Crash Tests

Here's a 40 MPH crash test of my wife's car Nissan Murano/ Infinity FX35... notice the cab does not colapse - very safe car....

Same test... Here's my brother's Focus.... not bad either...

Now...Same test - here's a Chery from China... do note that...

1. The entire front cap folds like aluminum foil.
2. The cab does not stay intact and also folds.
3. The steeting colum pushes into the driver's face rusulting in....
4. The drivers face slams into the dashboard.

All of these result in a 99.9% chance of death for the driver. The dummy had to be removed in pieces and the door had to be pryed off - After a 40 MPH test the doors should still be stable enough to be opened by the driver.
