Default GS death. Too heavy, and roof too weak.

Proof that the GS is too heavy, and the roof frame is too weak.
it's so heavy, it broke a parking lift.

This would fail the new IIHS roof crash test.
Beware, you will not survive a rollover.

look at the C pillar. it buckled. The roof arch is supposed to be able to support thousands of pounds of weight. That's what we all learned in Physics.
