IIHS names Chevrolet Blazer most likely to kill

http://www.blogsmithmedia.com/www.autoblog.com/media/2007/04/blazer_450.jpg

The Chevrolet Blazer (not to be confused with the Trailblazer) continues to statistically be the most deadly vehicle on the road. Looking at statistics from 2002 through 2005, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found that drivers of two-door, 2WD Chevy Blazers built from 2001 to 2004 had 232 drive deaths per million registered vehicles. The average number of deaths in the same time period was 79 deaths per million.

In General Motors' defense, spokesman Alan Adler said this in the Associated Press article, "The study doesn't really take into account driver behavior or how the vehicles are used so it's difficult to really draw much significance." Which, coincidentally, is pretty much exactly what he said in 2005, when the Blazer was first named the deadliest vehicle on the road.

Guys, keep in mind that this is regardless of the car wearing Firestones tires or not, and BTW the Explorer, or any Ford for that matter, didn't make the top ten list.
