Lol. No i just don't care for go karts that will be crushed to dust if i get bumped by some douche in a hummer. Also when i saw it on the lot i was in love and it hardly had any miles on it despite being 8 years old. Grannymobiles ftw. Whitewalls are sexy.Originally Posted by Harrekin:7478341

it does amuse me how you guys bring the big engines and trucks upon yourselves then bitch about it being your governments fault. where is this personal responsibility you guys harp on about so much?
for the record i have an 18 yearold 1.3l VW golf that i picked up for £400 with less than 40k on the clock
i don't know where you live, but here i have snow in the winter, and i also need to tow things great distances from time to time, and my 3.8l engine is still in a sedan, NOT a truck. it's very easy to tout the safety of tiny cars when you are sharing the road with other tiny cars. the other day i learned what a lorry (sp?) is and i literally thought, "how cute!"
it's also easy to say americans should be driving smaller cars when you come from a country where cars have ALWAYS been smaller. you don't just go from a buick le sabre to a vw bug overnight. it's absurd to expect as much. the fact is that this fuel thing is brand new to america, and it's not in our culture to rave about cars with LESS horsepower. it's like trying to sell bbq beef in india. it just doesn't work.
also, many of the countries to whom we are being compared have almost no distance to haul people and goods. america is a very spread out place, and we don't have near the public transportation system as most of europe. you all have taxes to DISCOURAGE driving, and we have lower taxes to ENCOURAGE it. that's where the "government intervention" comes in. in america, driving=freedom.

LOL @ its unreasonable for americans to think about smaller cars
LOL @ america being only place where people need to travel
LMFAO @ america being the place for driving freedom
