SUV's Rule, Cars Kill You

I wonder what all those tree hugging hippies are going to have a stroke now ...

New small SUVs received high enough marks in the latest round of insurance industry crash tests that testers recommend them over small cars for buyers looking for more fuel-efficient rides.

And OMG, look who ranks up their with the japanese ...

Among eight new models tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, four earned the "top safety pick" award -- the Ford Escape (that includes the Merc Mariner and Hybrids), Volkswagen Tiguan, Nissan Rogue and Mitsubishi Outlander -- for highest grades in front, side and rear crashes. (emphasis mine)

Take that you freaking hippies.

The safety factor (and four kids) is why we have had an SUV. Now that the kids are starting to drive on their own, I want a smaller vehicle for myself, but still don't want to give up safety. I like the way the Ford Escape is sounding. And making hippies stroke out? Even better.
