Yeah, this is what disappoints me the most. I always thought you paid a premium for Euro marks because they were better engineered and safer cars.
It is disappointing to see that once one new aspect of testing was introduced that so many cars with a reputation for safety performed so poorly.
It does seem to suggest that car-makers' primary goal is to make their cars pass tests (safety & fuel consumption) and that performance in the real-world is of secondary importance. What a shame
