    After reading a certain persons objections to sport utility vehicles in a previous thread I was curious as to how many of us actually own, drive and use them. This is by no means a diliberate intention to start a debate. I would really like to know how many people own them. I for one own a 1998 Chevrolet Suburban LT and I have zero regrets about it. I have a family, two dogs and it comes in quite useful. I also ski often, camp, tow a boat, go on vacations etc. It also has a 40 gallon fuel tank and because it isn't the primary family vehicle I only spend about $50 per month in fuel. So it's not just a "grocery getter". We normally have pretty brutal winters in Utah so I use the 4x4 alot. Also 4x4 or chains are required alot in the winter to go up our canyons to ski. So in my case it is a necessity, a very comfortable car, and safe for the family. In conclusion I find it a very practical vehicle for my lifestyle. Oh and BTW our other car is a Toyota 4-Runner and it does a great job as well. So we are a two SUV crew here with my crew. Anyone else?

    The family just recently bought a 2002 Jeep Liberty Limited Edition. 4WD.

    I love how it drives. I currently have a Firebird, but would love to also get my hands on a Chevy Avalanche one day. That's the SUV that converts into a pickup.

    The Boston Somersets (1902)
    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.

    Gozer the Traveller will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldronaii the Traveller came as a very large and moving Torb. Then of course in the third reconciliation of the last of the Meketrex supplicants they chose a new form for him, that of a Sloar. Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Sloar that day I can tell you.

    Kenny. If you got such a bug up your arse about Americans (as you clearly seem to have, nearly to the point of acting obsessive about it) I suggest you might be on the wrong site.

    Given.. y'know, Van Halen being American and all that stuff

    I've been a critic of SUV drivers, but my criticism isn't intended to be a blanket judgement.

    First of all, if I had the chance to own one, I'd probably be just a likely as anybody else to consider it.

    Second, if you have a valid reason to own and drive one, they are useful vehicles. For example, if you have a ton of stuff to haul around, or drive lots of kids around, it's a justifiable purchase.

    My beef is , and always has been, that the majority of the people that buy them do so for vanity reasons. They're well-known gas-guzzlers, and if you want a vehicle so you can have the biggest and best, you're buying it for the wrong reasons and knowingly eating up fuel resources unnecessarily without good cause. Same goes for if you buy it so you can be trendy and fit in with the crowd.

    I mean, I could find good reason to own one to haul my gear to gigs and such, but other than that I personally couldn't justify owning one. Especially to give myself some kind of status symbol. That's just shallow reasoning to do anything, particularly int his case when there is an effect on a resource supply.

    Just my two cents. I don't think SUV's themselves are bad, it's just the obvious reasons so many people have them for.
