One last point, for every person who buys a larger vehicle just to feel safer, you just made the little guy less safe. I found your statement to be very interesting. They are true for me, but not how you mean. Let me explain... Years ago, I decided to go to graduate school to get my MBA. I didn't want to, but I had to. I found myself competing for jobs with other people who had MBAs. I had to get one because they had one. The same is true here. While its true that I enjoy all the benefits to driving our SUVs, the true reason to buy them was because a high percentage in my town drive SUVs, vans, or pick-ups. We bought ours to protect ourselves in the event of a crash with one of these other large vehicles (it was the right decision as shown in the above linked thread). The bottom line is that I'm not in charge of how safe the 'little guy' is. I am, however, in charge of the safety (and comfort) of my family. Edited July 27, 2004 by sbell111 Quote Link to comment
