A) Price was right
B) Fuel economy matters
C) The car looks pretty damn sharp, handles well enough in stock form, and has plenty of power for my everyday needs.

I'll own a sports car when I am financially comfortable enough to afford a second car and my own garage to work on it. Right now, I need a relatively fun, inexpensive, reliable car to get me from A to B and haul my road bike or mountain bike around. Sure, I'll add a beefier sway bar, stiffer springs, and wider tires, but overall, a sports car has no place in my life at the moment.

It was probably much easier to own many different cars in your younger days. We get dinged with high insurance rates and our credit is t as fully established yet, not to mention not many of have the high paying jobs to own a new Challneger, or a mustang GT just yet.

I'm slowly building my car future though, I already have my motorcycle, got my gas saver in the Focus, after this I'll have my muscle car

How is this poll going to be accurate when people like me who don't own 2012's can vote too?

Hopefully non-2012 owners will do the smart thing and not vote, lol. Seriously though, there's no way to regulate who votes(outside of membership time/post minimums), so it's pretty much on an honor system. By no means would this be considered particularly accurate by poll numbers alone.

Well the title is "2012 owners what's your age?" and it's posted in the 2012 section, I think the op assumed only members that own a 2012 would participate...

Well it's really supposed to be my dad's car, but it's more of a whoever one wants to take the family car to use. So I'll say two 53 year olds and one 19 year old. My 24 year old sister doesn't want to drive it for some reason. :/ I'm telling her she's missing out on the fun.
