interesting- wonder why they didn't combine both models of the Chevy Aveo, instead of listing it twice (#3 & #10)

i think part of the problem is that these are cheep cars and you can't buy much safety with cheap.

the other part of the problem is the buyers that drive such cars dont know how to drive.

Good catch. Don't know... probably was bad enough that it was worth mentioning twice. :-)

Just thought it was refreshing to note that the Fit wasn't on the list inasmuch as Fit Freaks here post their accidents and crashes... Also interesting I thought was that the Smart Car was not on the list. Maybe not enough on the road to mention.

smart car is built very tough actually...so is the Fit.

check out some of the chinese brand china domestic market car crash tests on youtube. it's unbelievable how safety is at the bottom of their list.

Guess I was a bit surprised to see the Yaris on the list. Another reason I'm glad I chose the Fit.
