WANTS vs NEEDS

“Calling SUV buyers ‘soccer mums’ is a massive assumption”

Scott Muir, Townsville, Qld

Calling SUV buyers ‘misguided’ and ‘soccer mums’ is a massive assumption. You don’t know them. You have no right to criticise and judge them for their choice of vehicle.

Here’s an idea. Let’s get rid of the ‘wants’ when it comes to buying cars, and only allow purchases based on ‘needs’. Aston Martin, Bentley, Caterham, Ferrari, Isuzu, Jeep, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Lotus, McLaren, Morgan, Porsche, Rolls-Royce; all completely gone. Then you could wipe out at least a third of every remaining manufacturer’s fleet. I’d rather we remain a free country.

And no, I don’t own an SUV.
