Dodge is most dangerous car in Nevada

Buckle up, and get in – I’m going to take you on a drive to find out the safest, and most dangerous car brand in Nevada. 

More Cars On Las Vegas Roads:

Nevada –Las Vegas in particular – has always been a tourist destination, and in the last few decades it  has grown as a residential destination.

With new stadiums being built every few years to accommodate new teams putting on “Las Vegas” uniforms, new Sphere‘s, and entertainment venues going up on every corner, and California neighbors selling their homes, and becoming new residents of the Silver State, Las Vegas is (still) one of the fastest growing cities in the country.

Car safety is a big priority for many drivers, and with good reason, especially in Las Vegas. Choosing a car that has great safety features can give you peace of mind and potentially save lives in the event of an accident – which there are far too many of in Las Vegas. 

Picking A Safe Car In Las Vegas:

But with so many car brands and models on the market, how can you know which ones are the safest?

In a comprehensive study by Glass Doctor, they analyzed the top three car brands in each state that reported the most fatal car crashes over a decade. Using this information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the researchers were able to determine which brands were among the safest.

According to the data, Audi is the top safest car brand, with only 0.54 fatal crashes per 1,000 drivers over the decade. This title is well-earned, since Audi has made significant investments in safety technology, research, and development, including developing new safety systems that use sensors and cameras to detect and prevent accidents.

Subaru and Mercedes-Benz also ranked high, with 0.55 and 0.75 fatal crashes per 1,000 drivers, respectively. This goes along with Subaru’s six recent IIHS top-pick safety awards. Mercedes-Benz has a reputation for luxury, but their vehicles are also known for their safety features, including advanced driver assistance systems and collision prevention technology.

Most Dangerous Car In The US:

According to the Glass Door study, Dodge has the most fatal crashes of any other car brand in most (64%) U.S. states. Ouch!

  • AUDI

    Since the 1930s, Audi has been crash-testing their cars to ensure that they are as safe as possible in the event of an accident. Their SUV is one of the largest on the market. Many surveys call out Audi DRIVERS as some of the worst, so at least their CAR is safe!
