    Only affects 27 customers, but certain cars manufactured between Sept 1 and Sept 22 don't mean Federal crash test requirements that went into effect on Sept 1. The solution? They'll offer a car made before September that doesn't have to meet the new requirements. Personally, I think they should give them one made after the 22nd that does meet the new requirements.

    Hmmm. Could be interesting... The consumer could state that they purchased the vehicle after checking out the manufacturing date as they wanted a vehicle that met the new specs. So, now that they are getting a vehicle manufactured before Sept. 1 that will definitely not meet the new specs, you wonder what kind of case they would have.

    Anyone know what the new specs actually are? The article didn't say...

    I believe there is a new side impact pole test.
