Is it a 'car' an 'automobile' or a 'vehicle'?

I'm throwing my lot behind vehicle, and I think we should standardize on calling roll-up pages (Hybrid Vehicles, Vehicle Financing) vehicles, and then calling a car a car where applicable (Compact Cars, Luxury Cars). -hypermiler

So, generally we want to go with the words people really use, as evidenced by search volumes. Cars vastly dominates in almost all cases. I may have violated this myself, but I've called the main hybrid page "hybrid cars". I realize that "cars" is a funny term to desribe all vehicles types, but SEO is critical and needs to be determinative. Within page mentions are less critical. It's the page names (and hence the internal links) that rule. beenine 19:15, 17 June 2006 (EDT)
