A friend of mine was on the freeway here in the Phoenix area when the hitch on the 4x4 pickup in front of him fell off, and he couldn't avoid running over it. He had a new Scrion xA. Did $4000 damage to the front of the engine and chassis.

depends, we dont close the bed on our truck because of wind resistance most of the time, we close it only if we are carrying stuff around
