Don't think I've seen this before.
Aw man, my wifes first car was a 97 Cavalier. I did NOT feel safe in that thing at all. I could feel the chassis flex. You know it's bad when I felt safer in my 86 Celica (My first one, aww) with NO airbags and NO crumplezones than I did in that Cavalier.Lol Wranglers have been doing that for decades now. Where I live they are relegated to bro-truck duty, pristine and never seeing any offroad. The typical owner I hope is aware of the risks and hopefully didn't buy them for safety.
Although I hear Chrysler is scrambling to revise them for this "issue." I wonder how the new Gladiator holds up, I've been seeing a lot of those lately. I seem to remember they had a welding issue or something.
Lol the safety issue reminds me of when I put my very first daily driver ('99 Chevy Cavalier) up for sale. Got a reply from some dad from the parts of Cali that nobody cares about (basically farmland, hilbilly-town)...admittedly it felt like he was trying to do the right thing for his daughter's first car. That gen Cavalier was well-known for being unsafe if T-boned (2 stars out of 5), and he kept telling me about how he did his research and chose the Cavalier because it was "very safe and I am concerned for my daughter." I dunno where he got his data from. Luckily his daughter wanted a slightly newer Civic like all her friends had (much safer car) and he passed on it.

I showed her the safety ratings for her car when my engine blew (Couldn't afford to get a new engine or rebuild as it was a 2se and hard to come by, sold my first Celica for way more than I bought it for though) and then the ratings on a 7th Gen Celica. Needless to say, we traded in her Cavalier for the Celica haha.
