Anyone who is turning this into a Subaru vs. other brands argument needs to SERIOUSLY consider how big of an ass they are. This guy is lucky to be alive and I am very glad he walked away with apparently no serious injury.
And in regards to car safety ratings, this car has a 5 star rating in almost every category. Of course it's not the only one in existence (no shit, thanks for the help genius). But to suggest that the safety of his car didn't have any significance in a 55 mph head on collision is beyond moronic.
