AAA Publishes 'Buying a Safer Car' Brochure

December 09, 2009

LOS ANGELES --- Vehicle buyers looking for safety information can now compare models using AAA's "Buying a Safer Car" brochure, which includes information on crash tests, rollover ratings and safety features.   

The brochure was produced jointly by AAA and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It is available at local AAA offices and online.

"The brochure enables motorists to compare all new vehicle features to ensure getting the best value while seeking a vehicle that maximizes fuel economy and also has safety features that motorists desire," said Steve Mazor, manager of the Auto Club's Automotive Research Center.  

According to Mazor, of the nearly 2 million injury-causing crashes each year, the majority are either frontal or side crashes. The brochure separates vehicles into categories by type and size and rates them by (1 to 5 stars) how much they exceed the federal government's minimum standards.
