These are IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety). IIHS tests vehicles that are sold in the US to their specific standards and gives them a ranking for safety. Because their purpose is to improve/demonstrate vehicle safety to the consumer they choose to evaluate vehicles that sell in larger volumes to guide

Legitimate question. How well does that trailer do with longer dimensional lumber? I’ve been thinking of something similar for my hatchback.

This is fairly troubling. In general a PPAP (production part approval process) cannot be marked complete for vehicles that are not built on 100% production tooling and assembly processes. If parts are being hand fit to vehicles and put in the hands of customers as sale ready cars it’s toeing the line of safety

If you keep your eye out you can occasionally find a Volvo C70 of either gen in your price range.

So after the federal tax credit it costs $1,500 more than the Volt? Which offers more than double the range and doesn’t look like....that thing?

Surprisingly, when I picked up my MR2 it fit nicely with the engine forward of the rear axle on the uhaul trailer. It towed pretty well, I was a bit nervous with it being the first time towing anything over 1000lbs (and a rental truck and trailer with my new-to-me car)

That wouldn’t surprise me. Most manufacturers can get 3 proper barrier tests out of a vehicle. (Even NHTSA does this to an extent)

He’s right about one thing. They are certainly capable of going toe to toe with Tesla on quality.

Airbags are a supplemental restraint system (SRS). They work with the seatbelt, not instead of it.

I cannot stress enough, be SUPER careful with deburring tools. Always be mindful of where your hands are located especially in harder materials like steel and brass. The knives on them are generally carbide or a very hard coated steel and they can break. One of these bad boys gave me 5 stitches one morning at work.

Yes so if you're reversing that and calculating miles per gallon where gallon is on the bottom (miles/gallons) you would multiply by imperial gallons over us gallons 7.5*7.5/9.007=6.25
