It should also be noted that like the Pinto,the more popular Crown Victoria has also had some safety issues in regards to its fuel tank as well.
Most of those were overblown in relation to the energies involved (80 mph + collisions as opposed to the low speed sort in the Pinto). The CVPI and now the Taurus interceptor were the only cars certified to withstand a 75 mph rear impact test with minimal fuel leakage. They also put in fire suppression systems as an option on the police packages.
