BA - NRMA Safety Results

I just caught something on the news (channel 10) about the safest car on the road featured tonight and they showed a picture of the BA falcon.

Has it won this to? Can anyone confirm this?

Sorry guys, just saw it on the news. BA still remains the most inexpensive large car to repair, however its costs $1000 more than the AU3 last year.

Unfortunetly the Ford Ka was the most expensive for small cars. Oh well, one win, one loss.

This was not a safety test, just a 'cost of repair' test.

Yeah, but it's funny how the BA was cheaper than every other car tested. Just like last year .

It was the best in its class of "large family cars'.
