Montgomery Media recently posted their top 10 most embarrassing vehicles according to kids. They are not in any order, but here is how Montgomery lists them:
10) Honda Element
9) Minivans – any minivan
8) Chevy Suburban
7) F-150, Dodge Ram, or Silverado Pickup
6) Chevy Malibu
5) Pontiac Aztec
4) Saturn – all models
3) Honda Insight
2) Ford Crown Victoria
1) School Bus
This seems like an okay list, but did you see that Silverado/F150 and Suburban made the list? Really? Have you ever heard a kid say that their dad’s truck is embarrasing? Have you ever heard a kid not want to be seen with a Suburban hauling a boat or motorcycle? Marinate on those questions and then think about some vehicles missing from the list: Smart Car, Chrysler station wagon, RAV4, or the Hyundai Accent. Trucks and big SUV’s should not be on this list…period. Here’s the link to the full article: http://www.montgomerynews.com/articles/2011/12/07/auto/doc4edf7d1769f22545731482.txt?viewmode=default
SoCal SAYS: Everyone knows that trucks are cool and so are most SUV’s. Maybe not Datsun’s or Mazda trucks, but even those are still better than a station wagon. I mean really, would a kid rather roll-out of school in his dad’s Silverado or in his mom’s brown wagon? This list needs to be revised ASAP.
GMC plans to release a truck in late 2012 that can run on compressed natural gas or unleaded gasoline. It will only be available to fleet buyers or commercial buyers, but we bet they will get to the regular consumer by 2013. Ford also offers this type of truck, as seen in our article earlier this month. Compressed natural gas can be purchased for around $0.80-$2.00 a gallon depending on the state you live in.
SoCal SAYS: It’s great to see the two largest truck makers offering a clean, fuel efficient solution. The biggest complaint from lifted truck owners is how much they pay in gas. With this new model, you could see your gas bill drop significantly and know that you are burning cleaner fuel. The best of both worlds!
