Well, at, the OB gets 4 out of 5 stars across the board, while a VW Passat, for example, gets 5 stars. Even the Prius beats the OB in the side collision test.

I do think the thin metal is an attempt at weight savings. Sometimes it's more expensive to make something lighter than not. Of course, we don't have access to the engineering details so we'll never know.

I do think 4 stars is pretty good, when you consider the MPG ratings & vehicle size combo we get with this car.

But yes, if you want the best safety, you probably should go European (Volvo, Audi, VW).
