Toyota Camry gets slammed in new crash test

"America's most popular car fared poorly in a new crash test from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The auto safety group, which is financed by the insurance industry, recently tested a group of new family sedans, including the Camry, Honda Accord and Ford Fusion.

The cars, 18 different models in all, were subjected to a new type of front crash test in which a car, going at 40 miles an hour, strikes a crash barrier with just a small part of the front bumper on the driver's side. It's a tough test, since it concentrates impact forces into a small area. When the IIHS put a group of luxury cars through the same test in August, only two cars out of 11 got top marks."

    My Ford doesn't do that.
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    Tater will like this. And more proof to me that Toyota has lost its touch. Late 80s and 90s were the best they were...all downhill beginning early 2000s.
