Report from The Insurance Institute For Highway Safety,

Driver death rates by model, A rating of 100 is average, LOWER numbers indicate vehicles that are involved in Fewer Fatal accidents than average, while HIGHER numbers indicate involvement in MORE Fatal accidents. A rating of 25 for example represents a driver death rate of one fourth the average, while a rating of 295 is nearly three times the average.

Year Model Rating
1993-95 Cadillac Fleetwood = 32

1992-95 Cadillac Seville = 40

1994-95 Cadillac DeVille = 74

1992-95 Cadillac Eldorado = 87

Well.
I was doing a search on the 95 Fleetwood specs and that report was at the bottom of the page, so let me try and find some statistics for your cars, if i can i will post them in this section. :coffee:

Sometimes those crash tests can be warped...... My Q45 has REALLY low crash test ratings, but I heard a story where someone rolled his Q multiple times going 75 on the interstate, and walked away from the scene...... So their crash testabilty and real world safety can be significantly different.....

Some tests are based on mathematical equations and computer generated instances, not on real world crashes!!!!!

And when we are talking about big cars like cadillac, they are more likely to be safer than the tests say........

I heard on the news that bigger cars can also be good for multiple hits or accidents, like a chain-reaction on a freeway. A small car like a Honda Civic has a great rating, but I would only want to be hit once in it if the crumple zones are used up. :basketcas

Ill tell you one thing..... The infiniti Q45 has one of the worst safety ratings (the insurance is stupid), but I would rather be in one of those than in a mini cooper, which has a 4 or 5star rating!
