grocery-getter
 n.— «Entry-level cars must provide reasonable interior and ride comfort, have sufficient power, carry cargo and return good fuel economy. All five of this year’s entries address these needs. I have one quibble: if these are the cars we often refer to as “grocery-getters,” why don’t any of them have grocery bag hooks?» —“Econoboxes meet range of needs” by Jil Mcintosh Toronto Star (Canada) Nov. 2, 2006.
