    So I realize I'm very new to these forums and will probably get a beating for asking this but in spite of that I am forced to pose the question... What is up with you guys' love affair with hatchbacks??? I mean am I missing something? I can't stand the things... they look ridiculous no matter what you do to them, and I'm sorry if that's offensive to any of you its just my childish opinion but still... :mellow:

    Idk I guess I want to hear the other side of the story, why do you love hatchbacks?

    I'm pretty sure I don't care about your opinion. ;)

    I've never owned a 4 door car. I've had 2 coupes and a hatchback... ok one of the coupes was a 'notchback'. I love a well modded hatch, lowered, nice rims, no decals, etc.

    ^ So just because they're better for racing??

    And don't get me wrong, I'll take a coupe over almost any 4-door. I'm talking about hatchbacks, and I take back what I said about me not being able to digest any of em, some do look real nice but for the most part I don't like them.

    They weigh less and handle better than their coupe and 4 door counterparts. And have much more utility because of all that extra space in the back. Its all win.

    I used to have quite a disdain for hatchbacks when I was younger, but after seeing enough clean well-built hatches, they really grown on you.

    Less weight and I personally like their looks. Plus some girls like the thrill of getting it on with the hatch open... Just sayin.

    This is my car, want to know why I like it? Because I do.

    That's all the justification I need.

    I don't even understand the reasoning behind this question. It's like asking "Hey, why do you like to wear pants? Like what is your infatuation with pants?" :huh:

    Less weight and more room/estate in the back.

    Ditto for me. I especially hated the EK hatch. Now I feel I should've offed myself for it.

    I love my EJ hatch because it's got the room of a four-door, but the utility of a station wagon when you fold the seats down. My fit is a 5-door hatch, which I can live with, but I really didn't need all that extra weight of the doors. The fit is actually classified as a "mini station wagon" by the US DOT, so I dunno if I can rightfully call him a hatch.

    Everyone knows that station wagons are the new sports cars, but hatches are sporty. Too bad the rest of amerika doesn't feel that way.

    E will back me up on this: Wagon FTW.
