Poor protection of the driver chest translates to high possibilities of life threatening injuries. Poor protection for any of the critical body regions, in this case the chest, limits the star rating to one star for the adults.

The Redi-Go does not feature (SBR) Seat Belt Reminders at the front seats, and the SBR points were limited due to possible chest injuries. Child occupant protection was rated as poor because of contact of the head for test dummies representing an 18-month old, and because of an exposed head of the dummy representing a 3-year old.

Thoughts About The One Star Rating

This is legendary! Safety results somehow remind us of the Fred Flintstones' car. All man-power and zero safety. In fact, we think Fred's car was safer thanks to those logs of wood for wheels. We wonder if these manufacturers will get fined for offering almost no safety. They should be fined, heavily. But that's our opinion. We're sure someone at the transport ministry has already received a large under-the-table payout to do nothing.
