There have been a lot of comments about SUVs on this blog as of late. Some of our readers don’t see why they exist. They don’t understand why some SUVs remain hot sellers despite $4 gas prices. Well, one of the hottest SUVs on the market right now is the $75,000 (or so) Lexus LX 570. It might not be selling in mass volumes, but sales were up 230% in June over the same period in 2007.
I spent a week with this smooth-riding utility vehicle and came away somewhat impressed/surprised, but there are quite a few flaws to be found in even the most expensive of SUVs.
