Cars and Trucks Under $1000

by Severica Vintila

In this day and age, who isn't concerned about car safety. Why, it seems that every day, you read about a new terrible and tragic car accident on the roadways, which is enough to practically make you want to become a hermit. No matter how much attention you put into car safety, it never seems like enough, as the safest drivers in the safest cars still sometimes get struck by a tragic fate.

If you own an alternator testing machine, you can test to see whether your car's alternator is charging correctly. For most people this isn't practical as few motorists own such an expensive piece of equipment.

One of the best things you can do to help increase your automotive safety is to learn defensive driving. A lot of defensive driving is really a matter of common sense and courtesy, nonetheless courses can be taken to improve your driving skills.

Although a car with a good automotive safety rating is a great investment, it is a moot point if you can manage to avoid having a collision to begin with.

Unfortunately, no mater how safe your driving, we all know that sometimes, through someone else's carelessness, or through bad luck, accidents can still happen. That is why car safety means, above all, having a safe car. There are many excellent resources which will rank car safety in the most popular model.

My favorite of these is consumer reports, which shows NHTSA crash ratings for all of the leading cars, and gives you an overall breakdown of car safety, value, and customer satisfaction.

If you decide to do the work yourself, do you have all the tools on hand to get the work done? Do you own a repair manual? Do you want to purchase a new alternator or will a remanufactured unit suffice?

Look up similar vehicles on eBay to see the starting bids and final price. Local dealer websites may be helpful as well. You can get a good idea of what similar vehicles are selling for retail that way.

Don't put off that oil change and risk having that engine seize up on you! Above all, your car safety is your safety, so don't put your life on the line just because you haven't gotten around to getting those necessary services for your car!
