SUV and Gas

  1. Jun 21, 2004 #1
    During a thread a started a few months ago, many claimed that Sports Utility Vehicles consume extremely large amounts of gas, as opposed to a sedan or other vehicles. (Not talking about those who were speaking only of full-size SUVs)

    Edmunds, "Why do you hate the SUV?"

    Just thought it would interesting to share.

    Why are you bringing this up again? Just drive whatever you want and keep quiet and nobody will care.

    Why not? I'm not going to just here and watch, read and hear hypocrites spread false images on SUV drivers making them feel needless guilt. Doing so would be ridiculous :mad:

    The people who should keep quiet are the hypocritical groups that seem to have problems with SUVs based on flawed information. Like those publishing biased books out against SUVs ( Keith Bradsher).

    They suggest that SUVs were made to destroy the environment and kill people even though they never mention that traffic-related deaths have gone downward despite the record breaking sales of SUVs each year.

    Was it the "zoom zoom" catch phrase that drew you in? :rolleyes:

    Each car/vehicle/SUV/anything else you can think of has its advantages and limitations.
    Quit trying to beat up the proverbial dead horse.

    In what way is this topic a "dead" horse?

    You have a way of ending your posts without explaining any of your comments.

    This SUV topic has already been discussed before. It's a dead horse, a dead topic.

    I explained to you in the first line of my post if you only read it.
