Crash Test Ratings
According to Autoblog, two Virginia Commonwealth University professors compared crash test ratings from NHTSA and IIHS to determine whether a highly rated car actually changes the likelihood of an accident related death. Long story short, if you drive a car then paying attention to the crash statistics is a good thing. If you drive a truck or SUV, you can just ignore them because the curve is flat. Interesting. So if you want to go cheap, get a truck.
