...Vehicles that look like they should be 4WD but are FWD,
All new "Crossover SUVs", especially the FWD ones
Subaru claiming to have made the first Sport Utility Wagon,
and the worst:
FWD Jeeps

That is kind of silly, but yet it does make sense.
Since most SUV'* or crossovers will never go "off road, you really don't need 4 wheel drive.
As far as winters, I have had plenty of front wheel drives that got around just fine.
The Jeep thing, though, yeah, that is just weird.

That little Jeep Compass is not much of a Jeep.

There is only 1 new Jeep I like, the SRT8 Grand Cherokee. Anybody here have one?

I like the Grand Cherokees. But I can't stand the Liberty cause every person on my street owns one. One family owns four of them.

Not a mopar fan, but I guess the SRT-8 is pretty cool. DC shot themselves in the foot when they decided to call the slightly-curved-head V8 a Hemi. Jyah right.

What Peter said. At the Nats in 2002, there were literally dozens of people telling the DC reps "Stop calling it a Hemi, coz it ain't."

BTW I drove a FWD CJ5 once. It had a locker in the transfer case, so when the rear U-joint broke....lets just say that it wasn't much trouble getting it back to the road, but driving home was an exercise in sheer TERROR.
