Non-American Cars Safest


The Insurance Institute for Safety has confirmed that there are no American vehicles on their list of safest cars and SUVs for 2007. Imports took all 13 awards for the safest vehicles in each class.

The institute noted that vehicle stability control is one of the primary factors, and American manufacturers have been slow to install this technology. It is believed that some 10,000 fatal crashes a year could be prevented with this technology.

The 2007 list of safe vehicles released today includes the Audi A4 and A6, Saab 9-3, Subaru Legacy, Tribeca and Forester, Mercedes M Class, Honda Pilot and CR-V, Acura RDX, Hyundai Entourage, Kia Sedona and the Volvo XC90.

American cars are kind of going to hell.. I own a Mazda RX-7, and a BMW 325i - I love them. Some of my friends own Pontiacs, or WORSE - FORD. And they really are pieces of crap. FORD may hit the dust soon to Toyota, which is also slowly taking GM's place as the largest. But eventually I could see GM modernizing, getting rid of unions, and ... basically becoming more like Toyota. Until things improve, my next vehicle in a few years (since my BMW is still NEW) will be either another BMW or a Toyota.
