Sitting 7 people inside an SUV

Hey guys, was wondering if there would be any damage to an SUV if 7 people (including driver) travelled in it, bearing in mind that the car does not have 3rd row seats.

Personal experience: Many years ago 7 of us squeezed into a Proton Wira, obviously the car bottom scrapped against humps but other than that it still seemed ok.

I have heard some people said that if the car always ferry full load, the shocks will be gone faster...

on the other hand, i see so many malaysian cars ferry > 5 persons in a normal non-SUV/MPV cars and they didnt complain.

Okay thanks, was worried that the suspension or axle would collapse under such loads.

It is dangerous to overload a car.Cannot brake on time and no safety belts.

Yeah, I understand. Try to minimise overloading the car and brake early.
