A car is only as safe, as it is properly maintained. So even if size basically matters in case of a crash, the Mirage is the loser, but lots of trucks I see look like you could touch through the rust, especially at the rear ends of old Dodge Rams and Dakotas. So they aren't any safer than your Mirage, but any light weight car has a size disadvantage on the roads, so the idea is to fear not, and be proactive and drive alert all the time. Drive almost like "aggressive" for lack of better term. Know what's going on with other drivers all the time.
