    Just realize in this industry there is a lot of politics.
    Some journalist just out of school are suddenly experts in this field.

    You can crash any vehicle the way you want to.

    Some of the "safest" cars on the road, people have lost their lives in.

    Most manufactures are concerned about certain safety aspects of their products. Its good for business.

    What is not good is when a vehicle gets into slight skirmish the occupants die, this is bad for business.

    What research should investigate in say the Hardbody's case is how many died in this particular vehicle compared to others.....

    In saying all this, its just opinions.....

    "You can crash any vehicle the way you want to."

    But not so when doing proper testing as in this case.

    If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right. SJ

    Moral of the story, don't crash
    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.

    That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    The Navara tested in 2008 also got 0 stars where the Ranger and Triton got 2 and 4 respectively. (The Navara was upgraded and got 3 at a later stage but the same weakness of the chassis rail was there)

    Hardbody is almost double the weight of the yaris so the Yaris will need to absorb a lot more energy than the Hardbody.
