Subject: SUV = EFFICIENT YET EXCESSIVE
Ok, I used to be an SUV basher like yourself, but I have found my stance on it change as I now own one myself, and drive one on a very frequent basis. I'm not here to try and change your opinion, I just hope my words can help you understand why someone might want one of these "monstrosities". Ok first lets look at the options if you want a big car. You have an SUV, Minivan, or a Truck. Now if you have a large family, like me, I can almost guarantee your answer to this question. Lets see, trucks suck in general and serve no purpose besides to be gay (unless your actually using it for work purposes, which would be understandable), and I'm sure you wouldn't want to drive around a shitty ass minivan when you have 4 kids in the backseat. When driving that, you are automatically labeled a pussy ass bitch whos wife bitches him around for breakfast.
Who wants that? Nobody, and if your telling me youd rather drive a Toyota Sienna instead of a bitchin off-road owning SUV, your lying to yourself.
Now, there are exceptions to my views. I, along with you and others do see the excessiveness of this trend. This must stop. The Nissan Armada or the Infiniti QX56 pretty much serve no purpose but to look gay and have virtually no offroad capabilities, even if you had a family of 6 you could still get a better SUV. Or when you see some dumbass mom driving around a bigass mofo car with her shitty kid in the front seat, she deserves to be shot. But do see that since America is rich, and it is a reality, that having an SUV is pretty much just a luxury which many of us enjoy, including myself. It's just like having a nice-ass house. You dont need it, but damn do you love it.
I love small cars as much as the next guy and I love how they dont drive like a slug on wheels. I don't like driving my SUV every day (but do enjoy the offroad capabilities and beastliness of it), but it sure beats the hell out of any minivan or other alternative. If I was able to buy a Porche 911 Turbo, your damn right I would. So the only thing I ask is that next time you see a SUV or about to talk shit on one, think about it.
Would you donate the money you saved buying your minivan to a charitable cause? (I thought not, and neither would I)
