An auto-insurance trade organization has drummed up a list of the safest automobile models, and Honda, Subaru (part-owned by GM) and Audi vehicles fill eight of the top 13 slots. The other five are also foreign models: Saab, Mercedes, Hyundai, Kia and Volvo. Maybe memories of this car still haunt the auto-buying public.
