Thread Name: BS: SUV Tax Break?
Subject: RE: BS: SUV Tax Break?
As I understand it, these beasts are classified as trucks, not cars. Trucks are usually used in business, so the Hummer is a truck, and a business vehicle. Have congress change the classification and the tax break goes out the window.
How often do you see these "Urban Assault Vehicles" belly up in the ditch? people get the idea they are so safe and sure footed, when nothing could be further from the truth.Their high center of gravity makes them top heavy. Sure, they will go where a car can't, but they will not stop any quicker, and they will not steer on ice any better than a used Escort.
