    I love my SUV

    It gets driven safely. It runs cleaner than a lot of cars. It's big, yes, but that space is nessecary. It's four wheel drive. It's not a Hummer, but the H3 was considered. It's V8 powered. When it pulls in the driveway covered in mud with water dripping from the wheelwells, we hose it off and go out to dinner in a nice-looking, comfortable vehicle. What the hell kinda bike is that useful?

    Mine was purchased only because I needed the room to carry my two greyhounds around (didn't work so well in my car). If not for that, I'd still be in a (paid for) car.

    You can do the same thing with a smaller SUV. . you know that right? Get a truck if you need space, a suv is a van with a bigger engine and less usefulness.

    Even $5/gal is only 75-80 % of what it costs here. I wouldn't mind seeing the price doubled over here. To begin with. Might get a few more cars off the streets.

    Pffft. By the time gas is $5/gal U.S., it'll be a buck ninety-nine Canadian.

    i could poke a hole in the gas tank of Tercel and hit things with it too, but you have to hit them several times to get the same amount of damage and the Tercel restricts peoples rights, but does not actually deprive them of their rights. i am gonna stick with my ginormous suv, thanks.

    There - fixed.

    I've had vans, mini-vans, traditional station wagons, and SUV's. SUV's are FAR more useful across a broad range of applications than any of the others - especially if you have an active family, a dog or two, and all the gear that goes along with it.

    Last van was basically good for nothing, FWD with a crappy six and ugly as anything. Ours is actually a pretty small SUV, and gets better mileage than the van. The Jeep pulls a trailer, hauls dogs, pulls up hills with confidence, and it's worth having for what we use it for.

    Whoop-di-doodle. So what's the point of this thread? Just random trolling for flames?
