Feeling Safe in a Dodge Avenger

If you are in the market for a new car and opt to buy a 2013 Dodge Avenger, you are making a safe choice. We're not talking about risk or coolness factors here. This is literally about safety.

The 2013 Dodge Avenger has been included on the list of safest cars released by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for this year. It occupies a spot on the list with other reliable makes and models like the Honda Accord, Ford Fusion, Kia Optima and Subaru Outback. This is great news for Dodge owners who love their car and want to upgrade to a new model.

Placement on the IIHS list speaks volumes to the quality of an automobile. Each vehicle tested by the IIHS is given a good, acceptable, marginal or poor rating based on rigorous criteria.

The main thing the IIHS does is put each vehicle through all types of crashes. It bases a crash test rating from head-on crashes, side impacts, rear impacts and roll overs. The IIHS also evaluates the effectiveness of seat belts, head restraints and air bags in protecting from head or neck injuries during impact.

In these categories, the 2013 Dodge Avenger rated at acceptable or good. It earned a top safety pick status from the IIHS. If you are a Texas resident you can test drive a Dodge Avenger at Holt DCJ of TX. If you live elsewhere, take a trip to your local Dodge dealer. You can get firsthand experience on how safe it feels and handles. 

That doesn't mean you should treat a trip to the grocery store like a lap down the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Driving a safe car does not mean much without a safe driver to go along with it. You don't get to rack up a higher score or power up by taking out fire hydrants, trees and other obstacles while going from point A to point B.

What driving a top safety pick car like the Dodge Avenger means is that you will be better protected from whatever loser chooses to do these sorts of things. You got to admit that feels comforting. None of us wants to feel like we are some obstacle meant to be taken out in some real-life first-person driving video game.
