Maybe Toyota should take a page out of these guys’ book.
In what can only be described as car abuse of the highest order, Chevrolet’s quirky Department 180 shows us just how far they would go to test the overall strength and stability of a 2010 Chevrolet Equinox. These guys really don’t know the whole concept of easing up on testing because they threw the Equinox pretty much everything it could handle - a "parade of punishment", as they’d like to call it - including a storm-simulated water intrusion test that tests how the vehicle can withstand a torrential hurricane.
On one hand, you gotta feel bad for the this particular Equinox that was pretty much beat up from bumper to bumper. But on the other hand, its extreme testing like this that ensures us the cars we drive are of the highest quality and not one that comes with a boatload of performance malfunctions.
Somewhere, a Toyota executive just got a massive migraine.
