And tires. I just got my reminder from the NHTSA to check my tire pressure, since for some reason van tires get neglected more than any other vehicle. 74% of 12 and 15 passenger vans had severely mis-inflated tires (by at least 25%) in the recent NHSTA study. This compares to 39% for all cars.
But yeah. Throw a driver in a 10,000 pound vehicle, who has never driven anything with more than 5 seats before and doesn't understand that more weight changes handling characteristics, and bad things will happen
