You love it or you hate it :D
I recently drove one, a V8 Supercharged with full HiFi system on-board on little roads through the country... Damned! Great experience anyway ;)

They've just taken a Range Rover and made it even less of an offroader but a still a big, thirsty monster for people who think they're too good for a normal road car. So you took this car through the country? That probably puts you in a minority, while you were doing that most of these things were sitting outside school gates or in shopping centre car parks.

I agree with you. But your comment does not change anything to the feeling I had while having some fun behind the wheel of this strange powerful machine.

That's the thing though, if somebody let me bomb around offroad in a Hummer, I'd probably quite enjoy it, but when I see them being used as runarounds I wish for bad things to happen to the owner. It's just the whole consumer attitude towards the SUV and they way they are marketed, there are adverts now that actually acknowledge the fact the average buyer doesn't go offroad, there's this tongue-in-cheek advert for the Fiat Sedici presenting it as a family SUV for picking up your kids on a rainy day (it's the advert where the baby pees on his dad's face as he lifts him into the air, I'd like to pee on the face of the people who conceived the advert) "Everyday Life is an Adventure" was the slogan. There used to be a time when people had trouble referring to a Land Rover, even the Discovery, as a car, because it was so big and rugged compared to an ordinary car and it was less comfortable to drive, it was a more specialized vehicle that people tended to buy if they needed to do offroading, towing or rougher work. Now it's OK to buy one as if it were just a normal family car for everyday road use.

well you have to think about SUV as slightly bigger wagons and not as Off-Roads ;)

My point is since the average consumer doesn't need an offroader (which is more complex with it's 4 wheel drive, uses up more petrol, takes up more space, causes much injury to pedestrians and people in smaller cars if it hits them) they shouldn't buy them. An estate car/station wagon is just a car that has extended interior space instead of a boot/trunk, all it adds to the sedan is a few inches in length and a few kilos, it doesn't block out your view if you're behind it or completely flatten you if it hits you.

SUV's ARE TAKING OVER! These Range Rover Sports are everywhere in Greenwich, CT. They are more stylish than most SUV's (although the Cayenne and X5 are just as nice). SUV's give a false sense of security and obstruct the view of others. Yes, they can be useful - if you have to have one. But a BMW station wagon is so much cooler, rarer, friendlier, and just as spacious (usually). I find it funny how many SUV drivers have accidents in bad weather - they figure they turn and brake as fast as they can accelerate.

I would much rather have a BMW 5 Series over an X5, likewise a Merc E-Class over an ML, Volvo V70/S80 over an XC90, Lexus GS over an RX, Audi A6 over a Q7 and so on, because it be better to drive, be easier on the eye and I wouldn't look like a complete tosser driving one, unless I drove like a tosser.

G-Mann, what's a tosser? Apparently it's a British term I'm not familiar with. I must say, I enjoy British terms and humor. Your car shows for instance are the best-ever! Fifth Gear and Top Gear are far superior to any US show I've seen.

Ha ha ha, a tosser is, as you'd say, a jerkoff. We British have some lovely little cursewords, but the Americans also have some wonderfully useful words as well.
