We're Providing A Free Copy of Car, Truck, and SUV Crashworthiness and Damage Risk Report


Federal law (49 CFR 582) provides that car dealers must give their customers specific information regarding how safe their products are on the road. As described by NHTSA, dealers must provide data regarding both damage susceptibility and crashworthiness for all their makes and models of passenger cars, sport utility vehicles, light trucks, and vans.

This information, placed in booklets, is great information for the consumer to have but depending upon the rating of the vehicle, it might not be so good for the dealer. If the potential vehicle has a good rating, dealers will be more willing to show the customer the pamphlet; however, if the vehicle has a poor rating, the pamphlet may be conveniently forgotten.

Dealer compliance isn't the issue here, but making sure consumers have the information they need regarding the cars they drive, or are thinking about driving, is very important to us.
