I know Many Car Buyers Shop With Safety In Mind. This New Test Will Be A Part Of What Many Buyers Will Consider While Shopping For A New Car. It Will Probably Cause Some Current Owners To Reconsider Their Purchases.
News outlets report that out of 18 cars crashed in the test,
2 scored “good”
11 scored “acceptable”
3 scored “marginal”
2 scored “poor” (both Toyotas).
Would you buy a new car that scores “Poor” in any area of IIHS or NHTSA crash tests ?
Would you buy one for yourself to drive ?
Would you buy one for a family member to drive ?
Should there be better coordination between testing facilities and car company engineers to ensure better results in tests ?
What ideas or recommendations do you have, concerning auto collision safety ?
