PWN3D The 10 Deadliest Vehicles on the Road

The 10 Deadliest Vehicles on the Road

Eric Schaal
December 15, 2013


"from model years 2005 through 2008"

Quote:
It takes years for the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) to compile and organize the statistics for crash deaths and the vehicles in which drivers met their end. However, the latest report tracked model-year automobiles up to 2008, allowing the IIHS to deliver stats that included traffic accident data through 2009 .

The auto safety agency ran the numbers on all vehicles with 100,000 registrations or more between 2006 and 2009, counting only the deaths of the driver (not passengers) in their statistics. In the end, the IIHS calculated a ratio of “driver death per million registered vehicles.” Needless to say, drivers shopping for used vehicles more than four years old would be advised to check the list. Here are the 10 vehicles that involved the highest number of deaths per million registrations.
10. Chevy Colorado Extended Cab
9. Nissan Versa Sedan
8. Hyundai Tiburon
7. Chevy Malibu/Chevy Malibu Classic
6. Kia Spectra Wagon
5. Nissan Titan Extended Cab
4. Chevy Cobalt
3. Chevy Aveo
2. Nissan Titan Crew Cab
1. Nissan 350Z



Quote:
Chevrolet and Nissan were producing the vehicles involving the highest ratio of driver deaths for a span of four years, with Hyundai and Kia making up the balance. In the course of used car shopping, check the IIHS stats to ensure the safety record of any vehicle.

Why list the Titan twice? Just combine the two, make it #1 and add a new #10 to the list.
They didn't separate the Malibu and Malibu classic.

I'm surprised the Wrangler didn't make the list. I love it's attitude and dreamed of owning one as a kid, but they just seem like a death trip on highways.

Wrangler drivers don't speed as much due to the box shape (and low power until 2012) and with no roof or doors you see everything around you.

Does this stat say more about the 350Z or the demographic that drives them?

The Nissan Versa is a terrible car. Nobody should ever buy one. You know a car is bad when Car & Drivers lone positive comment in their Highs/Lows is "Highs: It's not a used car".

I don't understand why people still buy Nissan in this day and age. Ancient engines, mediocre fit and finish and plain old mediocre vehicles.

Boring list.

Old school Viper?
Porsche GT2 and RS version of it?
MR2 turbo?
Carrera GT?

Those are all widowmakers.

I would think this list would be all motorcycles since they said "vehicles." Probably not many models with 100,000 registrations though.

This 2013 blog post in the OP just rehashes the same crap that I covered in 2011 (2005-2008 IIHS data, in particular):

I don't see any way to separate out these two factors.
In this case the drivers' behavior confounds the answers unless these cars were randomly assigned to random drivers as the control group [vs. the experimental group which has drivers picking their preferred cars].

France. Nissan went full derp when they merged with Renault. Since then the cars have looked like French cars and fallen apart like French cars.

One of my 16 year old friends rolled his 1st car, a 350z. Then his parents bought him another one. This study makes me laugh.

Locally, we had a drunk in a Grand Prix driving down the wrong side of the interstate hit an Aveo head on and kill three of the four occupants. The drunk wasn't even injured while the Aveo was almost unrecognizable as a car. Yeesh.

Uh, these data were from model year 2005-2008 vehicles. Camaros were made until 2002 and then from 2010-onward.
