The sheer amount of vehicles on the road today makes a crash inevitable, so recognizing which car safety options you must have becomes important. We have gone from the days of optional seatbelts to standard airbags, traction control, as well as tire pressure monitoring systems in almost all brand-new cars on the market. The list of optional safety options that’s currently offered on the majority of cars is astonishing, and we’re working hard to make sure that your new Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram is the safest one yet.
Currently, the NHTSA judges automobiles on a 5-Star scale based on their performance in 3 particular crash tests: Front Crashes, Side Collisions, and Rollover Collisions. While accidents can happen in other scenarios these kinds of crashes are the most typical, and based upon the research of these crashes, the appropriate safety tools are implemented in a vehicle; so let’s take a peek at each scenario:
This is when 2 automobiles are going in opposite directions and hit each other in a head-on accident, or when an automobile loses control and strikes an object (like a tree, utility post, or a building) in a head-on accident.
One of the most common side crash scenarios is when one automobile doesn’t stop at a stop sign or traffic light and strikes the other automobile on the side. This is typically referred to as a t-bone, as the automobiles create a ‘T’ shape when they crash. One more type of side collision is when a vehicle loses control and slides sideways right into an obstacle like an energy post or tree.
This scenario is when you lose control of your automobile and it rolls over. A rollover can be set off by losing control of your automobile or a mix of serious maneuvers such as fast, high-speed turns to miss a barrier.
In spite of all of the emerging vehicle safety technologies, there are only a few that are considered mandatory by law. These mandated safety attributes consist of Seatbelts, Airbags, LATCH child safety seat system, Tire-Pressure Monitor, Electronic Stability Control, and Backup Cameras. All-new automobiles will have that tech and additionally, the NHTSA suggests the following Vehicle Driver Assistance Technologies:
This function identifies a possible accident and signals the vehicle driver a warning.
This tech immediately uses the brakes when a forward collision is looming.
This system monitors lane markings and warns the vehicle driver if they accidentally leave their lane.
While now standard on most brand-new automobiles, adding a camera to older cars and trucks is recommended.
This list should not be taken as an exhaustive list of safety functions, there will always be many different and new tech that will help keep you safer.
Brought my Jeep Grand Cherokee in and told them as best I could what the problem was. They diagnosed the problem and fixed the problem perfect. Very, very impressed on how fast they fixed it and could not be more pleased with my service advisor and the technician that fixed it. The whole experience from start to finish was great.
I had a great experience at Mike Smith Dodge . Nice and friendly mechanic. Great job..Keep up the great work. Thank you.
