Re: Your suggestoin for a SUV



If that was true, why doesn't the rest of the world drive 3 tonne SUV's?
They're unstable, they're uneconomical, they're slower, they don't handle, and people who drive them are either women on the school run, or men with incredibly small penises who think (erroneously) driving a SUV makes them look good.
They're handy for towing, or shifting heavy equipment about, granted, but not as good as a truck.How often do you see them used for that? Not Very. They're used by misguided fools for posing in, and women who like to be high up to see out.
See the light, drive a car!
Easier, cheaper, faster, more economical, better handling, better ride, more comfort and far less chance of the tires exploding and you turning into some product liability geek posting "My tires blew out, I want my money back" on newsgroups or being confused for a redneck called Cletus.
As for safety in traffic, learn to drive! A properly driven car that actually handles will avoid most accidents. Some lumbering 3 tonne SUV is more likely to cause one.

The only difference is the liberals want to ban everyone elses or all of them "after" they buy theirs.

There we go agreeing again. That was my thought as well. ;)

Your trouble is you think you're 30db smarter than anyone else. Why don't you run your life rather than others?

Because he's a liberal/socialist. This is what they do.

I'm not a liberalist / socialist at all. I just appreciate a good vehicle when I see one. I'm not telling anybody what to do, what to think, or what to drive.
I'm airing my opinion on SUV's and what I consider to be a ridiculous trend for driving oversized, underpowered, thirsty, unstable, bad handling, slow, natsy looking heaps of shite in the name of "safety". How can something with a center of gravity about 4 ft off the ground handle well? It patently can't. It's like trying to get a Hippo to stunt ride a go-ped, only a lot more dangerous to anyone watching.

Your kidding, right? How is the world do you come up with 'center of gravity about 4 ft off the ground?' The greatest mass of a vehicle is in the drive train. The center of gravity of a vehicle is generally BELOW the floor, at a point between it and the axle center. The center of gravity on the average SUV is probably no more than two to four inches higher than in the average automobile and most of that is a result of the difference in wheel diameter. For a vehicle to roll over it must be raised up above a 45 degree angle. To see the effect, watch a few vehicle chases on TV or in a movie to sell how many SUV's will slide completely in a circle and still not roll or even lift a wheel off the ground. As to under powered, you can only be talking about small car based SUV's, since truck engines generally have much more torque than a similar size car engine and develop it at a much lower RPM.

See? Just as I said: This is what a liberal/socialist does. And they're all so much smarter than we are. And they'll tell you: this is why they should run our lives -- because the rest of us are just too stupid to run our own lives or make our own decisions. They long for the days of the Soviet Union, yet I don't see any of them emmigrating to Cuba . . . wonder why?

: )

more chance of that than of an articulate SUV driver....
Anyone who buys a vehicle "cos it's big and I don't care if I kill people in something smaller" obviously has serious mental problems. Oh, and a superiority complex. Most probably drive a 3 ton, 4wd, 9mpg SUV with a big chrome grille too.
"I drive an SUV cause it's American <cue national anthem>. I don't mind the fact that if I lose control of this barely guided heap of bad handling junk, I'm very likely to kill a lot of americans, it makes me look big. It's got enough cup holders for the entire football team to drink beer out of"

If I felt the way you apparently do about SUV's, I would not buy one if I were you.

None, I never keep my cars more than two years, not cost effective. The term is quicker, even a 4cy can go fast. ;)

You might look at the Ford Escape and the Hyundai as well they are car based. Both have V6 engines in addition to a 4cy as those mentioned but can be purchased for three to four thousand less, even with the V6.
