Does the Safety Rating affect Your Vehicle Purchase? December 16, 2007

The media sells us speed, style, comfort, the sound system, wheels, etc, etc. on today’s car models.  But, what about the safety rating of the car itself?  The majority of us have had car accidents affect our lives in one way or another.  It happens so quickly and they are hard to avoid.  Perhaps many of us can count recent “close calls” that could have turned bad. 

I recently purchased a 2007 Nissan Sentra SE-R and I must admit it was the style and power that drew me to the car.  However it was the safety rating that made me want to buy the car.  I live in an area where the roads are icy throughout the winter.  When I am driving in winter conditions it feels good to know that I am protected by side and front airbags. There are safer cars on the market and I know the next vehicle purchase I make will be solely based on safety.

Maybe we should all be driving Audi’s and Subaru’s.
