Seems to be the same excuse for still making the insane combined
turnsignal/brake that the big 3 still do on many models.
I always thought that to be mandatory in the US - that's one of
the things regularly to be changed if you (re-)import cars from
the US to Germany. And yes, it _is_ insane.
add a seatbelt restraint system (which the big 3 said would
the fact that cars were unsafe)
So, german cars are all unsafe. Seatbelts are mandatory here.
create a headlamp system that would turn in the direction that you
turning for improved vision ( a feature unused but comming out now
some 2005/2006 autos)
Citroen has done that on some models in the last 20 or 30 years.
and put the engine in the back of the vehicle for better
traction/handling (porsche/mazda/Lamborghini have all used that
engine model in their sportscars)
As have Saab, Fiat, Skoda, Original VW Bug, The original Mini, etc,
Huh? I'm driving a (somewhat aged, by now ;-) Saab 900i, which has
the engine in front. Same with the newer 9^3 and 9^5 models. Do
they have completely different Saabs over there?
