  • This bugs me too
    No one NEEDS a V8 unless you're pulling a trailer/boat/rv behind you all the time
    They figure they can afford it,so screw Mother Earth!

  • You should be asking why dont they drill for oil in America so we dont have to pay these crazy costs. Who cares what people drive.

  • what do mean by gas guzzlers? i know of some people who drive gas hogs because they cant afford a better milage car. while yes what they pay in gas could pay for a newer car, some people just dont have that kind of money available or they cant get loans. for some they have no choice and they need trasportation. im sure if more people could afford the upfront cost of a cheaper gas car they would get one

  • My truck gets 11 MPG city and 13 MPG highway. I love my truck and I would never trade it in. It seats all 5 of my children and my nephew comfortably. Now, my truck doesn't get driven much because we mostly walk.

  • I drive the safest vehicle I can afford because I want my daughter to be as safe as possible when she's in my car....if that means I'm driving around an Army tank, well...all I have to say to you is you better get out of the way because they have a crappy turn radius!

  • Because where I live in the winter the little death traps

    1. Would not run well if at all in the winter.

    2 someone needs to have a vehicle that can pull the idiots who try to drive one in a blizzard out of the ditch or pull them home when the battery drains in the bitter cold and they are stranded in the middle of BFE.
