Style, value, and size are all important traits to look for in a car. But the most important factor for many shoppers is safety, which can save lives in the event of a collision. When test driving a car, make sure that the car has good rear and side visibility. Some vehicles have very small windows and large rear pillars, resulting in large blind spots that make a car accident more likely. Before buying a car, test drive it at night to ensure that the headlights are effective. Airbags are also important, and the more the better. Side airbags are incredibly effective at preventing injuries if the vehicle is hit from the side, while knee airbags and head airbags help in any type of accident, even rollovers.
