How big of an issue is car safety for you? I was looking up a new car I was interested in and saw it had a 5-Star safety rating, and actually got annoyed, thinking how that little fact probably added 2 g's to its pricepoint. I mean, are their certain models that you would just REFUSE to get into because of safety concerns? Cars are safe-ish. That's good enough for me. "Oh, well, if you're driving 85 MPH down a mountain in a monsoon and get struck from a 65 degree angle by a freight train, only this model will make sure you're safe." I'll take my chances. Keep the cupholder air bag, and give me back my 2 g's.
