NHTSA Crash Tests

New Pickup Crash Test Results on SaferCar.gov

The Twins did very well in my opinion. Notice that is without the Side Airbag! So I'd like to see a test results of the side Air Bag. My guess is that it would make all 5 stars.

GM missed a chance to blow the competition away by offering the side airbag as standard equipment. Had it been standard, it would have been the only truck tested with side airbags.

That's great! I have the side airbags...I think it was a good idea to get them...they weren't too expensive.

In my humble opinion, the is no reason to not get the side airbags. They are not expensive at all when you think about what they do.

I was planning on possibly chopping into the roof and adding a power sunroof. They better not interfere is all I can say. That, and I want to shave off the antenna and build one into the headliner.

If the (stupid) air bags interfere, they're gone. I'm very close to disconnecting all six of them as it is. Safety isn't my first priority; driving something the way I want it is my first priority.

Example: Sunroof, integrated antenna, steering wheel tilted "downward", towards my chest instead of at my face to avoid chest/arm injury. I like to rest my arm on the wheel when I drive and not worry about an air bag burning it up.

If I become to the point where I severely mentally handicapped, or on life support, my guardians (parents) know that I don't want to do that, and to just pull the plug. So, I can't have an argument towards me that "you could become brain dead" because if that happens, I won't live long in that state. If I become paralyzed, I'll figure something out to take care of me. I'm not too concerned as long as I buckle up. These safety belts seem to work great. I'm brawny enough for the force of the restraint to not harm me (much) I'm sure.

Air bags save lives and to call them 'stupid' is child like. We all know children don't like to wear their set belts; however, as adults we understand the need for them. How long is driving a vehicle you like gonna last? A few years down the road you're gonna be driving a truck that's got every mod in the world and you'll still get tired of it. Having things that make you happy is not worth your life.
Luke 16:15 Jesus says: "You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of men, but God knows your hearts. What is highly valued among men is detestable in God's sight."
It can change in a split second. Driving along at 50mph someone coming in the other direction slows to turn and the folowing car doesn't stop and rear-ends the turning vehicle sending that truck into oncoming traffic. That oncoming traffic was me. He died instantly and I nearly did. Body temp on scene was 50 degrees. I managed to get away with two shattered legs, two broken ankles, a broken arm, a broken heel and unconcious for several days. Sorry, this kinda things just get to me now. I apologize.



btw, I got the side airbags :)

That Blazer Looks like it seen the Jaws of Life.

Sometimes it is amazing what you can survive!

I gotta wonder how long you were there before they found you that you were that cold. That part doesn't sound right.

Did your blazer have any Air Bags?

I'm sorry, I guess that should read 50 degrees celcius, so that would make it like 70 something? I just remember that was the temp on the hospital records. Yes, they did use the Jaws of Life and it had front airbags. These positive crash test results are good considering how bad the Blazer was. http://www.hwysafety.org/vehicle_rat...html/96002.htm

That makes sense, the Metric thing. I've used the Jaws on many cars/trucks, I could see the Marck on the Quarter behind the door.

My guess is Side Airbags would have lessended your head and chest injuries.

The leg injuries are typical of that type crash and I hate trying to free someone from leg entrapment in some cars.

This is a disturbing statement. My truck is nice and safe. Cool modifications don't make up for safety. You can't "get some" with a pimped out ride when your found dead inside. Even Nascar drivers and other motorsports crews and drivers think safety first. Bungee jumpers measure twice, skydivers check and recheck there equipment. being fast or cool is not worth being dead.

Not sure if this has been posted yet but the Colorado was tested by the IIHS and put up near-phenomenal ratings. The IIHS tests are absolute worst case scenario, and these ratings are damn impressive.

As many of you know, who have these side airbags. But they can help your insurance significantly. You dont even need to tell them you have, if your truck is insured, they know from the VIN.

Side Air Bag is a must.
I have them in all my vehicles.
I don't care about the vehicle, LIFE COME FIRST!!!

Plus I have GAP insurance.

I'm very please with my CANYON.
GM should bost their ratings.

I noticed in the vehicle list that a lot of vehicles have a NT "not tested" and the twins are ????
