G35 unsafe!!!

The list of unsafe cars points to two trends. First, the least-safe cars are cheap. However, some luxury cars have subpar crash-test scores. The Jaguar X-Type sedan from Ford Motor and the Infiniti G35 and M model lines from Nissan Motor received one "poor" rating each, which was alarming but not enough to merit placement on our list

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

I am not surprised at the Jag X-Type's performance seeming as it is built off the humble Ford Mondeo platform.

Garage List
The E90 got 5 stars in the Euro NCAP? Right?

Anyone know what it got in the US NCAP?
