watch the steering shaft and the wheel. It doesn't bend at all and the steering shaft pulls the whole dash with it.

Its got flex though

You can tell how crappy the frame is on the side view behind the driverside rear wheel. THe frame looks as if its only 2" high.

I agree with there point of the airbags being useless, especially since the steering wheel would snap your neck.

This SUV reminds me of some Chinese tools that I have seen - They look like a copy of a real tool, but when you actually try to use the tool you find out that the tolerances/material hardness/surface roughness/etc. make the "tool" completely worthless. It looks like a tool, but doesn't work like the tool it was copied from.

That looks like an SUV, but doesn't work like an SUV.

However, I have to add that the recent Chinese tools are getting better. I'm sure that the SUVs will get better too, unless all of there future customers die in crashes with the current generation.
