    How do you feel about people with children who buy an SUV to avoid the stigma of buying a mini van?

    Funny, I was going to write a whole bit about the “SUV as mini-van alternative,” but the post was already too long.

    I’m on the fence on this. I respect the commitment of the mini-van owner – they’re not hiding anything. SUV’s are, at the end of the day, ludicrous unless you live in a snowy climate. And don’t mind paying $114.47 for a full tank of gas.

    That being said, at the end of the day most car purchases have some level of ludicrousness to them (did I really need a BMW? no – but I wanted one)

    I will fall behind the defense semantics on this issue. If you are buying an SUV to avoid the stigma of owning a mini0van, I say “man up” and get the minivan. If you buy an SUV because you like SUVs, then go for it! As long as you admit you care more about your image than you do about your kids…
