My tank kept me safe

2006 Ford Expedition XLT Sport 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
I am on my second Expedition (first was a 2000 with 144,000 miles on it) and couldn't be happier with it. I was recently in an accident in it. I was going 60 in the slow lane of a 4 lane freeway in San Diego. I hydroplaned in the rain and lost control spinning from the slow lane and hit the center divide going 60 mph. I walked away with whiplash and my car has $13,654 in damages HOWEVER there is NO structural damage whatsoever. The bulk of the expenses is body work, paint, and I really did a number on the front suspension. Anyways, I am so glad my car kept me safe and is so structurally sound that it was not totaled. Now I have to wait about 4 weeks to get it back.
Message Center, automatic headlights, flat fold seats, roomy interior, and obviously safety.
Gas mileage is a given but I knew what I was getting myself into. The positives outweigh the negatives by far.
