Old lady car?

The last 6 or 7 mk3 hatchbacks I passed on the road were driven by women in the 50-70 age range. I never guessed this to be an old lady car, but it has me wondering now. WTF did I buy?

Gas is $5.20 a gallon here. I don't get people using trucks. Dealers push them to guys even if you go in looking for a specific car

Possible they are rental cars, just look for the barcodes on the windows. Down here I see more Focus rentals on the road than people who actually own or lease them.
