    The next step may be to file an appeal with Pigmeat Markham, Sammy Davis Jr. & Flip Wilson sitting on the appellate court. I don't remember Pigmeat on Laugh In but I do remember the other two.

    Buck Owens used to drive me crazy, he was worse then having a group of twenty Mexican trumpet players stand near you at dinner demanding a ransom to go away, and my music tastes are very eclectic.

    Or we require all cars to have a manual transmission.

    Model 3 being named safest car ever and 11k more VIN's should move the stock up some today IMO.

    Great design for occupant safety!

    Unless I'm mistaken, it appears that a total of 24 model year 2018 vehicle models were chosen for crash testing under NHTSA's 5-star ratings program, which does exclude many other vehicles that could also offer high levels of safety. So, although the article is still accurate, I thought this additional information should be mentioned.

    They only test vehicles that have been updated.

    As noted in the title of the blog, you are correct this only includes vehicles tested.
    However, I am curious of your source of information. I went to Ratings | NHTSA and counted 51 vehicles tested from the 2018 model year. And even that doesn’t seem to be an exhaustive list, as it didn’t list the Tesla Model 3.
    I would assume NHTSA tests cars that are new, or redesigned in some way. So it would make sense that they don’t test a specific model in both ‘17 and ‘18 if there are no design changes.

    I apologize if I miscounted, but I was only including similar 4 or 5 door automobiles. Not pickups, vans, compact hatchbacks, etc. My intent was only to mention that the list of 2018 vehicles did not include every similar type of car available for purchase.

    No doubt the Tesla is obviously a very well designed vehicle for occupant safety.

    The cars not tested this year were tested when they came to market or underwent a design change. NHTSA's program that does the testing is the New Car Assessment Program(NCAP). Very low production runs may not require testing, but the federal safety testing is like the emission testing. Every car has to undergo it in order to be offered for sale.

    Iirc, when Honda's new / small-overlap test was presented to the world, it was only after their own huge failures like the one below;
    [​IMG]
    After years of safety experimentation / improvements, they sorta sprang on the world, this new type of overlap testing, & everyone else played catch up.
    Could have it wrong, but when this test came out, wasn't it also a sort of mid-cycle improvement?

    So Tesla is now down 3.3% today. This is after news that they now have the 3 safest cars in the world. And after registering 11k more VINs. I just don't understand this movement.

    The good Tesla news gets offset - set aside by the media & the shorter's depicting musk as the crazy guy who lost it.

    Remember how many sales of the various manufacturers' models are getting displaced, & it ought to make sense from that perspective.

    It's from end of business Friday. Markets react today.

    And if you are long on TSLA, you shouldn't worry.
