    I'm not sure females have inherent differences in vehicle preferences, but I think it might be easy to misconstrue what they are driving. They frequently seem to be the ones hauling kids around, so even if they'd prefer a convertible, their lifestyle responsibilities may drive their vehicle more than their personal preference. I'd want to know more about how this survey was conducted and analyzed personally.
