Rant: People Who Can't Handle Their Big SUV

Fri Jan 22, 2010 10:30 pm

Hi all!

Slowly I am getting sick and tired of people who are diving fat-ass cars but are actually too stupid to handle such a car.

Lately I see frequently that people block the traffic for up to two minutes because they are too friggin' stupid to fit their car into the parking space. People who need ages to park their cars do usually drive things like an Audi Q7, a BMW X5, a VW Touareg, etc.

Why the heck don't they just buy a VW Fox or something like that when they are too much of a moron to park their cars?

Anyone noticed the same? I guess American drivers are doing better since they are used to big cars but it is apparently too much for a lot of Germans.

My car has a 333 HP engine, so nobody of them can piss me off with their "Canyoneros".  Wink

Don't get me wrong, I am not anti-SUV here, I am just pissed by the morons who can't drive them!

A big agreement from me here. Honey wanted to spend 100.000 EUR for his wifey and bought her a Q7, but he didn't think so far to realize that such a car is too much for her. <- I guess that this is the most logical explanation on how so many women drive a luxury SUV.

I find it the worst problems with large SUVs in parking lots. Many are designed for moderate sized cars, not land barges with limited sight ranges and mass. Drivers have to manuver several times to get them into or out of a parking space when with a car they can go in and out in one turn. Then they open their doors dinging into your car door due to the space being too narrow and the doors being so huge. They you see that only the driver is in the car, going in for a quart of milk and some bread.

Nah ... the worst problems are the bozos who think 4WD means they can ignore the laws of physics on an icy road. They have no problem getting the thing up to a good speed, and then can't understand why they slide sideways into the ditch, or rear-end the guy in front who gets his car nicely stopped with 4 snow tires installed. The vast majority of cars in the ditch here during snow storms are SUVs.

Come to Vermont on weekends after/during a snowstorm and watch all the SUVs passing you on the road going uphill or downhill even though the road is all ice! Just because it has 4 wheel drive, does not mean anyone is immune to icy/snowy roads.

Over in this neck of the woods it's pure ego and showing off wallet thickness since few can afford the gas and insurance on those things. Combine the narrow roads in this country and even narrower parking spaces and you get a lot of idiots doing incredibly dumb things in vehicles they have no experience with. Sad really - just buy a fracking NSX or something.

Yes, that is very true. About 6 years ago, here in NJ, on the way home from an assignment at a client's office, I had to drive about 35 miles at a speed of 35 MPH or less due to signifcant snowstorm. Of about a dozen or more vehicle off the road, I think 9 of them were SUVs.

I once parked my car in at the shops one day, and no sooner had I stopped the engine than I heard the sound of a shopping trolley banging against my left mirror, with a woman pushing it. I yelled out a few obscenities, but being the good law student that I am  Wink I realise that if I had went any further I might've been charged with assault. I later saw that woman get into her car, and she drove a 200 Series Toyota LandCruiser ... I had to try very hard to restrain myself from committing criminal damage on her car.

I can't stand them, especially the women. Not only do they drive like complete asses they do not understan that if they merge improperly they will kill someone. Also, people here tend to "double park" whenever they want to go somewhere for shopping, even if there is a free spot 10m away, they'd rather do that than walk those 10m. It is always women that do that and they do not understand that their huge vehicle is blocking the road. And don't get me started on the people driving SUVs that fell they have the right to park ON pavements or cross pavements to go to the other side of the road just because they can....

One of my neighbors bought a large Chevy Suburban for his wife to use as the family carry all.
He had to get the biggest diesel engine available in it. I asked him why put in such a huge engine when all she does is go shopping and carting kids around? His response:

"When my wife is on the freeway tailgating somebody, I want her to have the biggest, most
intimidating car out there. That way she'll be safe". Idiot!

And as far as 4WD SUV's go, I think the auto salesmen have a part in this. I was once in a
Ford dealership and a couple was looking at a 4WD truck and the salesman was telling them "Hey, you can drive this baby on any type of surface, wet or dry and it won' skid at all!"

Or how about "I'm not worried about having an accident, I have airbags!"

It's easier to park at the back of the lot and walk in anyway... I drive an Avalanche.. I know how tight parking spaces are at most places... I just park at the back away from everyone and it's a win-win all around...

I mean really, we all can use a few extra steps in our day. I have a bigger pet peeve with people who spend forever circling the lot looking for a place up close when it's quicker, easier and healthier to just park at the back and walk in.
