Ford Focus | Lawsuits, Lawyers | Accidents: Injury, Deaths | NHTSA, Failed Crash Test, Lowest Rating, Vehicle

The Ford Two-Door Focus was given the worst rating in the newly released government crash and rollover tests. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said the rear passenger was at risk of serious injury when the Focus was hit in the side in a 38.5 mph test.

The NHTSA gave the Focus three out of five stars for driver's side protection and four out of five stars for rear passenger protection, the lowest ratings among cars tested. Those ratings didn't reflect the potential for head injury because NHTSA's side-impact ratings consider only chest injuries. A five-star rating means the likelihood of serious injury in a similar crash is 5 percent or less; three stars means the likelihood is 11 percent to 20 percent.

Ford spokeswoman Carolyn Brown said Ford plans to study the new data but believes the Focus is safe and perform similarly to comparable vehicles. Brown added that Ford thinks NHTSA is using faulty methods to predict chance of rollover. "The calculation that NHTSA is using is based on a model that includes outdated information and is not capable of producing real-world results," she said.

The Focus was tested without side air bags, which a Ford Motor Co. Web site lists as a $350 option on the vehicle. NHTSA gave the Focus three out of five...
