Ford Ranger Accident

The Ford Ranger 4x4 pickup was given the worst rating in the newly released government crash and rollover tests. NHTSA released crash test results for seven passenger cars, one pickup and one sport utility vehicle and rollover ratings for one crossover vehicle and 10 pickups. The agency chooses vehicles to test based on popularity and other factors.

The Ranger 4x4 and its corporate twin, the Mazda B-Series 4x4, earned two stars in the NHTSA's rollover ratings, the lowest of the 10 2005 pickups tested. NHTSA said the Ford Ranger and the Mazda B-Series have a 30.6 percent chance of rolling over in a crash. The ratings consider the vehicle's height and weight and its performance in a 35 to 50 mph test with a sharp turn.

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 "The calculation that NHTSA is using is based on a model that includes outdated information and is not capable of producing real-world results," she said.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...
