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.

Without getting into the trial, we have no idea how anyone can claim roof strength has nothing to do with rollover survival rates.
