THOSE DAMN SUV's
    #1391383 - 03/19/03 12:46 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

i think it's really silly when people get all bent out of shape about SUVs. yes, they're gas guzzlers... yes, they're big.

excessive? perhaps... but that's not for you and i to decide... if someone wants to buy one, that's their call. if they want to spend 20 cents a mile to drive around, it's up to them...

people go and bitch about SUVs causing pollution and using up fossil fuels... i ask.. how much of our total fossil fuel consumption is owed to SUVs? do these people realize that anyone who has older appliances or older windows and doesn't replace them is wasting far more energy? what about people who don't carpool when they can or drive when they don't need to?

we all waste energy... SUVs are just a high-profile way that seems unnessecary and excessive. they are not the culprits though.

it's trendy to hate SUVs and their owners. but it's a silly and empty thing to bitch about.

I love all 3 of my SUV's.

And most of the bitching in this forum is silly and empty.

I drive an SUV. Not a big one though. And yes I really do need it.

where i live, it's rarely icy or snowy and the roads are good. i don't drive people or stuff around, and so i drive a corolla. manual. over 33 mpg. i have no problem with people who buy SUVs though. it's just not my thing. i could see maybe getting a pickup someday though.

I was recently going to get my haircut, and the only space available in the parking lot was a compact parking spot. Now, I have a pretty small car, so this wouldn't normally be a problem for me, except for the fact that this parking spot was right between an SUV and a pickup(both of them also in compact parking spots). I had to crawl out through the back door. Can't these people read??? If it says "compact," that means you can't park that monstrosity there!

ROTFL  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:


The SUV's are just one small drop in the ocean. For example air-conditioning is probably a much bigger problem. We're generally using to many resources.
I think that the energy price and the energy consuming technology should be taxed more for the damage that is done to the nature. That would incourage the investments in cleaner technology and reduce the energy consumption.
I pay about 50% more for the gasoline than in the USA so I drive a small economic car. Would a cheaper gasoline & a big car make me happier? Absolutely not. :tongue:
