It's sad the way these folks have had their minds manipulated to make them thing they need an SUV. As a side note, I was reading the description of the Lincoln Navigator the other day. There's a note in the fine print "note: This vehicle is not intended for snow plowing". Gee, I thought it was a truck :-) >It's also fun to watch someone in a Hummer or other guzzler pass one >station, to get gas from one that's selling for half a cent less per litre. You see that all the time in these groups. Someone buys a (higher) performance car for $28K plus and then asks "do I have to buy premium ?". First, I assume that most of them have never bothered to calculate how little extra premium costs them over a year (unless you have one of those gas guzzling SUV's at 12mpg). Second, they just paid big bucks for a new car - and now they've whining about having to pay an extra couple bucks a week at the pump. LOL. Bob
