RE: SUV thread (sorry) was Re: Audi S4 or $4

It's because most of them ride so badly that even a speed bump or low
driveway curb make them crash, bump, thump and rock'n'roll so badly that
their inhabitants might get sick all over the leather interior and their
nice business suits.

What's with the stupid SUV drivers (and pickup truck drivers for that
matter)  that slow down to an absolute crawl to go over little 3 or 4
inch high speed bumps? I used to take the same bumps at a reasonable
parking lot speed in a lowered Rabbit. All of my Audi's have no problems
with these bumps at all of course. <MAC
