My son recently hydroplaned into the wall on I-95 doing 85-90 mph it was a 93 sonoma ext cab sle. It hit with enough force to shear the passenger side wheels off the truck, but my son walked away a little shaken but ok! I would have to say that the sonoma was as safe as anything else out there in this case anyway. BTW I had a topper on it he said it flew over the side and he never did find it. Lol!
