Better to keep the SUV, use it for its intended purpose (towing, moving large numbers of people and stuff, etc) and get a small beater for commuting.

We're a rich country, and having multiple vehicles for multiple uses makes a lot of sense and is financially doable.

Or maybe a Kawasaki Ninja 250! Nice!
In effect, spending thousands to save hundreds. It's the American way-- only think of the short term!
