Driving is dangerous, but some cars can increase this danger, whether because of unsafe design or poor manufacturing. Life is full of dangerous things: sharp objects, diseases, Terminator, gravity, badgers. Make your choice.
It does not bother them to hurt you. Automakers, on the other hand, generally want you to be as safe as possible. After all, regular customers are good business. But all the same, sometimes it does not work that way.
It can be an engineering problem or a vehicle put on the market too early. Sometimes it’s a good idea presented to consumers before the time, and sometimes it’s just a bad idea. In other cases, the defect was simply due to sloppy construction and substandard materials.
Whatever the reasons, many vehicles could have advertised for the coffin industry.On this list, we will examine 15 dangerous vehicles that we can only advise against driving. Driving in either of these vehicles is no guarantee that things will go wrong, but all 15 have histories or tendencies that suggest they’re more dangerous than the average car.
This is another car that has been very popular throughout history. It has been around since the 50s and has a great reputation with Corvette-lovers. It still made the list of the most dangerous vehicles because of reckless driving. There is no debating that this is a sports car and its demographic is young males who like speed. As far as stats, this car has more than 5 fatalities per 10,000 cars—even higher than the Ford Mustang.
The size of a vehicle, as you’ll notice from perusing this list, has a lot to do with whether or not it’s safe. In the case of the Corvette, it’s a combination of size and speed — nobody buys one for slow Sunday drives along the countryside. In 1990, for example, a study showed that 5.2 drivers and passengers died in wrecks for every 10,000 1985-87 Corvettes registered in the United States. The death rates for other sports cars, such as the Chevy Camaro and Ford Mustang, have also been among the worst in recent decades.
