Likelihood of neck injury? Is this guy on drugs? More like likelihood or being severely paralyzed or even severely dead.

wow, thats horrible.

i've heard that the newer gmc and chevy trucks aren't doing too well on side impacts from other trucks because gm decided to reinforce the rocker panel more rather than the door. only reason they get a good side rating is because the iihs uses a lower bumper that hits the rocker panel.

^wow, that's good to know. Isn't that just product misrepresentation? Should and could they not be sued or fined for something like that? It has ridiculous written all over it.

I was shocked to find out how bad the E36 was. The E46 is very good, but the E36 is really bad.

http://www.euroncap.com/tests/bmw_3_series_1997/15.aspx

2/10 rating. eeehhhh


Quote:
The 3-series' cabin became structurally unstable during the frontal impact and the driver ran a risk of life-threatening chest injury. The distance by which the steering wheel was displaced backwards posed further risks of injury, while stiff aggressive structures in the lower facia area also added greatly to the chances of the driver sustaining serious knee, thigh and pelvis injuries. In the side-impact test, protection for the driver's abdomen failed to meet coming 1998 legislation for new models.

where does it show the crash rating for this car?

all it shows is a car crashing into a brick wall at a unknown speed..... and the narator tells us a low crash rating... but of what? compared to what?

what does any other minivan look like slaming a wall at the same speed in the same position lol. i bet equally bad.

It's called standardized Testing.

Eurocap Tests:

Frontal impact
Frontal impact1 test is based on that developed by European Enhanced Vehicle-safety Committee as basis for legislation, but impact speed has been increased by 8 km/h.

Frontal impact takes place at 64kph (40mph), car strikes deformable barrier that is offset.
I was wrong in the ratings.... (read it wrong)

For the E36, 1.5 out of 5 Stars
For the E46, 4 out of 5 Stars
For the E90, 5 out of 5 Stars

98 Civc got 2.5 out of 5 Stars

holy crap! and i actually kinda liked those montanas/trans sports. I've driven one quite a bit (picking up material at work for my foreman who has one) And I kinda liked the vans. It's amazing to see the difference between the transport vs the sienna!

Found the Eurocap E36 Crash Test.



The E46 did much better, as expected.
