I have never owned one and do not particularly want to.

They use a lot of petroil, are so big, and for me, totally unnecessary. I think an ordinary mid size sedan has just as much room for children, luggage etc, so I really cannot see why so many people buy them.

They often are bad drivers also and think they own the road.....no, unless you go into the bush I cannot understand why these are so popular and there are so many around.

Oh! Finy, your 2nd para re space is incorrect.
We carried the two kids, large portable fridge, huge willow picnic basket with camping cooking gear, two stock saddles with their accompanying tack, two kit bags with our clothes, & fishing gear, in the back of our SWB.

Try fitting ALL of that in the back, & boot of a mid sized sedan car!

I've never driven a car of any type,and have no interest at all to do so. I'd be a poor driver at the best of times as I just have no confidence in this area!!! So No!! I would NOT like to own an SVU
Perhaps you mean a SUV, Jules? Like you, I don't drive, but my husband is looking to buy another car, slighter bigger than our 25 year old car we drive now, as he'd like to be slightly higher up in it, & it would have a rear view mirror, which I think are wonderful, so 1 doesn't have to turn around so much, when their trying to park!

yes i drive/own one oh a lot better than my small kia shuma that i used to drive.
No I have never owned one but...I hve driven on and didn't like it, too big!

I have never had one and I have never driven one. I prefer small cars - I don't feel comfortable driving a big car. But if someone else was to drive me around I would happily be the passenger of a SUV

I find parking the most difficult part of driving and I think in a monster like this I would really struggle..... but then a lot of people driving them don't seem able to park them properly, given the number I've seen badly parked, blocking extra spaces etc etc.... so perhaps I shouldn't let it put me off!
No we haven't had one and I've never driven one but we like to travel and if we came into money I'd dash out and buy 4WD a dual cab Toyota Hilux with a hard to canopy.
Yes. Toyota SWB FJ40. 'Australian Travelling Brown' is its' official colour/paint job! Bought it 1976. Hasn't done 200000 Klms yet. Only has gone to NP's, through NSW, SA, Qld & to the dump!
Had it converted, seat wise for kids in back. Recaro passenger seat for me. Additional fuel tank means 800klms without refuelling, plus 3 jerry cans' worth chained to back.
Fabulously reliable vehicle. Pulled camper/trailer for many years'. Has cast iron engine. Have been told never to sell it!
I have my little red rav 4 which has 4wd and a bull bar. I am strangely very emotionaly attached to this car. It makes me happy to drive it especially when I am doing a bit of bush bashing on the weekends. Nothing hard core like massive hill climbs or rocky creek crossings, just easy dirt tracks. Yeah, I love my baby suv.



Well, we are hoping to buy a slightly bigger car in the next 5 days, or the next 12 months. He'd like a diesel. Our car is about 25 years old, & he's like it to have a mirror to show him how to park. He'd also like us to drive it to Melbourne with our daughters items they left before when they moved out, years ago! But of cause I don't know if it's an SUV or not, that he's interested in buying! I just got a little carried away here!
