I do not treat my SUV like a car. Most mature adults with minimal experience know that SUVs are not cars, and IMHO most adult SUV drivers are responsible. There are a minority of bad drivers in every population (don't use seat belts/dui/reckless/speed/immature, etc.). In my own experience most of the people who cut me off in traffic are cars and pickups, not SUVs, not 18-wheelers, not buses. I think it's partly because of the sheer volume of cars and the mistaken assumption by these car drivers that the SUVs they cut off can stop on a dime if they cut them off. I find it incredible, but some posters on an Edmunds message board joked about cutting off SUVs (because they dislike them) and doing "brake checks". What's up with THAT nonsense?... When I eventually replace my SUV, I'll look at the #1 Ford Explorer; in spite of the tire debacle, a lot of people seem to like them.
