Women care what kind of car you drive:
We don’t necessarily want every guy to drive a Maserati. We pay attention to the type of car a man drives, but just so we can get a sense of who he is. Does he drive a Jaguar (represents a taste for timeless, classy items)? A Prius (represents a concern for the environment or economic savvy)? Does he drive a muscle car (we all know what this represents). But, we would never want a man to get a “nice” car that didn’t fit his personality at all, just to impress someone. That action in and of itself is unattractive.
