2004 TL Crash tested by IIHS today. A TOV'er was there!

TOV member rwr4a was on hand today to witness the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety's high speed crash testing of the 2004 Acura TL. Tomorrow they will be testing the 2004 Acura TSX. Here are his photos and comments:



Jeff - you don't know me, but I am a Honda nut and
frequent visitor to TOV. I live in Charlottesville,
VA, which is just down the road from the Insurance
Institute for Highway Safety. Anyway, I went to the
high-speed crash of the TL this morning and snapped a
few pictures...and thought maybe about sharing them
with TOV readers. Overall, the TL did well. There
appeared to be good energy absorption up front, and
deformation of the occupant compartment was minimal.
I didn't stick around to see the dummy sensor data,
but that will be released with their evaluation
sometime soon.
