Buying a car is easy these days with all the EMI or loan options available with all the banks but it is very difficult yet crucial to decide a safe car for yourself and to maintain the car’s safety. Car safety should be the utmost concern for people who already have a car or for those who are planning to buy one in future.
Market is flooded with different brands and models these days. Every now and then, the car models are upgraded, so we as customers should upgrade our knowledge too regarding every feature that a brand and its model is offering us. Cars.com is a great site to check out, research and find a car that’s right for you. Coming to this post, I am going to be talking about CAR’S SAFETY. Let’s look at it now –
- Know your car’s basics
- If you already own a car be aware of all the details and technicalities of your car.
- If you are planning to buy a car research thoroughly about the car you are planning to purchase and don’t forget to compare it with other options available in the market.
- Always remember to keep the required documents while travelling or while making a purchase.
- Tyre repair kit and tool kit
- These kits are always provided in the car but make sure to maintain and refill them as per requirement.
- Always keep a check on your tyres’ air pressure because both over inflation and under inflation can lead to serious accidents.
- Never exceed the speed limit, not only it is an offence but it can be dangerous for you too as it increases the chances of an accident.
- Keep your speed slow on wet roads or in bad weather to avoid accidents.
Specially for new buyers
- Crash avoidance technology
- This technology is available with many models so look for car models that offer such crash worthy designs to reduce death and injury risks.
- Always opt for air bags, good tyre grips and always compare the structure of the model with other available options within the budget before buying. Remember, expensive cars are not always the best in class.
- Check vehicle’s rating online and crash test videos
This will help you know a lot about car’s various strengths. You can also look for features like –
- Forward collision warning
- Look for a car with a strong roof to avoid injuries in any accident/roll over.
- Compare the seat/head restraint details with other models.
- Adaptive headlights
- Blind spot detection
