    Default Toyota Tundra's second 4-star

    PickupTruck.com
    http://www.pickuptruck.com/html/news/tundranhtsa.html

    Once may be a fluke but twice starts a pattern.

    NHTSA has completed a second round of crash testing with the 2007
    Toyota Tundra, and has scored the Crew Max version
    http://www.safercar.gov/NCAP/Cars/4178.html with the same four star
    driver and passenger safety ratings the Regular Cab received back in
    March http://www.safercar.gov/NCAP/Cars/4177.html

    A score of five stars is the best a vehicle can achieve in NHTSA
    testing. The 2007 Chevrolet Silverado, 2007 Dodge Ram, and 2007 Ford F-
    150 each earned five stars for driver and passenger safety in their
    NHTSA tests. Toyota's competitors are already using the original crash
    test results to emphasize the safety of their pickups over the Tundra.

    This disappointing news for Toyota comes only a few weeks after the
    Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Tundra its
    highest crash test rating...

    I'd say this is pretty much meaningless to the vast majority of truck
    buyers.

    Now that I've driven the big Dodge, I consider the Toyota a wanna be truck.
    YMMV.

    Not really. The majority in a class do get a 4 star. The vehicles that
    don't are the exception.

    Bingo!! He and Nomen Nescio if they aren't the same person ought to be. They
    post this stuff all the time, usually to a wider number of groups.

    THis may be true but then i sometime question the value of this tests
    becayse how many people run into barriers with their cars in wrecks?
    Granted it does provide data in a fixed crash senerio but in the real
    world there are a lot of varibles in a crash and hw the energy is
    spent went it hits a "soft" object that can crush too. Insurance
    companies are kinda the finail authority on this in that they know
    first hand how the vehicle perform in a crash and the costs related to
    it be them vehicle repair or medical and those determine the insurance
    company ratings more than a crash into a test barrier.The test barrier
    crash is a good start on getting crash data but not the final word.

    Actually the 2007 Tundra was the only full size 2007 Pick-up that did
    not get 5 stars - so it is the exception.
