The AX a safe car? economical, fun, possibly, but the reason I sold mine was the flimsy lightweight construction. Plastic bonnet and boot panels and thin metal made me very nervous - esp when mine conked out with a 10 ton truck behind me! still that's the trade off between economy and safety with the ax. however my sister did role it when she owned it and it didn't even lose a hub cap! - not until I kerbed it two years later, but that's another story!!!
