    You should get whatever you can afford on your own, since you have absolutely no reason to get in to legal contracts with someone you've known for a few months.

    FTR, I also think this little story is also a load of hooey.

    Stay away from the RX-8, they're horrible.

    The Nissan Altima Coupe is pretty nice, and in that price range.
