Oops! Only Honda did their homework!

The Honda Odyssey was the only minivan to earn the highest safety rating in new crash tests by the insurance industry.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says the Nissan Quest, Chrysler Town and Country, and Dodge Caravan all garnered the lowest rating on the small overlap front crash test. In each of those tests, the crash caused the minivan's structure to collapse. The Nissan Quest was called "one of the worst crash tests we've ever seen" by a lead executive at IIHS, according to CNBC. Test dummies riding in the Quest had to be pried out of the wreck with a crowbar.

And that's why I always have a crowbar in the trunk. :)

Nissan (as I wrote in the auto news thread) is having a great time in the spotlight since CR claimed their CVT's are troublesome. Well, maybe they have a great info system to offset the car being driven.

Ironic, and sad, that a vehicle that is manufactured for the primary reason of carrying around children safely, is inherently unsafe.

Yeah, kind of weird. If ONE line would be expected to ace these tests, you'd THINK it would be the minivans. Wrong answer. :fall:
