El Feo said:Is the $60,000 Lexus any less objectionable by this standard than any SUV? I think it's more so - nobody really needs a luxury sedan. On the other hand, one could argue that they need towing capacity and cargo room on a regular enough basis that it's justifiable, even if they're not used on a daily basis.

Huston said:No, but I just don’t have the same opinion (and that’s what it is) about luxury cars. I like luxury cars, maybe one day I will own one like dear ole dad, but I just see luxury SUVs as silly. Plus, plus a Lexus gets pretty good gas mileage, relatively speaking.
If you tow or haul cargo then it is justified, but most people don’t.
El Feo said:but if you can afford the gas for the luxury car, I'm not gonna preach that you shouldn't have it.
Runner said:OK, I will.
Just because you have the money does not mean it's OK to pollute the planet, keep our military in the middle east, and make the urban experience less pleasant for everyone outside of your little "It's all about me" world.
Runner said:Now that's ridiculous!
Madison Avenue you are so good at what you do!
gkmo62u said:I can only assume from your perspective that means two utterly silly options:
1) The Government would all own the vehicles which would be just one more control it has on your life or;
2) Some collective would own them, like the workers collective or the Greens

Runner said:Obviously this non-native Texan would define a level playing field as one that requires registration fees according to a schedule based on:
- Fuel Consumption
Low registration fees, lax emission requirements, and tax rebates for behemoth SUVs are all nonsense.
Chet said:As an SUV driver I would supprt that once the federal income tax codes are amended to repeal the incentives to own. Until then, why add a disincentive to an incentive?
mendelman said:Might be off topic, but I think anyone can get the same utility froma good old station wagon. It's a shame that the SUV and their crossover offspring have almost effectively killed the full size station wagon.
