did this one on Saturday night. it wasn't in my car and i wasn't the driver. must of been doing at least 80mph and blew a stop sign. hit the first wall on the right at full speed. some how took a 2nd chunk out of that wall with 20ft gap between the first point of impact and the 2nd hole on the wall. somehow ended upside down going into the wall in the back. and made pretty good hole in that wall which is where the car was stopped. this was in a Camaro z28. i was in the passenger seat. i haven't seen the car yet but my mom said she seen it being towed and the passenger side where i was sitting pretty smashed in. i ended up with really sore neck and my face is pretty cut up. the driver came out with little to no scratches. it was actually a good thing we hit that first wall cause it could've been a lot worse if we went head on to the last wall.

still a jacked up neck since the accident. gonna be feeling this for a very long while. love your family every second and always think twice about who you're getting in a car with. i highly doubt a forte would've kept me here on this earth after something like that. just a friendly reminder for my fellow brothers out on the street

Obviously we won't know how well a Forte is going to behave until someone wrecks one at high speed. That being said, don't count the Forte out so quickly. The Forte does very well in every crash test except the small overlap. And I've seen small cars crash at a high rate of speed with no fatalities.

Back in 2013, before the general avilablity of the new Dodge Dart, one of them was wrecked "at a high rate of speed". There isn't a specific listed, but the car flipped over a landscape bolder and proceeded to destroy an attached garage and damaged the cars inside. The dart ended up on its side. Several injuries, but no deaths. Cars are stronger than they ever have been. I would much rather be in a wreck in the Forte than an older Camaro.

When I was in college I was driving in my 1966 Impala back to school on July 5th and was involved in a 5 car pileup caused by two drunken teenagers. There wasn't a straight piece of metal on that car it was so bad. It had lap belts only. I had my lap belt on but I actually bent the top half of that big 'ole steering wheel at a 30 degree angle bracing myself. I had driven a buddy home from school but he stayed a few more days at home so he wasn't with me luckily. The passenger side dashboard kinda of jutted out at the passenger and he probably would have had the top of his head sliced off if he was belted and gone through the glass if he wasn't. In contrast my wife was in a near head on accident on the highway when the other driver fell asleep. Her friend was driving a 2009 Honda CRV and was able to walk away (with a shit ton of bruising) when the bags deployed, my wife wasn't as lucky, suffering an arm broken in two places (and a shit ton of bruises) , but that was the worst of it. They both survived a head on crash thanks to the advances in safety that we all enjoy.

I am glad you are okay man, but keep the shiny side up from now on! :D
