yea I gotta go with shake'n'bake on that one.

more than half of them had "highs" of "good off-road ability" says something about what they're testing them for I think.

When hell freezes over, we'll ride there too.

thats a horrible list. Jeeps and FJ's are built for off road how is that NOT a consideration if you're going to label them as 4 of the 11 worst cars!?!

The other other white meat.

My sister just bought a 4-Door jeep and she loves it and she lives in LA so


but as for some of the bad points they are bad but I don't think that makes them the worst vehicles out there..

I didn't know that SUV's were considered cars. If you're going to be buying a vehicle for it's "off road ability" then I don't think you're really looking for an economical vehicle. Those two things almost never go hand in hand.

I'd contend that an SUV is a light truck.

Most SUVs on the market today aren't really made to be a real SUV, they're more like an oversized car...

and the few that ARE made to be an SUV just got torn apart 'cause they're not a good car.
