Euro NCAP investigated suspicious items
After the comprehensive 'dieselschandaal' seems to be a new scandal to light to have come into autoland. The institute of European crash tests took suspicious parts in the sweep up of the crashed wrecks.
In an interview with Auto Express explains lead researcher Matthew Avery, who works at security company Thatcham Research, in the course of time, remarkable components found in cars by Euro NCAP crashed. "We have vehicles found with parts that are 'only for Euro NCAP' or 'only for the crash test' was. This is what happened with different brands." The special marking was on airbagmodules and ISOFIX-kinderzitjesbevestigingen found. Euro NCAP confirms this to the British media. At the institute went on to say that all the alarm bells off to find the markers, but it turns out later to fall. Manufacturers had different explanations for the special marking on the parts. "Because the test sometimes for the start-up of production of the model is done, it may be necessary to certain safety components to identify to confirm that this is the latest and approved parts."
Avery adds: "I am sure that 99 out of 100 times with a legitimate reason. I don't think manufacturers our to the garden wanted to lead." So it seems that this 'airbagschandaal' with a damp squib is going to expire. At the last results achieved with the Audi A6 and Volkswagen Touareg the full score of five stars. The Ford Tourneo earned four stars, the brand new Suzuki Jimny three. The Volvo XC60 was last year as the most safe and tested car labeled.
