Not this dad!

Wouldn't be caught in a mini-van if I had any say.

Give me an SUV, truck or even a small sedan over a mini-van.

OK, we're all thinking it, I'm just saying it: Any dad who prefers a minivan over an SUV needs to hand over his man card right now.

The title of this article does not seem to match the majority of the research quoted in the article itself.

The evidence seems to indicate men prefer higher performance/flashy vehicles vs females. I'm sure they just twisted the title to invent a controversy to get people to read and comment.

I wouldn't be caught dead in an ugly prius. That being said I would certainly drive a Tesla if the price wasn't so ridiculous expensive.

I'll keep my man card thank you very much.

If you believe this, I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'll sell you at wholesale.

I am glad my wife loves her 5.4 liter, 8 cylinder, 4x4 SUV!

I'm a practical guy. When I was a teenager I was really worried about what people thought of me and was convinced a sports car was the only choice. I grew up. All this stuff about "hand over your man card" is silly. I have news for you--an SUV is no different than a minivan most of the time, except that it takes more gas. I'm amazed at how insecure people get about this--it feels like High School all over again.

You won't see me shopping at the mall, buying expensive clothes when I can get the same functionality at the thrift shop. I don't spend $50 for a haircut. I don't eat fancy French food. I don't break my bank for a car that looks "cool." I want something that gets me and my family from here to there. I would rather keep money in my pocket rather than down the gas tank. If anyone comes up with a car with better functionality and efficiency, I'll gladly trade in what I'm driving. I really couldn't care less what the guy next to me thinks about my ride.

It's weird that everybody hates the inversion, but loves their huge diesel truck and their ginormous suburban.
