Only minor injuries from THAT?! Wow... glad to know our cars work... Looks like that one had side curtain airbags too. Makes me feel better... Just in case.

Cars are supposed to crumble. That's how they keep you safe...

Exactly. Which is more important, cheap to fix you or cheap to fix the car? I guarantee you, your insurance company would much rather fix/replace a car than fix you or compensate your heirs.

Having had someone close to me almost die in a traffic accident earlier this year, let me tell you, the importance of good, safe design of a car cannot be overstated.

Looks like the doors bent completely out. wow
It might be that they bent them out that way to get the driver and passenger out.

I'd much rather have a car crumple than have me crumple.

I hope I get a tC... my parents... are slowly starting to be.. more hesitant to help me get a loan now because they think i'm too "brave" when I drive because I asked if I could get my car before winterbreak so I have something to take to tahoe with my friends

Why would the tC become blacklisted? Why would any car get blacklisted unless it was a flaming deathtrap?
