+1. If the ONLY reason to get a car is your significant other (if he/she is even at that stage yet), then forget it. Cars are expensive: maintenance, gas, insurance, parking, etc.
I would stick the cash in a diversified balanced portfolio of ETFs and rely on Zipcar/Autoshare/Cars2Go. And if you find you REALLY need a car, then maybe lease a basic car for ~$2-300/mo.
But whatever you do, get it out of that savings account. The bank is making a ton of money off yours.
