It all depends on your life style. I have a convertible and love it. I don't have kids and only sometimes have to take my dogs with me, (They have seat belts and doggles so they can ride safely with the top down.) My husband has an SUV which is great for our vacations and when we need to get larger things home, or by 20 bags of mulch for the beds. I do think my husbands next vehicle will be a truck though and my next one an SUV. However I my keeping my car.
