More proof positive, John . . . even if you can afford a $75k Vehicle doesn't mean you have 50 cents worth of COMMON SENSE.

From what the reporter mentioned, the Escalade starts out at $55,000, but I wouldn't be too surprised if he added a lot of options and ended up paying $75K for it.

He probably should have included the "Common Sense" option when he bought the SUV..

Or maybe he thought the float option was included when he bought it.

Oh well, he'll probably be looking at a more economical SUV now, that gets significantly better gas mileage.. which brings up a thought, I wonder if he did that intentionally because he couldn't afford gasoline fillups anymore!
