Once again, I don't get how so many people can justify buying vehicles that are so inefficient. I mean, I can see it with a big family or a trailer to tow, but otherwise most SUV's just seem pointless. Honestly though, you don't need one just to commute with. They may be safer in an accident with a similar size or smaller vehicle, but most of them don't handle as well as a smaller car which can often avoid an accident due to superior dynamics.
