    Well, if your huyundai can't do any of that, then it's useless. Except as an item of ridicule, as Goobie pointed out.

    OK, let me repphrase:

    You dont drive until after the plows go thru.

    As I said - your claim is a farce. The source of your pride and your ability to drive in the winter is not based on the ability of you or your car - especially as it relates to largeer 4WD vehicles - but on the efficacy of your Department of Transportation.

    As such, your claim as it relates to those 4WD vehicles mean nothing. You might as well claim that you dont need a big 4WD because you get along fine on dry pavement.

    Now stop making yourself look silly.

    Right,



    driving a two wheel drive around in 6 inche of snow, is not the safest thing to do....

    yeah, but we're talking about a super-duper, treehuggin', Canadian two wheel drive, here. That's different.

    I live in Wisconsin and we get plenty of snow. I have had 4 wheel drive vehicles since 1979. I notice that whenever we have a storm most of the vehicles in the ditch are 4 wheel drive. I would attribute it to over confidence and the fact that 4x4s are no better on slippery roads at highway speeds than 2 wheel drive.

    Re: GM to shut down Hummer

    Hummers are simply a luxury item like any other expensive vehicle. Admittedly its not a very functional vehicle, but people didn't buy them for functional purposes, they bought them for aesthetic reasons. Status, etc....And I am neither upset with the shutting down of the Hummer line, nor am I thrilled about it. People should be able to buy whatever kind of car they want, so long as they can afford it, without ridicule from those who think they know better how we should live. So Hummer didn't make it, big deal. Something else will come along when the economy recovers and the caterwauling can begin again.

    Well they certainly were not selling:

    When gas prices topped $4 per gallon in 2008, the company said it would close four pickup and sport utility vehicle factories, shed 8,350 jobs and sell its Hummer brand

    But I'm sure in your bizzaro spin world this is some kind of coincidence to blame on democrats or what ever.
