I have to say I am not keen at all on Hummers or other monster SUVs. You may want to take driving lessons in handling extra-large cars; most of the Hummer drivers I see can barely handle that beast.

You'd also better make sure your budget can handle the amount of fuel those monsters consume.

If you've got a big bundle of money just burning a hole in your pocket and you want to spend it on a car, I'd really suggest a smaller, sexier, easier-to-handle sports car instead of a gas-guzzling, space-hogging, wannabe Sherman tank.

Have fun spending $200 on gas to fill it up.

I'm probably exaggerating a little, but at least $80 a tank with current prices is probably not out of line.

They're aggressively large and mean looking.

They carry a war vibe.

When I see one I assume the driver must be an asshole and the aggressively yellow one on my tail the other day did not help soften my viewpoint.

They get THIRTEEN MILES PER GALLON

Just say no.
