Newer Cars Are Much Safer Than Old Cars According to the NHTSA Report

That’s not a secret that new cars are much safer than old cars, but what we did not know is by how much. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration just released a report highlighting the added safety of newer cars and trucks over older cars and trucks, and attaching real data to an otherwise assumed theory is always a good idea.

 

Here are some of the most powerful data points worth seeing:

  • 55 percent: Occupants fatally injured in vehicles built prior to 1984

  • 53 percent: Occupants fatally injured in vehicles built between 1985 and 1992

  • 46 percent: Occupants fatally injured in vehicles built between 1993 and 1997

  • 42 percent: Occupants fatally injured in vehicles built between 1997 and 2002

  • 36 percent: Occupants fatally injured in vehicles built between 2002 and 2007

  • 31 percent: Occupants fatally injured in vehicles built between 2008 and 2012

  • 26 percent: Occupants fatally injured in vehicles built between 2013 and 2017


 

Using the most recent fatal crash data, this analysis supports previous research in finding that a higher proportion of the occupants of older MY vehicles suffered a fatal injury. In addition, the proportion of vehicle occupants who were fatally injured increases with the age of the vehicle.

    25 Nov 2017

    With winter on its way, the roads can be dangerous because it dries slower and road visibility as well as battery failure can also be hazardous.

  • Fire Risk: BMW Recalls 185,000 Cars TODAY
    19 Apr 2019

    The recall expansion covers 3 Series, 5 Series and Z4 models from the 2006 model year. The problem has been traced to irregularities in the manufacturing process that could allow moisture to occur near the PCV valve heater and lead to a short circuit. The PCV valve is an emissions device that keeps pollutants created by an engine from being released into the atmosphere. It also helps keep the engine oil clean and prevents crankcase pressure from building up. BMW warns its customers to stop driving the vehicle if there is smoke coming from the engine, or if the driver smells smoke or plast...
