Hamilton Used Cars: Safety Features

From consumers to automakers to the federal government, vehicle safety is a top priority. If you compare a vehicle from even ten or twenty years ago to one of today it is apparent how far the technology has advanced in a relatively small amount of time. If you look at how many laws having to do with automobiles have been put in effect this decade it is obvious the government is part of the future of vehicle safety. Consumers, too, are much more aware. More people wear seatbelts than ever before. More children are properly secured in a child seat than before. A major concern for consumers when they buy used cars in PA is that it will have up to date safety features. Make sure your vehicle has ABS, front airbags, and seat belt pretensioners, to name a few. A bonus of purchasing a used car from the last few model years means it is likely to have even more features, such a side impact airbags, backup sensors, traction control, crumple zones, even services that automatically notify authorities if the vehicle has been in an accident. When you find a model you are interested in check the ratings of it, there are several different categories vehicles are tested in.

In a rear end collision, the design of a used car's head restraints and seats are critical factors in how severe a whiplash injury will be. Two other important factors are braking and emergency handling. Make sure your used car is sufficient in this area. Blind zones can make it very difficult to see behind your vehicle.  A contributing factor is that some larger vehicles have larger blind zones--the area behind a vehicle that the driver can’t see. It is a good ides to check the blind zone on your used car. Sit in the driver’s seat of the parked vehicle while someone stands in back and holds out a hand at about waist level. Have the person walk back slowly until you can see the hand through the rear window.
