I'm just glad I don't drive this hunk of junk
Watch both the inside and outside video of the crash. Keep an eye on the steering wheel.

From what I understand it pretty much is. The company bought the stamps from Isuzu, but is using really cheap materials to make it, ergo, the crappiness of it.

If you neck was not broken then your chest was caved in and an arm broken. The steering wheel came right up into the sholder/neck area.
