Earlier, someone mentioned this should put the bigger vehicle being safer question to rest. I disagree. It only resolves whether the old TANKS of yesteryear really were safer or not. No, they aren't and I never considered them to be. Then again, if my Neon were in that crash instead of the Malibu, I MIGHT fare better than the 59's driver...
as a fellow neon owner I'd have to say Doubt it! although the 2nd gen is slightly better off than the 1st gen that I used to own. I would NOT want to get hit in either!!!

2nd gen
1st gen
