M-Class Ban

I'd just like to know how to get M-class mini-vans and other so called high-end SUV's <font color=red>banned</font color=red> from any and all claims to off-road ability. I don't mean to be a dick, but I've seen the suspension used on the M-class and it couldn't handle real off-road conditions. The only thing they're good for off-road is a good laugh.

My truck ain't leaking oil it's marking it's territory!

Re: M-Class Ban

banned as in not allowed, illegal ect. I'm tired of seeing these spotless SUV's with chrome grill guards. I think it should be illegal to talk about your trucks off-road performance unless you actually take it off-road.

<font face="Comic Sans MS">I think rather than banning them, that we should instead get a law passed that if the poseurs go bragging about their vehicle and someone challenges them, the bragger would be required to prove their claims at whatever off road area the challenger picks...

That would be far more fun than just banning them...</font>

Yeah Sandman, now that I think about it, your way is a lot better. Also, how do you change fonts?

Re: M-Class Ban

I think we should just call them by thier true name: Sport Utility Car. If it don't have a transfer-case, low-range or at least a solid rear axle, then it is in fact a S.U.C. So go on up to that soccor mom in the parking lot of the grocery store and tell her she has a nice SUC!!!! hehehe

<font face="Comic Sans MS">Let's still call it an S.U.C. but let's change it to say Stupid Useless Car... </font>

400K5 I have a good use for these things, there good to see how well a real 4X4 pulls out a mini van that got stuck.
Sandman how about calling them YUK's Yuppy Utilite Kars.

Take care of the pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves.
