"The Most And Least Died-In Vehicles Of 2006-2009"

Quote:
Forget crash test results, star ratings, or the number of acronym-laden electronic nanny systems that a vehicle has. If you’re a play-it-by-the-numbers kind of person and want to know safe a car is, statistically speaking, you’ll want to check out the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s new status report on “Dying In A Crash” [PDF]. The latest data comes from the 2006-2009 period, and includes only 2005-2008 model-year vehicles with at least 100,000 “registered vehicle years” in that time frame (if a vehicle was substantially redesigned in 2005-08, only the most recent design is included). Also,

researchers adjusted for a variety of factors that affect crash rates, including driver age and gender, calendar year, vehicle age, and vehicle density at the garaging location. Previously, researchers had adjusted only for driver age and gender.

“The adjusted driver death rates do abetter job of teasing out differences among vehicles, but they can only go so far. For one thing, people don’t behave the same when they’re behind the wheel of a sports car as when they’re driving a minivan. And some people are more susceptible to injury and death for reasons that can’t completely be adjusted for.”

Keep in mind that this data is for drivers only, since passenger data is harder to adjust for. Also, statistics don’t determine your safety on an individual level… that’s up to you every time you take the wheel. For more caveats (and the complete list), check out the report itself… or just wave this in front of your friends and family members who drive cars on the “highest rates of driver death” list, and hyperventilate at them. They’ll either thank you or tell you to take your nannyish concern elsewhere.

I thought the RSX is at the top three??!~?

I see the 350Z is still tops. Even in Vancouver there have been a few high-profile crashes of 350's with deaths involved.

Range Rover zero deaths? Guess they forgot to add "drove bys" to the list.

My parents had a Toyota Sienna, that thing was amazing. They hydroplaned on the I5 in the states, hit a barrier, totaled the car, yet the doors still opened up completely fine, as if nothing was wrong.

add up all the separate versions of the Titan they list, and get the 'real' number. For the sake of statistics, I'm willing to assume the crew cab the same as the quad cab.

Remember that commercial about the Titan when it first came out? Went something along the lines "first time...ladder frame..etc."

I love it how they bragged about something that the Americans had been doing since the land before time.

They fucked up, big time.

I will vouch for that thing being a tank. I was in an accident in my friend's Sienna. Car t-boned us in the driver side door at about 45 kph. Only thing that happened was the door dented, driver front tire popped, and the cup holder fell out. I was convinced.
