But of course you're invulnerable in your Buick Limited.
These IQs seem no more of a death trap than a Topolino Fiat or a hundred
other small cars, and they're not a vehicle of choice to go 80 on the
freeway.
It looks like a great shopping car, not for 75 mile commutes.

"Compact city car". Hmmmm... something tells me that's a vehicle marketed
for city, around-town driving, not directed toward a freeway/long-haul
market.

It's perfectly safe if you follow the directions in the owner's manual
and fill the interior up to the headliner with lemon Jello (Do not
use deadly strawberry Jello; regular strawberry Jello OK)..

Not to long ago, I saw 3 SUV's in one wreck. All survivors were sent to the
hospital by air-ambulance.

any that didn't survive, to your knowledge? If they were SUV's I'll wager
at least one of them was on a cellphone. I seldom see an SUV without the
driver yakking on the cell....even when parking in a supermarket lot. What
the hell can they have to say that's so important?

I-5 through Los Angeles will see plenty of these cars if they ever make it
here.

Los Angeles is spread out over a very large area, and people here think it
is entirely normal to drive 30 or 40 miles to get to work, they see this as
"city driving." I've seen people drive faster in the Costco parking lot than
the average speed on the I-5 at certain times of the day. Having said that,
the first micro-mini-ultra-compact that gets crushed by an SUV will simply
draw more attention to the bad traits of SUVs.

I believe someone died. They had emergency blankets and sheets up around a
certain area.

Also a great college town car... and great urban car... and maybe even a
great second car for suburban families...
