You know, someone should make a similar quiz to determine if you need a car at all. It would ask for
the distance to work, distance to nearest train/bus stop, frequency of longer trips, etc., and tell
you how much you save by switching to a bike. And how many calories you'd burn each day.

The topic is to determine if you need an SUV. I believe it is illogical and sometimes dangerous to
equate want=need. If you want one and don't care if you need one, then the quiz is not appropriate.

The quiz is not appropriate in either condition, if you are in a situation where you need a 4wd
vehicle (notice I didn't say SUV) and, if you have to rely on a silly quiz to determine if you need
it, you probably don't have the mental capacity to use it. A large number of SUV's aren't any more
capable of off road use and bad traction sitiations than a normal front wheel drive automobile.
