Default Beware the Chinese

The Chinese cars, that is.

The Brilliance BS6, which is now coming to Europe, was recently crash tested by Germany's ADAC, for the Euro-NCAP programme. It barely received one star...

Last year, the SUV known as the Landwind was also crash tested, as the first Chinese car introduced to the European market. This car, which is a license copy of the Isuzu Amigo or Opel Frontera, is literally a death trap.

looking at the pic again, i think the sunroof is a big part of it's lack of structural safety.

I was thinking of that myself, but I doubt that a solid roof would keep the steering wheel from crushing the driver's forehead
