Thanks! I was wondering because I saw the dummy go to the side or at least his hand did.

Conclusion drawn from reading the ratings: don't even attempt to swerve. Plow directly into the enemyother vehicle.

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee crash video

Looks like Chrysler/Jeep needs to extend the front side curtain airbags, improve the seat belt cincher system, and get rid of the damn foot operated parking brake pedal.

I was hoping to see a dab of paint on the foot operated parking brake pedal to see if the leg touched it, but alas, we'll never know.

I know first hand that the Jeep WJ seat belt cincher system works really, really well. My shoulder still hurts three years later because it took the brunt of the force when my Jeep went rolling down the middle of the freeway. That sucker tightened up instantly. I'm sure the WK2 is fine...or at least I surely hope it is.
