My senior dogs use the steps to get in and out of my Terrain, mostly the getting part as they usually don't seem to have a problem just jumping out. And I can see a couple of nicks on the underside of the steps, so they probably saved some rocks or something from hitting the rocker panels. Other than that, yeah they're pretty useless.
I was thinking about saying that they may be useful for small children, but then realized that someone that small probably wouldn't be stepping into the vehicle anyway. Straight to the car seat/booster seat for them.
