Honda to Put NHTSA Crash Ratings on Monroney Stickers
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Honda Motor Co. will begin voluntarily posting crash-test ratings by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on the window stickers of all 2006 car and trucks, providing consumers this valuable information at the time of purchase, reported the Detroit News. Until now, consumers had to research crash-test ratings on their own via the Internet or other means.
A new vehicle’s window sticker, known as a Monroney, currently reveals information such as price, vehicle features, fuel economy figures, emissions, and where the vehicle was built, but not crash test ratings.
Honda plans to include government safety ratings on all 2006-model-year Honda and Acura cars and light-duty trucks, according to John Mendel, senior vice president of automobile operations for American Honda Motor Co, as reported by the Detroit News.
