Parents want to buy sister an SUV

My sister is getting her license soon and long story short.... she is not a good driver. She wants an suv. Parents want to get her an suv. They argue that it's safer (big=safe, winter). My argument is that it's not safer (rolling etc) and that she'll cause much more damage if she wrecks than if she had a car. Obviously I think it's a huge waste of gas as well and their comeback is that she'll just drive to town and back. But even that will be a good gallon of gas a day since she usually goes back and forth twice.

Does anyone have links to any sort of anecdotal evidence or reports? Personal stories? Input?
