^^That's one opinion.
Another is that it doesn't matter what you drive, as long as it's reliable and safe. If it breaks down all the time, then yes, you need something better.
But people that think they need to drive an Audi or BMW make me laugh.
It doesn't matter what you drive. Nobody cares.
I drive a 99 Nissan Frontier pickup, which has been very reliable. I don't need a 2008+ vehicle because mine works fine, and was paid off a long time ago. More money for doing things I really love...
