According to market research conducted by car manufacturers, SUV drivers are insecure, vain, self-centered, antisocial, and bad drivers.
“If you have a sport utility, you can have the smoked windows, put the children in the back and pretend you’re still single.”
—David Bostwick, Chrysler’s market research director

Unfortunately, SUVs kill five times as many non-SUV-driving people as normal cars do.
