Cars Sold in Brazil Fail Tests

Four of the highest-selling cars in Brazil did not pass independent crash testing. The cars do not follow the same federal safety standards as others sold in the US and Europe. This may influence the number of car wrecks and injuries. Most of the cars are not made in Brazil, but they’re sold there after getting built somewhere else. Safety experts say local regulators could enforce improved safety standards so that automakers change their policies, according to news reports.
