Crash Test Videos

http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/c...htestvideo.htm


Pretty interesting. Noticed that both FX and Murano airbag isn't up to snuff as your head can hit the steering wheel during impact.

Don't panic

While they say it hits the steering wheel thru the aitbag they don't accompany the film with head or chest decellerometer data.

The head is well centered that means off of the center so as not to hit the center column.

My standard advice prevails.

Position your seat as far rearward as reasonable. Do not drive with your arms sharply bent at the elbows. I try and get the wheel as far away from me as possible. I like to sort of stright arm the steering wheel as much as possible. Position the seat back / seat base / pedals to accomidate this position. Keep your butt back in the seat don't slouch. Most impostantly keep from speeding particurarly in urban enviroments. On 3 lane freeways or any other road with 3 lanes drive in the middle lane.

As they used to say on the cop show. Be carefull it's dangerous out there.

what was the speed of the Murano?

Platinum 2007 Murano SL AWD.

When I called my salesman, I told him that I only care about 3 things.

1. AWD
2. Bose
3. Price

A 40 mpg Barrier

Is a very sever test equating to about 70mpg into a standing car. The car crushes and the Barrier does not. The NHTSA test had used 30 for a long time (somewhat do to industry pressure0 The 40 is a tough test and very real world simulating.

Yep, this test had a crash point that allowed for zero absorption of impact whereas the car took almost all of the intertial force. It's a pretty significant impact.

I was surprised that the shoulder belt did not hold the dummy back , Iwould have thought that the speed was fast enough to engage the ratchet on it.
