It's a shame about how car companies build cars around features rather than safety. Safety should be number one, and I think that's what these reviews are trying to tell car companies. If you're on a budget looking for a new $10,000-19,000 car, that car should be as safe as a safe $90,000 luxury car.
But I guess having more featuers (like with Kia) or larger production output (like with Ford) is more important than safety.
There's really no excuse for an unsafe $40,000 car, though
