Well, in the hypothetical situation where it was that or not have an SLS, I dunno, I would hope the person in question might understand. :) But yeah, I see where you're coming from there.

I can believe that. We used to have one here, and it had a few things to recommend it - the seats were remarkably comfortable, for instance, and the driving position was commanding, though you paid for it with the ten-minute climb up to the bridge - but it had quite shocking blind spots in the rear quarters because of those flying buttresses and despite its air of vast solidity, I always suspected that if I ever really rammed it into something, that wouldn't end well. I've had several full-size pickups over the years (and a number of truly boatlike automobiles), and somehow the Avalanche, despite being essentially more of the same, always seemed more awkward to maneuver.
