Making Sense of Vehicle Safety Ratings

If you’re planning to purchase a used vehicle in the near future, it’s critical that you have all the available information that you’ll need to make an informed decision. Keep reading to learn more about the different vehicle safety ratings issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety subjects vehicles to five different crash tests that are designed to measure safety in offset, front, side and rollover crashes and issues a rating of Good, Acceptable, Marginal or Poor. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issues a star rating, with five stars being the best, that’s based on two crash tests and a mathematical analysis of rollover potential.
