    Such demonstrations are very convincing for the public, and some people will talk about the success of a particular model. I advised my friend about Subaru and he immediately bought one. Now, if he had a comparison study, perhaps he would have gone for a Buick. But when I watch this video I am frustrated there is no useful caption obvious to me to tell us the speed of the car. I have trouble guessing, and I shouldn't have to. The crash dummy benefits for the air bags, no obvious broken neck. I like that. But we can see how his head probably makes a touchdown anyway at the goalpost. I wonder if the airbag can be mounted above, expand downward, and be shaped to wrap in front of the roof support. The speed of the air bag appears entirely workable. Maybe the support can house an airbag. Nice demonstration but put a big caption there for a few seconds and give the impact speed.

Aftermarket parts are parts that are installed on a vehicle once it's been sold to the end user. Sometimes parts are installed "aftermarket" because an owner wants higher performance equipment or alternative parts than what is installed at the factory.

Size Matters

By Sherb Brown
There is little doubt that the folks out there with 5,000-10,000 vehicles have a good handle on how much they should be paying; for everything from bucket trucks to sedan floor mats. But some of our recent survey data shows that vast hordes of the fleet market are paying close to retail rates for a lot of products and services.
