The U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) latest rollover resistance ratings and crash test results are now available.

The U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) latest rollover resistance ratings and crash test results are now available on the agency's World Wide Web site: http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/ . This information is for 2002 model year vehicles.

Rated for frontal impact are the Ford Focus two-door, Lexus ES300 four- door sedan, Mitsubishi Eclipse two-door, Toyota Avalon four-door sedan, Buick Rendezvous 4x4 four-door utility, Honda CR-V 4x4 four-door utility, Jeep Liberty 4x4 four-door utility, Toyota Sequoia 4x4 four-door utility, Toyota Tundra 4x2 four-door pickup.

The New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) reports rollover resistance ratings and crash test results in a range of one to five stars, with five stars showing the best safety protection for vehicles. Frontal tests should be compared only within the same weight class.

A fact sheet, containing explanatory information and tables showing NCAP rollover resistance ratings and crash tests results for model year 2002 vehicles, can be obtained by calling the NHTSA Office of Public and Consumer Affairs, 202-366-9550; the Auto Safety Hotline, 1-888-327-4236; or by writing to NHTSA Public Affairs, Room 5232, 400 Seventh St., S.W., Washington, DC. 20590.
