You are quite right! For whatever reason Americans have a stupid desire to drive outrageously large vehicles. Because we are so spread out we are stuck with the need for vehicles but very few people really need those massive off road vehicles that never get further off road than the driveway. The Car companies are not entirely to blame, they were just making what we were buying. I also expect that whatever American companies survive will be making much higher quality, more efficient vehicles shortly.
If it can't be broken I'll find a way!


I'm not lost, I'm exploring!
