Two 4 stars and one 3 star? Isn't that out of 5 stars? Celica is safe but not safe enough for you to be drifting in the rain =].

Yes, that system used a 5 star rating system where 5 being the best and 1 being the worst.

well, first of all, we have to know wut safety means on cars...

for a car to be safe, they have to protect the passenger when they crash. a car that totalled during a crash doesnt nessesary mean that it is not safe.

the car that is all crumbled up during the crash means that the car can absorb energy from the crash and pass it through out the whole car, causing the least damage to the driver & passenger.

The Acura RSX did a bit better on the safety tests than the celica. I compaired them on that site, must be the SAB's...

very true, in fact if you get into a serious accident you WANT your car to destroy around you, and you to walk away.

Celicas are very safe, plus, the best part:

Handling to avoid the accident in the first place.


To have played and laughed with enthusiasm
and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.

What does it mean by seat too small? Does that mean whoever is in the backseat is done for if the car gets in a crash?

Preventivite maintence, just don't do anything that's going to get you into a position where you're going to crash. Safety first!
