its on now...he just blasted the design of the battery tray, and how you have to go through extremes...love that, dont love how he called it a piece of crap though
wow, the facias dont really stand up well to jet blasts....note to self: don't park behind jets
they forget that US taxis are almost all full-size cars, where in South America, the taxis are as small as Dodge shadows, and they flip easier

Recall it!!! Fuel rails and bumpers can't stand up to jet engine exhaust. Talk about bad engineering.

Wonder if the real jets would have pushed it over?

not sure, it would be pretty tough, but im sure some cheap lawyer who has an Intrepid will be filing a lawsuit based on a "test" that shows the car doesn't stand up to 400 MPH winds

I didn't like how they tried to rig the test. They actually jacked up one side and let air out of the tires on the other. Still, the car didn't roll. Brings back memories of that truck test some network did where they t-boned a pickup truck and had purposely made a fire start to show how "bad" the design was.
