Many of us spend quite a bit of time in our cars, whether it be going to work, running errands, driving the kids to sports or just going out with the family. The question that we should be asking is that is my car safe?
When we are going to buy our vehicles there are a almost endless variety to choose from. Whether it be the type of vehicle you prefer from SUV to Sedan to Mini Van or even to Cross Over. It may be the brand that drives you, Toyota, Acura, Ford, Hyundai, BMW and Volkswagen are just a small list of the brands available.
How safe is the car is one of the most asked questions to car dealers. The answer will normally be positive as they wish to complete a sale. A good rule of thumb is to do your research on any vehicle you are thinking about purchasing.
To give you a start, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety publishes a list of the safest vehicles yearly. Below is a list of some of the cars that make their list.
