Well the test are what they are...starts at 35 mph and they keep testing up to 50 mph until it rolls over. The model X didnít roll at the test of 50 mph. Apples to apples test, it didnít rollover.

I agree any car, SUV, truck could rollover at excessive speeds, but the Model X has less of a chance given the test results.

yea, no. it is definitely not SOP. It's a single car crash with no property damage liability and no fatalities. Celebrity is involved, that's the only reason for doing this.

I thought that the sheriff spoke too soon the other day. It will be interesting to see what really caused the accident.

I used to live a block away from there. Her mustíve been speeding a lot, esp going downhill, for the car to lose control like that. Also mustíve had a green light as thereís a light near there too. Iíve driven that part like a million times. Very odd that they now say itís such a dangerous road. Itís not a pedestrian friendly piece of road as itís all uphill/downhill and cars do travel quite fast, but like I said here mustíve been going really fast and was totally distracted. A little bit down the road from there, there is also a huge runoff section for big trucks. Crazy!!

Any time a vehicle flips over, swaps ends or exits the roadway, excessive speed and loss of control is involved.

It was a loaner car for a tournament, I think. And isn't Woods a spokesman for Hyundai/Genesis?

..or a GT3 or Lambo Gallardo which he would have been far safer in.
The Genesis was a loose cannon in those circumstances.

Like above stated, it was courtesy car from the tourney the week before. every week the players get courtesy cars. He doesn't have a house/car here so he prob was using that ride during the duration of his stay.

Can't be good news for the sponsors then apart from the news given of the wreck, he remembers nothing at all of the off and why it happened.

For those who thought this would negatively effect Genesis.

Genesis Begins to Break Through
Quote:
Originally Posted by Car and Driver
Of course, no one would have anticipated that sponsoring a golf tournament would catapult Genesis' name into push notifications when a GV80 courtesy car driven by tournament host Tiger Woods crashed on a curvy stretch of road in southern California on February 23. Grisly crash photos and the fact that Woods escaped with serious but apparently not life-threatening injuries may have helped cement Genesis' focus on safety in customers' minds. In the two days after the crash, traffic to Car and Driver's GV80 page was up more than 850 percent versus the previous week.

Benson says GV80 sales skyrocketed in the week after Woods' accident, with some business from customers who were hearing about the brand for the first time. "We more than doubled our month in that last week" of February he says, which propelled Genesis of Bend to its best sales month ever. When we talked to him in mid-March, interest was still high.

Even before the GV80 was a factoid in a major news story, the fledgling brand's first utility vehicle was drawing customers into showrooms. The brand's biggest problem now may be that the GV80 is responsible for so much of the brand's current success. At Shawn Treadway's dealership, when customers come in for a GV80 but aren't willing to wait, they're more likely to shift to a Hyundai Palisade than another Genesis, the rest of which are sedans. Benson estimated that 90 percent of his customers were looking for a GV80, and even the availability of all-wheel drive doesn't tempt buyers in his snowy market to the brand's sedans. But if the launch this summer of the compact crossover GV70 goes as planned, the GV80 won't have to shoulder the burden alone for long.

You'd think he'd have the courtesy not to roll the courtesy car...

I stopped following the story. Have they figured out just how the hell he crashed yet? I mean other than obviously speeding, etc. What happened to the black box?

Last thing I read was there was possible evidence of him falling asleep behind the wheel, but honestly I haven't bothered to check since.
