How Do You Feel About Your Car?

Huggingcar Drivers everywhere depend on their vehicles to get them to and from places but the bond often travels deeper, as vehicles become not only a source of transportation but also a source of pride, affection, love and sentiment. We polled Road & Travel readers to ask them how they felt about their cars. Do they love their car? Hate it? Wish they had a new one? Use it to impress others? Use it to run over a husband? Oops, I mean use it as a bargaining chip in a divorce settlement? Ever made love in one? You'll be as surprised as we were to learn just how many ways we use our cars for more than just transportation.

We thought we'd get about 200 responses to the "Emotional Car Poll" but instead we received more than 2,200 sharing just what their vehicles mean to them. Do you have a relationship with your car? We want to know how you feel about your car so chime in. Check out what everyone had to say.
