What car not to drive...
On Australian TV last Wednesday Serious Crash Unit was on and the car in question, which had been crashed by teenagers, was a Mitsubishi Capella!

If someone offered me a drive in one of those, I'd walk!

Re: What car not to drive...
...why?

Personally, I would rather avoid any car in a crash, but it's not like that's an option in most cases... but some cars are *much* worse than other. Was there a specific reason this car would be worse in car crashes?

Considering it's a Mitsubishi, it can't at least be worse than Jiangling Landwind. Zero marks in Euro NCAP. Just look at the steering wheel and what it does to the dummy. Then imagine your own head and neck there. Not a place to be in a crash. It's sold in Europe and the only thing why it's legal is that it's apparently classified as a van instead of normal car, which have much stricter safety classifications.

...And that's a whopping 64 km/h frontal crash (40 mph) there. :shaking:

So... that's a car I would definitely avoid. But I would also pass a drive regardless of the car if some people I know were offering it.

...and I agree with Turey. This has nothing to do with General Freespace. If the name of the car doesn't count. :rolleyes:

Sorry about that. I thought because Capella = Freespace 2. Go ahead and move it before Swantz faints.

It's Freespace related(if somewhat tentatively), that's why it stayed. If stuff appears that isn't relevant, we'll carry on moving it as we always have done :)

Sorry. The part about Capella went completely over my head. In light of it, this is the right place for it.
