Are SUVs more dangerous than cars?

thanks for answering


I need a fuel sipping car that is only a year or two old. I'm on a budget. What kind should I get?

NO, they are not.

HGV Drivers - Do you enjoy your job?

Most have thick, strong frames and reinforced panels to protect against collision damage to passengers.
They sit a bit higher than the average car so they offer a better view of what's on the road.
They CAN be made to rollover if swerved sharply at high speed but so can a smaller car. It is a foolish move no matter what vehicle you are driving.

I just failed my driving testttttttttttt?

In the event of a rollover, the SUV is not likely to sustain serious damage because the roof is reinforced. If ALL the occupants are wearing their seat belts properly, they should have only minor bruises.

Is there any grey market importers in canada for spykers and other cars of that ilk?

I own a Jeep Liberty with the diesel engine. At 60mph it delivers 28-30 MPG. Unfortunately the diesel is not being offered in the Liberty for 2007 but there IS one in the Grand Cherokee. It is listed at 22mpg highway using the 2008 "real world" EPA figures. I suspect the accuracy of that low number because it lists my Liberty at a mere 24 mpg highway. I get that with a combination of city/highway.

How do you set a limited slip differential (LSD) unit to make a car easier to drift?

It depends what type, because if it has a short wheel base, they are more likely to tip and easier to roll if you take corners to sharp too fast.

Help!! Will they refuse to pay me out??

They have a higher risk of flipping when they make sharp turns compared to normal coupes, sedans and sports cars. If you don't know how to drive a large vehicle you are more prone to accidents, by incorrectly judging the amount of space you have as well. SUV's are also intense gas guzzlers which is more dangerous to our enviornment if you want to think about the green aspect of your question. If you have a family of more than 5- rock on with the SUV, otherwise, I'd definitely think twice about the purchase-

What is your favorite classic car and what car do you least like and why??

Yes but I still drive one b/c I think it's safe being in a big SUV than a tiny compact car. Plus I feel so claustrophobic.

How do I get details of car owner using registration, I was robbed by driver?

I would rather be in a SUV than in one of those rice rockets if we were heading straight for each other in the same lane.

What shape would a Chevy S-10 with...?

They do have the higher center of gravity, but driven with any kind of reasonable amount of care, there should not be a problem. You almost have to go way out of your way to flip one. The problem earlier with the SUVs were that people wanted the high clearance and they let the air pressure get low in the tires, now a lot of them have tire pressure monitoring equipment on them. In 2009, or there abouts, it will become a requirement to have the monitoring equipment as standard.

Universal rims? What does that mean?

Along with all the bad things the previous answers have said, they are considered commercial vehicles so they dont have to meet the same rollover requirements as a car. You can guarantee the roof will collapse in on you 99% of the time. Not good in a vehicle already prone to rollovers.
