Sports Utility Vehicles Sustain Costly Damage
The Associated Press reported that an insurance industry study has shown that sports utility vehicles involved in low speed "fender benders" sustain damages that cost several thousand dollars to repair. Of the sports utility vehicles tested, the 1996 Isuzu Rodeo sustained the most expensive damage. In four 5 mph crash tests, it sustained about $8,000 worth of damage. The 1996 Toyota 4Runner, the Land Rover Discovery, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, and the Ford Explorer followed the Rodeo in the ranking of the highest price of repairs.
