No one ever seems to think that their car could be one of the most dangerous car models to drive on the road. Cars that are slated with the lowest safety ratings are illegal to be driven in most countries, so where do manufacturers go to push sales of their stock? South Africa!
The Truth of the Matter Is…
Listed as one of the most dangerous cars to be driving on the road, the Datsun Go has a 0-safety rating on the Euro NCAP Tests. Yes, you read it correctly, ZERO. ZILCH. NADA!
Is the price of buying this car (+-R125 900) worth more than your life if you were to get in an accident?
Various groups have been trying to have the Datsun Go removed from production lines for quite some time now, but sadly manufacturers keep pushing insisting that this model remains on the road.
Interesting fact, the only other countries that allow the Datsun Go! on their roads are:
But Datsun Isn’t The Only One
Looking at Tata, specifically the Indica Model, it’s interesting to find that it too, has a fantastic score of ZERO out of 135. Again, a car that was at first, sold without airbags or in that fact, any life preserving features, such as ABS or EBD.
Cars of these standards are deemed unroadworthy in other countries. Why not here? It is shocking to see how unregulated our country’s industry is, with no major attempt to change this by anyone other than the AA. Consumers should be asking why.
