Cars With Most and Least Fatalities

July 13, 2017

Safety is a huge concern when it comes to cars - we all want vehicles that will protect us during an accident. Personally, my preference is to own a small vehicle, but as statistics show, smaller vehicles have much higher death rates during an accident, so I personally choose to drive a larger vehicle.

This week, Forbes compiled a list of cars from the 2014 model year that had the most and least passenger fatalities. As expected, larger vehicles had less fatalities, and the list of most fatalities was made up almost entirely of sub-compact vehicles.

If you're considering a sub-compact vehicle, this is something you need to take into account unfortunately.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
