People on this forum need to take a step back and really re-think their position, in life. I bring up a concern and the entire time I go out of my way to say it’s simply a concern that we need more data on... Yet there are people here who immediately go to an extreme to.The point is the actual cabin intrusion and forces applied to the test dummies are vastly more important than whether any particular part bends. None of this can be reliably derived from the videos.
As an example (XC90):
Vehicles are designed to function as a system and focusing on a single part may or may not be indicative of the overall results. The Dodge Ram shows no A pillar deformation but has problems with cabin intrusion and forces applied to the test dummies in even the moderate overlap test.
Too soon to draw conclusions about occupant safety until the actual test data is released, but if a non-deforming A pillar is a "must have", you'll likely need to move on to another vehicle.
1. Insist that Rivian is perfect (how they arrive at this conclusion without the very data I say I need, I do not know).
2. Insist anyone who says otherwise needs to move on to another vehicle.
Well golly gee, I’m sorry that I care about safety and that has offended you. I’d tell you how I really felt about your opinion, but that would be rude. You can have your opinion, but please just leave me alone with mine.
