Reliability/practicality/price. Cars are a money pit regardless but I don't see the point of going overboard and out of budget on the worse asset you can own. Everyone has their own preference though!

This is a poorly designed poll based around a broad question.

Different things are important based on the purpose of the car you are buying, your socioeconomic status, etc.

What are you trying to achieve with this poll? Typical RFD will say it's price and reliability.

Easy, its fun which was why I chose other. I wouldn't put up with all of its impracticality if it wasn't fun to drive. It just so happens its very reliable and more fuel efficient than expected.

Not trying to achieve anything in particular, its more so a discussion.

Need to allow multiple votes.
For me, it was power and features, but shit reliability.
For the wife, it was reliability and luxury, but shit power

What I look for...

DESIGN both exterior and interior especially. The BMW 3/4 series, Subaru STi is a great examples. Reason why I haven't purchased one is because of the interior. Bland.

POWER & FEATURES speaks for itself.

Agreed. I need a car that goes when I need it to go no matter where I am, is practical enough to be easy to drive and transport all my friends and stuff, and doesn't cost too much. Other stuff is irrelevant if those 3 are missing. My first car had 90 hp and my second had 130 and both were more than enough for me, so power isn't something I care about at all. A 300 hp luxury SUV with 20 inch wheels and every feature in the book is useless if it won't start when you're 5 hours away from the city in the woods on a camping trip.
