Angry Car Talk column

I always enjoy reading "Car Talk" by Tom and Ray Magllozzi in our Sunday paper. Yesterday I believe they crossed the line, and it's time for all jeepers to let them know of their mistake. In response to a question from Alan concerning his 1996 Cherokee part of their answer is "Ray: So when you buy a cheap, barbaric vehicle like the Cherokee, you don't get all of the amenities you'd get if you bought something better."
"Tom: But your best bet might simply be to get another vehicle."
Alan's question concerned the lack of headrests on the rear seat. You can let Tom and Ray know how you feel about Jeeps at the Car Talk section of cars.com.
It's time to take a stand!!

2. "barbaric". Well, umm... YES! Because "barbaric" kicks *** and is not a weak soccermom-cherokeewannabe-suv!

3. If anyone is going to judge a vehicle based on wether or not it has headrests on the rear seat, and then tell that owner he is better off with a different vehicle, I would say screw him as his opinion is worthless.
