    Why do people drive SUVs?

    Seriously, I'm baffled. Everywhere I look, I see people driving SUVs, but I really don't get the attraction. SUVs are big and top heavy, so they don't handle particularly well and parking them is a bitch. They get poor gas mileage and put out a correspondingly high quantity of emissions, so they're not especially green vehicles. They're expensive to buy, expensive to maintain, expensive to fill up, so they're hardly the vehicle of choice for the economically conscious. I understand why someone with a big family would value a minivan. I understand why someone like a building contractor who needs to haul heavy loads would value a truck. I understand why someone who is into outdoor activities and drives a lot over uneven, rough roads would value something like a Jeep. I understand why someone into sporty performance would value a sports car. All of these are reasons I can fathom for driving a big, unwieldy, expensive, fuel inefficient, high emission vehicle. As far as I can tell, though, a SUV offers none of these perks, only the disadvantages of a big gas guzzler. Yet they remain the most popular vehicle in the country. Can anyone explain this to me? Surely someone here must love SUVs and can tell me what the attraction is, no?
    What a self-important asshole...

    Oh, another reason. It's none of your fucking bidness what or why I drive anything.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Because they look different. Cars today look like they're all built on the same assembly line.

    Because they're available in 4wd, which is nice in snow and mud.

    Because they're taller than cars and you can see farther down the road.

    Because we can afford to drive them and, really, ours gets low 20's mpg which isn't bad. And I don't care about the mileage.

    Only if you are incompetent. I have a Blazer, which is a smaller type of SUV, but it handles just fine and I can park it with little problem -- even parallel parking.

    B-o-o-h-o-o. The planet will survive.

    They're expensive to buy, expensive to maintain, expensive to fill up, so they're hardly the vehicle of choice for the economically conscious.
    Better than having to get my ass towed out of the snowbank every time we get winter storms where I live. Towing is bloody expensive.

    I guess we could all buy Chevy Volts for 40 grand and drive 25 miles before it switches to gas.

    I'd rather by a new Escape for 20K and bank the difference. Or, if I wanted to spend 40K, I'd be driving a Ford Expedition 4wd.

    The future is windmill cars, the faster you drive the more electricity they make.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Given the liberal mindset, I think this is more in line with the future they want:
