Toyota Tundra's second 4-star

PickupTruck.com http://www.pickuptruck.com/html/news/tundranhtsa.html
Once may be a fluke but twice starts a pattern.
NHTSA has completed a second round of crash testing with the 2007
Toyota Tundra, and has scored the Crew Max version http://www.safercar.gov/NCAP/Cars/4178.html with the same four star driver and passenger safety ratings the Regular Cab received back in March http://www.safercar.gov/NCAP/Cars/4177.html
A score of five stars is the best a vehicle can achieve in NHTSA testing. The 2007 Chevrolet Silverado, 2007 Dodge Ram, and 2007 Ford F- 150 each earned five stars for driver and passenger safety in their NHTSA tests. Toyota's competitors are already using the original crash test results to emphasize the safety of their pickups over the Tundra.
This disappointing news for Toyota comes only a few weeks after the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Tundra its highest crash test rating...

I'd say this is pretty much meaningless to the vast majority of truck buyers.

THis may be true but then i sometime question the value of this tests becayse how many people run into barriers with their cars in wrecks? Granted it does provide data in a fixed crash senerio but in the real world there are a lot of varibles in a crash and hw the energy is spent went it hits a "soft" object that can crush too. Insurance companies are kinda the finail authority on this in that they know first hand how the vehicle perform in a crash and the costs related to it be them vehicle repair or medical and those determine the insurance company ratings more than a crash into a test barrier.The test barrier crash is a good start on getting crash data but not the final word. ----------------- TheSnoMan.com

Now that I've driven the big Dodge, I consider the Toyota a wanna be truck. YMMV.

Not really. The majority in a class do get a 4 star. The vehicles that don't are the exception.

Actually the 2007 Tundra was the only full size 2007 Pick-up that did not get 5 stars - so it is the exception.
