I'd like to see like a hummer h2, a Sequoia, an expedition, escalade, or other Large SUV's hit a smart fourtwo, or something similar. Very curious about the results, I've always questioned an SUV's safety. I mean a NEW suv's safety. One that uses technology from the same fleet that the smaller cars use. One crash test I wanna see is my moms caliber up against something very large. They're supposed to have 5 star crash ratings all around and standard side-curtain airbags and such, and I'd like to see one in action since I ride around in it a lot. I'd also like to see what mine would do... probably worse because from the crashes Ive seen the ZJ just doesn't crush and absorb much, it mostly folds in at the firewall, causing a bent look to it.

Yea.. I drive a Jeep and I'm on a fuel economy site, but you just wouldn't understand... "It's a Jeep thing!" *Jeep Wave*
