2017 Chevy Volt which has a 4.5 out of 5 rating on Edmunds and Car & Driver. And a 7.3 out of 10 @ the Car Connection.

With car accidents being one of the top five causes of death in the United States, it is easy to see why it’s a good idea to invest in a vehicle that has high safety ratings. And if you ever do suspect your vehicle of having any unsafe or defective parts or are involved in an accident due to no fault of your own, make sure to promptly seek legal advice. “Most personal injury lawyers will offer some type of free consultation or case evaluation and if you ask the right questions, you will know what they expect as payment and what type of experience they bring to the table” says houston-accidentattorney.com.
