i've heard that the newer gmc and chevy trucks aren't doing too well on side impacts from other trucks because gm decided to reinforce the rocker panel more rather than the door. only reason they get a good side rating is because the iihs uses a lower bumper that hits the rocker panel.

The 3-series' cabin became structurally unstable during the frontal impact and the driver ran a risk of life-threatening chest injury. The distance by which the steering wheel was displaced backwards posed further risks of injury, while stiff aggressive structures in the lower facia area also added greatly to the chances of the driver sustaining serious knee, thigh and pelvis injuries. In the side-impact test, protection for the driver's abdomen failed to meet coming 1998 legislation for new models.
holy crap! and i actually kinda liked those montanas/trans sports. I've driven one quite a bit (picking up material at work for my foreman who has one) And I kinda liked the vans. It's amazing to see the difference between the transport vs the sienna!
