Tips For Choosing A Family Car

Louisville, KY (PRWEB) July 02, 2013

Choosing a car for the family can be difficult and expensive. Kentucky Accident Attorney Mike Schafer wants to help you make a good choice.

What to consider when buying a car
“This may sound cliché but safety should come first. When buying a car for the family, the most important factor to consider is not the color or style, but safety. You have to know if the car has the latest safety equipment such as state-of-the art side airbags and seat belts. It is also good to determine how good or bad did the car perform in crash tests,” Schafer pointed out.

Schafer said that buying a family car is a major decision and you have to make a good one. A family car is important to the daily lives of most working families – from sending children to school to going to the office, grocery shopping to traveling. “To help you decide which car to invest in, I encourage you to look at the recently released list by U.S. News. This list can guide you in choosing the vehicle that best satisfies your family’s needs,” Schafer said..

U.S. News top car list 2013
Every year, U.S. News recognizes the top ten best cars for families. For 2013, the Best Cars for Families include Chevrolet Cuze, Buick Verano, Toyota Prius, Ford Fusion, Acura TL, Buick LaCrosse, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Ford Fusion Hybrid and Subaru Outback. For Best SUVs and Minivans, U.S. News listed Honda CR-V, Audi Q5, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Chevrolet Traverse, Lexus RX 350, Lincoln MKT, Chevrolet Suburban, Cadillac Escalade, Toyota Highlander Hybrid and Honda Odyssey.

“Though Chevrolet Cruze is considered as compact, it is worth the buy for families. This compact car is well-equipped with standard features like 10 airbags, a USB port and Bluetooth. On the other hand, the 2013 Ford Fusion offers high-tech safety features such as a lane keeping alert system, forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control,” Schafer explained.
