What Your Car Says About Your Personality

What Your Car Says About Your Personality

We all know that minivans are driven by soccer moms, luxury car drivers are rude, and lifted truck drivers have something to prove, right?

Are you the kind of person who believes the only job worth doing is the one you do for yourself? If so, then no doubt you are the type of driver who prefers to shift your own gears and work your own clutch pedal when hitting the open highway or local city streets. There are some drivers as well who claim that a manual transmission is essential to actually getting in touch with a true love of driving. But what if you don’t have enough cash in your bank account to afford that BMW sport sedan you had always promised you would buy yourself so you would learn to love your commute again?
