The Highlander hasn't been tested by NHTSA yet, but it has been tested by IIHS. It did well, but some other SUV's did better.PrG said:I believe the current medium - large size SUV crach test winner is the Highlander for 2002 but I think it will change for 2003.
Nah. I don't mess around with safety aspects and think people should have all the information available to them. There are too many folks out there easily swayed by deceptive safety advertising and Internet claims on the relative safety of their vehicles. E.g. folks who take only positive safety comments out of context when their vehicles simply don't perform as well on crash tests. The easy question to ask them is, if their spouse and, say, a twelve-year-old child riding in the front passenger seat, is destined to be involved in a serious front-end collision, would they rather he/she be in the 5-star/Good vehicle, or the 3-star/Acceptable vehicle?PrG said:You must be a lawyer ....
That brought back a memory ... does anyone remember when Mercedes brought out their SUV and it failed miserably in the tests? If I recall correctly it flipped going around a corner.PrG said:I believe the current medium - large size SUV crach test winner is the Highlander for 2002 but I think it will change for 2003.
