Think Safety When Buying Your New Car

In the Market for a New Vehicle in 2018?

If you’ll be purchasing a new car, truck or SUV this year, you might already have narrowed down your list of possibilities based on appearance, features and performance. But have you considered safety?

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and the Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI) have just made it easier for you to know how your favorite makes and models measure up in terms of safety.  They have published their 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK+ list and their TOP SAFETY PICK list.  The difference lies mostly in the performance of their headlights and their degree of passenger-side protection.

Auto Insurance Tip

Before you sign on the dotted line at the dealership, you’ll want to check with your insurance agent to see how that new vehicle will affect your insurance costs.  In fact, your agent might suggest some questions to ask your car salesperson before making your final decision.  Then, after you make your purchase, don’t forget to update your auto insurance policy so that your coverage is in place.
