SUVs are a scourge on the planet Earth and should be decimated....without the owners inside of course. ;) Don't get me wrong and accuse me of generalizing. Some are good well-designed vehicles. My brother owns one in Vermont, USA. It is a good family car and he has two small children now. However, there most definitely are too many on the road. Poluttting road hogs most of them (except my brother). -jw -- 1984 900 S hatchback 136K mi. young!
