Wow... it's so true...

But with gas as high as it is, I can't believe SUVs are still as popular as they are...

As for me... I'm getting a new Toyota ECHO soon... 41 m.p.g.

Can you haul 6 children (my 3 plus a friend each) and groceries in a Toyota ECHO?

No the ECHO probably cant do that. But if you are carting around 6 kids then you need a school bus not a SUV.

Nope... the ECHO only has 4 passenger seats... so you could get yourself and your 3 children in it, and put the groceries in the trunk... tell your children that they don't need any friends...

Of course, if you didn't have the groceries, you could put the 3 other children in the trunk... unless they were older teenagers... then they would be too big and you could only fit 1 or 2 in the trunk, and tie the rest to the roof...

Sorry... I wasn't criticizing those that drove larger cars because they need them... I was just wondering why SUVs are so popular now ( even among single people ) even with the high price of gas... You would think that people who didn't need that size of car would want to get something that wasn't so expensive to keep gas in...

Noone NEEDS as SUV. All sorts of people want one or like them, but noone needs them. If you have alot of kids then buy a minivan. Smaller and better on gas. SUV's are just a fashion statement. I laugh when i see soccer moms driving them.They look like they are piloting a naval cruiser(which means they think they can drive as they please). I love watching them have trouble pulling into or out of a parking space. This one time a lady i saw had to backup over 15 times just to maneuver that boat into the spot. Makes my day.
