than that stupid mustang did...I just murdered a big ass Dodge off the same light as that *** in his mid 90s Mustang V6 a couple months ago. I was in the center lane sittin at the light and I seen him come over the little hill and swerve into the left lane, I knew what he was going to try to doso I said hell no... Light turned green and I slowly started...I was already passing him, haha, then I punched it. 3500 rpms hit and I was out of there. Shifted to second, and I could still see him in my drivers side rearview. When I let up he got in behind me, then swerved into the far right lane and punched it, I didn´t care cause I was already doin 20 over. I slowed down, smiled and went on my merry way ;-) Just add one new kill to make up for that Lumina Z34 that murdered me a couple weeks ago lol :-(

Well Durango Dick had it coming just by owning that disgusting monolith. Thanks for putting him in his place for us. Those freaks are too stupid to realize that everyone knows it takes a complete jackass with an overinflated ego to think of buying that big shiny 4WD phallic symbol. He thinks he looks macho? well if he were macho he would know it and would be confident in any car, like a Metro or something he would considers "girly". He uses way too much gas and pollutes way too much but doesn´t care. He thinks he can drie on top of all the other cars if the traffic gets too thick, like his scull. His center of gravity is too high. his bumper is too high to be safe to the Metro driver. When he finds out he has no better traction than that Metro, he´ll find out his stopping distance is 3 times as long.When the tow trucks goes out to pull that big box out of the ditchs, it´ll have extra long cables because they know it´ll be farther from the roadway than a car would be. He doesn´t care about any of that. He just thinks with his penis. Dodge took advantage of that.
Thank you so much for shutting him down. He probably told his friends he won that one. :p

A Durango is nothing like a Jeep. It´s big, heavy and mostly used by people who need to buy a minivan but can´t cope with themselves whenever they think of driving a minivan. If you see someone towing a trailer/boat and their family around with a Durango, you´re looking a very rare specimen of common sense. When you see someone driving a Durango with no trailer hitch to a soccer tournament, then you´re seeing the much more common ignoramous-gasgluttonous doesntknow****aboutstyleorsafetyian

If your jeep is a CJ*, Willys, etc, etc then you´ve got a great utility/offroad enthusiasts vehicle. If you´ve got a Cherokee, Grand Cherokee or Liberty then you´ve got what´s essentially a lifted unibody car that´s lighter and safer than most of the sport-utes out there.. congratulations. :-]

Supercars, like Lambos, Ferraris, Porsche GT2s etc, are also big penises in a sense cuz if you are rich enough for that then you only buy them to attract women. I would still get one, in fact I´d love to have something like that, and I like to think it´s for the pleasure of experiencing that thrill, but I think we would all be looking for who´s noticing us in it.

trannnies in those willy´s are a bitch, theres on sitting at my farm, that if me and my friend can get started get the shit rallied out of it. eh heh. Theres also 2 planes, a 1978 ford custom pickup, a suped up lawnmower. Some frickin like house with skis on the bottom and a big fan on the back, and no i am not making it up, lol. good times until you hit an oil road at 80 kmh and roll the truck. not sideways, but FORWARDS, it was crazy. O and yeah suv´s are retarded. If you wanna go offroading just buy a truck, and if you need to transport people get a van. I personally would mind owning my moms next van lol. its a brand new Pontiac Montana GT AWD in black of course, cause everyone knows that, that is the best colour.... hmm, my mom has a black van, my dad has a black truck, my grandpa has a black truck, and my grandma has a black oldsmobile... :-o its in my genes :-W

Actually I own a TJ. Cherokees are awesome vehicles as well (not the grands..).

My point was your saying what and idiot this person is and knows nothing about safety, is a waste of space for using all that gas etc. Did it accure to you that a lot of people that drive SUV know how to drive them? there are a lot of nicely built SUVs out there. basically anything with a US based name on it. RAV4, the honda one etc are just scary. look at the rear suspenion. a large fart and that thing would go to hell.

my point is...we who drive one of the worlds least loved cars (owners naturaly love them) should understand that you drive what you want and the hell with what others think. sure there are a lot of people doing it for the look. but there are a lot of people that buy compacts for the look these days too.

Hey now! my dad owns a 94 Grand Cherokee w/ 130,000 miles on it (work truck) and I don´t appreciate you...well... nevermind it is a piece of shit. it´s dying and making weird sounds from under the hood by the suspension. :-o That was a great Jeep until it hit 100,000 miles. Then shit started breaking and going wrong with it. We also have a 93 Dodge Caravan that´s getting probably 12 miles to the gallon, which is what I got yesterday when I filled my EGT up. But I did add in the gas that spilled out on the cement and whatnot so the mileage wasn´t quite that low I guess...I dunno.

I was saying Durango Dick is an idiot. I was going by how he was originally described. Of course there is a use for SUVs. I know people who have them because of need, usually towing a boat that a minivan can´t handle and fitting the kids in simultaneously. And I agree the little ones like the CRV you mentioned are a sick joke. But the sad fact is most are not taken offroad. WHY THE HELL DOES CADILLAC MAKE THEM? People who want Cadillacs won´t go off road. The answer is Cadillac wants more money. They have a big profit margin. Anyway, On my mornig commut, which is all freeway, I see alot of big SUVs with one person in them, they are obviosly used for commuting, which to me is wasteful. Some of these guys have suits on for crying out loud. Are we supposed to think he´s Crockadile Dundee? I just think it´s a little selfish to put your image ahead of whether our grandchildren have fuel and clean air.

