The Rush is an SUV model manufactured by Toyota, and has a capacity for five people, making it a smaller SUV than some of the other vehicles in its class. However, even though it is smaller than some other SUVs, it retains a considerable risk of rollover. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) generally rates the overall safety of such vehicles, to give potential consumers facts about safety risks for things like rollover accidents, but it has not rated the Toyota Rush. However, if you buy the Toyota Rush, and you are involved in a rollover accident because of some vehicular flaw, Toyota may owe you compensation.

What Increases Rollover Risk?
When designing and building a vehicle, its stability has to be taken solidly into account. There are a number of different flaws that could increase the risk of a rollover accident, and automakers must be alert to their presence so that they do not produce and sell a dangerous vehicle. The following may increase a vehicle’s rollover risk:
- Design errors bearing on weight distribution and center of gravity
- Manufacturing errors
- Prescribing improper tires or other replacement parts
- Faulty or malfunctioning parts
