The CAFE standards that make the car companies manufacture these POS's have killed thousands of people every year. The accidents that would be survivable in a large car are fatalities in the little ones.

I think its funny how the Honda guy says that the test is not relivant due to its severity. WTF does he think is driving around on the roads?? This isn't Europe.

It amazes me to see people driving these things on the interstate where the limit is 65mph.

My father inlaw had a head on with a 2002 toyota corolla he was driving a 1978 f100

The corolla totally destroyed the f100

Imagine what that crash would be like if there was 2 Mercedes
