Evaluating A Used Car: Finding A Sound Vehicle

…continued

Power windows are important when regularly using garages where card keys or tickets are required for entry or remote mail boxes. Once vinyl was the answer to easy maintenance for drivers with children, but durable leather interiors have become a popular choice for parents of active youngsters. At the same time, cloth has its benefits in extreme temperatures. Be careful of built-in child seats. The manufacturers should be applauded for offering them, but their useful life is very short for a specific-sized child, and can result in comfort compromises. In fact, a removable version may be preferable.

Whether It Meets Your Security Needs

Safety will be evaluated in two areas -- passive and active. Passive safety is made up of all the features that enhance the car's ability to protect you and avoid accidents or danger. Active features are those you control to protect yourself. It may be preferable to concentrate on the former, but both are helpful.

Passive safety features include the airbags, side-impact airbags, side-impact bars, antilock system for the brakes, chassis structure, crush zones traction control , seat belts, central locking systems, alarms, delayed light extinguishing, and home security links which help keep you and the car safe.

Active items are those under the driver's control to more effectively avoid accidents. They are the driver's primary line of defense. Active safety features include high quality, reliable brakes -- particularly front and rear disc brakes as they are more modern and reliable than the old drum brakes , especially under wet conditions. Handling is another component which involves stiffer suspension so that the car reacts instantly to commands. Vehicle power is also important as it determines the car's ability to react to the driver's demand for acceleration in situations where speeding past danger is preferable to a sudden stop.

Obviously, the driver is the most important active safety device in a car, and a good driving attitude, honed car control skills, and elimination of distractions will save much grief. Picking the best route to drive, maintaining distance from other vehicles while on the highway, and choosing the best place to park will protect more than any device. Actively remembering to use your seat belt is an important interaction with one of the most important passive safety features in a car -- one so many people forget to use or think they can do without. Unfortunately the press and public have paid much more attention to the major passive features like airbags, side impact bars, and antilock brakes that only come into play when there is a problem. A driver's level of concentration, skill and willingness to buckle-up are the most effective tools for avoiding problems.
