Natalie sez:

she thinks that the larger the car, the safer it will be.
That is a typical American attitude, often expressed, in the past, about smaller imports. I would rather have a more manueverable car to avoid an accident than a tank (or an SUV, roughly the same thing to me) that will survive a heavy impact.

Crash test results do show that bigger may be okay, but not always better. Some of the bigger vehicles like SUVs can roll-over--never a good thing in an accident.

As I understand it, a lot of big truck and SUVs are now bought by women both because of bigger=safer and bigger offers a larger personal space for personal safety.
