Used Cars in Morrisville: Airbags and ABS

Front air bags are now standard on all new vehicles, and can actually be found on many used cars. Air bag technology has saved thousands of lives each year. A newer airbag technology is called dual-stage front air bags. In a low-level collision, the system inflates the front air bags less aggressively--with 70 to 80 percent of the force of a single-stage air bag. The best air-bag systems can detect the presence, height, and seat position for the driver and front passenger, and deactivate or de-power front air bags as appropriate to minimize the chance of injury to out-of-position occupants or children. If a vehicle is in an accident the system automatically notifies the dispatch center, locates the vehicle, and sends emergency aid if the driver does not respond to an inquiry.

Telematics can be found on later model used cars. Without antilock brakes (ABS) you can't steer if the wheels lock up, and locked wheels can cause a vehicle to slide sideways. Antilock brakes use wheel-speed sensors at each wheel and a computer. If the car starts to drift, the stability-control system momentarily brakes one or more wheels and, depending on the system, reduces engine power to keep the car back on course. Electronic stability control started on luxury cars and has expanded to SUVs and many other vehicles. The system features built-in lower anchors and top-tether attachment points allowing LATCH-compatible child safety seats to be installed without using the vehicle's safety-belt system.
