I own suv AND it's pretty good....of course it's not a race car and you can easily roll it over, Yes it eats petrol but hey....it's safer than normal car....i say it's GAY, let people choose what they want to drive! (one thing is wrong now is that there's 500HP SUVS)

P.S Nearly crashed my ML55 after i getting from 7 to ML...i wasn't ready for such difference i guess....but thanks god my reaction still quick, or i just got lucky.

ya thats bullshit, its not like suv's are the only gas guzzlers...i bet you i waste more gas then an average family with an suv...

and instead of bothering people with thier cars they should be going after the real problems, DRUGS, cocaine & heroin are more important issues....

I don't understand the negative reaction here, do we LIKE SUVs or something?

No, SUVs are the only gas guzzlers. Light trucks and SUVs are allowed to have worse has mileage than all other cars.

For the gas they use and for what they do, SUVs are a colossal waste.

As for the terrorism commercial, it's a PARODY of a US government anti-DRUG commercial aired in the US. You can watch them at http://www.mediacampaign.org/mg/television.html. And since it's a parody of a US Government commercial, it potentially makes the US Government "completely and utterly stupid beyond any normal comprehension." Check out "Sophie" or "Timmy" on the mediacampaign page.

I hate SUVs. We had an ML320, and it sucks ass compared to my E30 or the E46 we traded the MB in for. Yes, the MB was more pimp. But the performance sucked, the sound system sucked, the fit and finish sucked, snow performane sucked, was a bitch to wash, and was uncomfortable as hell.

If you need to tow trailers, fine. But this is for the legions of city-dwelling suburbanites who drive Escalades to work and back everyday, think about it. You're not as safe. People on the road aren't as safe. You're wasting gas. You have to wash this thing with a telescoping mop. You can't fit into parking spaces.

Oh, and Betray, no hard feelings, but trade that thing in and get an 318is!

Well I will say that already was said.
I love SUVs and after drving around in Betrays Cherokee I love them even more, they are so chill to drive.

Also saying that oil supports terrorists is like saying airliner companies support terrorism with missles (9/11 event)

Also my car eats apprx same gas per 100km as Betray's cherokee.

Also lets go back to 80ties and remember who supported Afghanistan with weapons and who actually trained Osama?? USA!!
