New Survey Says That Three Automobile Brands Rank As The Least Safe In WA

My wife in her Dodge Journey hit that car at 70 miles an hour. Her airbag deployed and she luckily got off the road.

She jumped out of her car a little banged up but was able to render aid to the occupants of the other vehicle.

I couldn't imagine being in such an accident but my wife is an amazing resourceful person who can stay calm under such circumstances.

A new survey thanks to ranked the safest and least safe brands of vehicles on the road in Washington State.


The survey analyzed the top three car brands in each U.S. state that reported the most fatal car crashes over a decade.

Using this information from the NHTSA, the researchers were able to determine which brands were among the safest.


These are the safest auto brands in Washington, according to a decade's worth of fatal crashes:

#1: Mercedes-Benz

#2: Hyundai

#3: Lexus

Most dangerous brands for Washington drivers:

#1: Dodge

#2: Acura

#3: Mitsubishi

It is important to note that there are many different factors to consider when evaluating the safety of a car brand, such as the specific model and year of the vehicle.

Advancements in safety technology and design have led to significant improvements in car safety across all brands in recent years. Nonetheless, it is important for consumers to do their research and prioritize safety when selecting a vehicle.

My wife's experience with her Dodge was a good one but she eventually has now owned two Subaru's since her accident with Subaru ranking high as one of the safest vehicles on the road.
