When a court case that focused on the strength of the Ford Explorer roof made it to the media, memos that showed Volvo engineers working on strengthening the XC90 roof took center stage. Lawyers said the documents disprove Ford's claim that roof strength is not an important factor in rollover crashes and Ford said that the memos exposes trade secrets and had them removed from evidence. Without getting into the trial, we have no idea how anyone can claim roof strength has nothing to do with rollover survival rates.
