While most people choose a car for functionality, looks, comfort, or some other features that satisfy their personal needs, we can't forget safety. It's essential to investigate the safety rating and history of a vehicle before spending your hard-earned money on it. The last thing you want to do is put yourself and your loved ones in harm's way by choosing a car that may look nice but isn't safe.

I can't lie, I was a bit surprised to see Kia at number one, especially after the whole "Kia Boys" TikTok mess. But, The Glass Doctor conducted this study using data from 2011 to 2020, so it wouldn't include any "Kia Boys" crashes.
