Death Race: GM Finishes First, Last

According to a four-year study released by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, you are more likely to die in a two-door, two-wheel-drive Chevy Blazer than any other vehicle in the United States. We're not really surprised, as we remember our neighbor's 1986 Blazer wound up breaking its own windshield sitting still in the driveway. By way of contrast, you are least likely to die inside a Chevy Astro. Which also makes sense, given that 90% of them can no longer move faster than 52 mph. What does this study mean? Not very much, as it doesn't take driver personalty into account. However, the Acura RSX (a triple-hoon favorite) is the second most deadly and the Nissan 350Z (only a double-hooner) is third. Our conclusion? Either the Blazer has some super drift-potential that no one's talking about, or that is one dangerous Chevy.
