Re: Hopefully the UK will follow this
> Actually the ford Mustang shipped to NZ has 2 star crash ratings because the murderous the c*nts at ford decided to save a few bucks (and because such cars can still allowed here after successful lobbying by car importers and shameful back down by the govt).
That didn't sound right, so I looked up the details.
You wrote it as if the "Ford Mustang shipped to NZ" was different from the car sold elsewhere. It isn't. They didn't omit any parts, or cheapen the structure.
The two star rating was in 2017 with a newly established rating system. The same car with a different branding (as a Falcon) got a four star rating when introduced under the 2013 version of the tests. Like almost every recently designed car, it probably would have gotten a 5 star rating with older tests.
The Mustang increased to a 3 star rating in 2018, so saying "has" is somewhere between misleading and wrong.
I'm not defending Ford here. Their older design seems to have not considered the safety of the (token?) rear seat. But your claim is neither correct nor supports your point.
