loveutube77 claimed that it was some kind of cultural difference between the Japanese/Koreans and the Chinese which resulted in the Chinese cars having bad crash test ratings.
To show that his claim is total nonsense I've decided to point out a few Japanese cars (and one Japanese/Korean car) with not so great crash tests. Because anybody can go and pick the worst crash test results and put them in a video together.
The truth is that there are newer Chinese cars with good crash test ratings, and that the Chinese are still a few years behind the Japanese in auto technology so some of the cars crash still test like slightly older Japanese cars. Some of them are even licensed versions of Japanese cars so how can loveutube77 blame the Chinese for that?
I'm not being racist, I happen to love the Japanese and Koreans and have Japanese and Korean friends. But that doesn't mean I have to believe the idiots who put up racist videos claiming that their culture is somehow "superior" to other people's when it's just a matter of technology.

Since I'm getting so much flak for this video, I guess I should explain the premise better. What loveyoutube77 basically said in his video is China will NEVER be able to make safe cars. The point of my video is that given time, China will be able to do it. I'm not at all opposed at the numerous videos that compare 5 star rated cars to 0 star rated Chinese cars (a popular format here on youtube). 3 stars is barely acceptable & 0 stars that most Chinese cars are getting is unacceptable. BUT you have to understand that there are barely any Chinese vehicle in the foreign market, and probably even less crash tested ones, only around 5 if my count is correct; China doesn't even crash test cars. So undoubtedly Chinese cars aren't designed for crash safety at all. Given time in the foreign market, Chinese cars can improve. The Japanese & Korean cars in this video just shows even 5 years ago there were still unsafe Japanese & Korean cars; China is far behind those two countries so it will take some time to catch up. Remember, people laughed when Japanese & Korean cars were introduced in the US, now more people are laughing at American cars.
As always feel free to comment and rate.
This is a response to loveutube77's video.
I had to post this link because loveutube77 removed my video from his response list, it figures.
Update: Kicked out again from the response list.
Note that this video is only 5:45 minutes, somehow youtube made it 7:07, don't waste your time; there's nothing after I say "Thanks for watching!"
This guy says that he doesn't mean to be racist. Whatever, but I don't see how he has any good intentions. His screenname on autoblog is "I_Hate_China"! How the heck can he not be biased?
Link to his profile:
Link to one of his posts; basically exactly the same as his video's discription:
This video shows first how China's BS6 got 3/5 stars after revisions. It also shows many Japanese/Korean cars which also got horrible crash test ratings. (edited b/c too long, see above update)
Brilliance BS6: 0/5 stars then 3/5 stars
struck star = unacceptably high risk of life threatening injury
all stars out of 5.
2008 Nissan Navara, Euro-NCAP 1 star (struck star)
To be fair Navara had a retest and revision like the BS6 & got 3 stars
2008 Isuzu D-MAX/Rodeo, Euro-NCAP 2 stars (struck star)
ADAC (same test Landwind and BS6 went through) 1 star
2006-2009 Daewoo Gentra X (Kalos written on video is wrong)
/Chevrolet Aveo, Euro-NCAP 2 stars (struck star)
2003-2005 Kia Carnival/Sedona, Euro-NCAP 2 stars
As per United's request, I am including a link to the 2006-2008 Kia Carnival/Sedona which got 4 stars. I didn't include this before because it was a different generation from the 2003-2005 model. I felt any car after 2005 was fair game since the Landwind was a 2005 model.
Note the car in the video is the 03-05 model, so this link to the 06-08 model is not really a source.
Thanks for the feedback!
Bad Crash Tests Compilation 1
Here is a video compilation showing some vehicles that perform poorly on crash tests. This video includes vehicles other than cars. All of these vehicles did poorly on the crash test(s).

MINICARS MICROCARS CRASH TEST FAIL CAR CARS AUTOS New Crash
MINICARS MICROCARS CRASH TEST FAIL CAR CARS AUTOS New Crash Tests Demonstrate the Influence of Vehicle Size and Weight on Safety in Crashes Results Are Relevant To Fuel Economy Policies Three front-to-front crash tests, each involving a microcar or minicar into a midsize model from the same manufacturer, show how extra vehicle size and weight enhance occupant protection in collisions. These Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tests are about the physics of car crashes, which dictate that very small cars generally can't protect people in crashes as well as bigger, heavier models.
"There are good reasons people buy minicars," says Institute president Adrian Lund. "They're more affordable, and they use less gas. But the safety trade-offs are clear from our new tests. Equally clear are the implications when it comes to fuel economy. If automakers downsize cars so their fleets use less fuel, occupant safety will be compromised. However, there are ways to serve fuel economy and safety at the same time."
The Institute didn't choose SUVs or pickup trucks, or even large cars, to pair with the micro and minis in the new crash tests. The choice of midsize cars reveals how much influence some extra size and weight can have on crash outcomes. The Institute chose pairs of 2009 models from Daimler, Honda, and Toyota because these automakers have micro and mini models that earn good frontal crashworthiness ratings, based on the Institute's offset test into a deformable barrier. Researchers rated performance in the 40 mph car-to-car tests, like the front-into-barrier tests, based on measured intrusion into the occupant compartment, forces recorded on the driver dummy, and movement of the dummy during the impact.
Laws of physics prevail: The Honda Fit, Smart Fortwo, and Toyota Yaris are good performers in the Institute's frontal offset barrier test, but all three are poor performers in the frontal collisions with midsize cars. These results reflect the laws of the physical universe, specifically principles related to force and distance.

Can't be bothered with kids' safety seats in the car? Well if you crash or even brake suddenly, maybe you'll get lucky and be able to catch them as they sail by... you'll have about one tenth of a second. For more clips (in Arabic too) check out salimandsalimah.org/film.htm
