I have always stuck to the economy style car. After a horrible accident I had a few years ago I took a hiatis from driving all together. Finally, I felt it was time to overcome my fear and get back on the road again. Living in upstate New York as I do I was leary of what my next veichle would be, due to our horrific winters. Not planning on it I decided to test drive an SUV. I liked the thought of a big vehichle under little ol' me. Well, I fell in love with my Chevrolet Blazer! The vehicle is balanced so that it's weight is spread evenly through the center. It is four wheel drive and has excellent suspension. There is anti-lock breaks, and you can switch gears at the touch of a button. This was a great buy! I finally feel safe on the road thanks to my Chevy Blazer. Helpful hint... I found this vehicle on autotrader.com. I recommend this site and this style of vehicle.
Update On Mar 20, 2010: Although I was pulling out of a drive way and am therefore automatically at fault in NYstate, after the other speeding suv hit us we were still safe from any bodily harm due to a strong vehicular frame.
