atleast ur not an idiot like me with a not so bright friend spotting.
i was on a steep driveway, caught the end of em....and while letting off the brakes, they slid out from under me (in a tbird).....its a horrible feeling when your car just FALLS....goodthing it was all plastic.
....and i had to jack it up with the smallest jack in the world.....geezus.

LOL......reminds me of my g/f's Civic. I had to find a very low floor jack because the car was too low to go up on ramps. LOL

LOL....they don't make new cars very easy to pull on ramps. My wifes Eclipse is the same way. I bought some of those plastic ramps, it barely goes up those, rubs just a tad.

Its amazing what you have to do to change oil and do basic tune up-s on these small things.. my little brothers civic just -barely- gets up on ramps... Im used to my own truck, sometimes I like to drive it into the ramp to give me those extra 6" of headroom under the axle I wouldnt ever trust crawling under a little car, even if its on those ramps.. its jsut spooky

I have the SVT suspension on my Focus and I need to grab the front wheel lip and lift the car a bit. The suspension holds it and I can slide my jack under it.

I just use the creaper to go under the ranger. Very nice to change oil.
My 83 F250. Once I crawled under it i could uncomfortably sit up under it.

I rarly use ramps.
