Sport Utility Vehicles, commonly known as SUVs, are known to roll over more easily than other cars. A higher center of gravity makes this more likely. Designers do what they can to make rollovers less likely, and good engineering and advanced technology help make the decision less likely.

While the SUV is seen as the domain of the soccer mom, it is clearly designed to be a family vehicle. It can easily fit car seats, and it contains anti-lock brakes, backup and blind spot features, seat belts, crumple zones, and many other standard safety features.

Rollovers are specific to SUVs and the Jeep, which used to be vehicle type of its own. It became folded into the SUV category when other manufacturers decided to imitate the former American Motors Company product. Why get a vehicle that is more likely to roll over? Buy the Dodge Journey and avoid the issue entirely. Your family will be pleased.
