About cars...my husband's approach is to just pick what looks good if he sees something that attracts him. I prefer to research for weeks in advance of going on a pricing spree then researching what we found then selecting the best option for us.
My husband turned over the researching for our last vehicle to me since he does not enjoy reading car reviews or having long discussions about them. We are satisfied with our two door Jeep Cherokee Sport. I think we should updgrade to a newer 4 door in a year or two though.