Madbrad I respect your opinion on the durango guy and your views on SUVs. Partially, I agree with you. One person is usually driving in the big ass SUV on the freeway to work with a suit on. That makes no sense to me, either.
But when I got to thinking about it, the best MPG tank I had was about 3 months ago when I got a whopping 21 mpg. But lately I´ve only been getting maybe 15 mpg. Now, by your logic of 1 person driving around wasting gas, shouldn´t that apply to me? I´m basically driving an inline 4 banger gas guzzler. by my gas mileage I should be making 250 hp... So basically I´m screwing myself over twice by still driving my car. But, here´s the contradiction to your point of view, which applies to me AND peeps driving SUVs...I absolutely LOVE my car. I saw a guy today with an old Chevy pickup that was lowered, altezza taillamps, big ass 18" rims, he even had a little thing on his door handle that said "Dope Ride"... I´m sure that truck isn´t getting anywhere near 20 mpg. But he likes his ride.

Take your E-brake off next time you get in the car James ;-) Your mileage is bound to improve :-]

My main issue with truckbased SUVs is that their owners have a false sense of security in them.

They´re marketed as vault-like vehicles for family transportation, when in fact they´re some of the least crashworthy vehicles on the road. Weight is not a positive issue when it comes to crashworthyness.. crushspace is... and the more weight you have, the more crushspace you need. I´m talking about impacts with solid objects (trees, walls, posts, etc) where the front end of the vehicle is made to absorb the impact and leave the passenger compartment unscathed all while slowing the car at a steady rate.

A truck´s longitunal frame members are not designed for safety, they are designed for strength in towing and load carrying. They are not designed to fold in on themselves in a predictable manner absorbing crash energy like a car´s front frame member is. They transfer crash energy to the passenger compartment in a very abrupt manner and fold in on themselves in a random manner. Also, the SUV´s greater mass demands much more of the front end to keep the passenger cell unscathed during a collision.. and often times, the 4 foot front end cannot handle the strain of a 4500lb vehicle slamming against it abruptly at 35mph. This means that the floor and transmission tunnel are very prone to giving way as the large engine and transmission are pushed through them.. Kiss your legs goodbye and say hello to a wheelchair.

The only place the extra weight helps during a crash is if you´re in a collision with a much lighter vehicle (scorts for example). Not only does the SUV´s large mass endanger the lives of anyone in a lighter vehicle, but the additional (and often useless) extra height of the SUV´s frame means that the car and SUV will not begin their decelleration when the bumpers meet, but when the SUV´s bumper contacts the hood of the car. This render´s the car´s last defense (the aforementioned crush space) nearly useless.

You may have heard that such and such a SUV got a 5 star crash test rating.. well, that´s on the truck/SUV scale, not the car scale. Cars ARE much safer than SUVs when colliding with a solid object.

I´m not even going to get into rollovers, because any vehicle can be rolled. It´s indisputable that an SUV rolls over much more easily, but it´s still fairly unlikely.

This is why I can´t stand SUVs and single SUV commuters. They have opted to put their safety above everyone else´s with a small vehicle. Sure, if all SUV drivers put them down for minivans and cars then there would still be delivery trucks, pick-ups and semis.. but we´re talking statistics now... and SUVs throw the chances of me dying on the highway sky high.. much higher than needed. So if you´re driving an SUV that gets 10mpg while talking on your cellphone, putting on your makeup and yelling at your one kid in the back.. I HATE YOU and the statement that you make to me everyday: "My life is inferior to yours despite the fact that you´re ill-informed and a sorry driver :-| "

James you are the one who killed the Durango. I was propping you. I thought you hated him. I was just imagining what you saw in terms of the look on his face and his clothes etc. and judging him to be a stupid moron so I played up on that. It´s all tongue and cheek. I think your mileage should be better. I know I get better mileage than those big SUVs. It´s all relative, we should feel guilty burning gas in even very small quantities, like even in a Honda Insight or something. I love my car, I know exactly what you mean. I can´t see why anyone would love an SUV but they do and I´m not more right than them. I guess I can only love smaller sporty and hopefully efficient rides. It´s taste I know but to have that taste to want to go out in a big Excursion to work by yourself makes me wonder what they´re thinking. Irresponsible is a word that comes to mind but I´m just soapboxing and I don´t mean to be taken seriously except I thought this was the era of conservation. Again , Props to that fantastic kill and , everybody, it´s all good!! :-D

It´s all good madbrad. not putting you down or anything, but I like a good "arguement" and I love going against convention. That´s why i was thinking of ways to counter & yet still agree with your point of view.
I don´t really "hate" anyone. Not even people that choose to drive big SUVs. I dislike most "ricers" and people that decide to crack on my car, which they´ve never driven. All I want is props on my car and I Thank you a LOT for what you´ve said. again it´s all good and I´m not mad or anything at you for your opinion, if I came off like that then...OOPS :-] hehe
