: Than you in advance.

I've heard "cheese bus" used as a derogatory term for a school bus but I assumed it was because of the traditional yellow color of the buses. Never heard of a cheese car. Maybe the speaker is criticizing the car because it appears to be made for carrying a suburban "soccer mom" with children, and it's like a school bus because it carries children.
