    I don't know about California and the laws concerning vehicles, but your vehicle is classed as a truck, since it has only three seats, same as single-cab pickups.

    The Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1968.

    Playing devil's advocate here (which my wife hates), but a Crew-Cab Pickup is still classified as a commercial vehicle in California. Darn that truck bed!

    So, where does the definition of a "commercial vehicle" end? Why is a pickup automatically classified as a commercial vehicle, even when it isn't? And why are passenger vehicles not, even when they are used for commercial purposes?

    It's only the basics that are considered, and one is how many occupants can sit in the car. And right off the bat, the car-based pickup and sedan delivery qualify as commercial vehicles. Then, once you get past that, the mud puddle cannot be seen into, because the car makers always keep it stirred.
