Is it safe to drive a 15 year old car?
By Julie Power. NSW’s youngest and most at-risk drivers are continuing to drive vehicles older than 10 years, which tests have shown may quadruple their chances of being killed or seriously injured in a crash. Around 45 per cent of those who died were driving vehicles at least 15 years old.
Should you take your car on a road trip?
Your car’s not reliable. It’s barely fit to drive you to the end of the driveway; there’s no way it should be taken on a road trip. A rental car is far less likely to give you trouble on the road. Just know that the Rental Car Damage Protector does not cover the cost of towing or roadside assistance.
