Chery contends that the test was biased. The lab that conducted it is owned by Russia'* biggest car maker, OAO Avtovaz, a major Chery competitor.
I've noticed there'* no mention of an UNbiased crash test...how many governments actually have government crash tests?

I saw that a few days ago. If you read the whjole article, it becomes more clear that Chery knew they had problems and I highly doubt the test was that biased, if at all.

Read the whole article and it becomes clear that they have a ways to go before their vehicles are as safe as the rest of today'* competitive vehicles.
