    I'm actually surprised to see the Titan on there. Didn't expect to see a full sized truck on the 'worst of' list.

    I believe the Audi A6 is good because not enough people actually own them.

    Maybe not in CA but they're all over the place out here. I can't begin to tell you how many I see on my daily commute.

    Mostly BMW and Benz here. If there are Audis they are A4s, S4s, R8s, and one or 2 RS4s. Rarely do I see A6s and A8s.

    Those lists are typically calculated per 100,000 miles driven - so normalized for however many or few are on the road.

    Surprised by the Titan.

    Used to be all 3 and 5 series BMW's here also but seeing a lot more A6's and a growing number of S4's also. I've only seen 1 R8 but you'd be crazy to take one of those in the city of Boston, the roads here pretty rough.

    This list does not have so much to do with the vehicles themselves as it does the typical or average driver of each type of vehicle, their driving style & habits, and perhaps their age and experience.

    Here's the actual IIHS release with all the vehicles: http://www.iihs.org/externaldata/srdata/docs/sr4605.pdf

    A lot interesting information can be drawn from this. For example, statistically you are about twice as likely to die in a 4x2 Taco as in a 4x4 one. The 4x2 Taco's rollover risk is actually higher, despite all the 5-lugger street trucks in the category.
