    Essential Safety Features to Look for In Your Next Used DFW Luxury Car

    Last updated 9 months ago

    When you decide to buy a luxury used car from Texas Cars Direct of DFW, you will get a vehicle with thrilling performance, timeless design, advanced technologies and amenities, and also some of the most cutting-edge safety features. Even luxury cars that are a few years old often come with safety features that are just beginning to be offered in new economy cars. While the advanced safety features available in a luxury used car may vary depending on the make and model, there are some essential safety features that you must absolutely insist on. These include:

    Air Bags

    Depending on the speed at impact and the size and weight of the object struck, front air bags inflate to prevent occupants from hitting the dashboard, steering wheel, and windshield. Air bags can drastically reduce the potential for serious injury in the event of an accident, especially high-speed and head-on collisions. While all used cars come with air bags, luxury used cars often come with multiple airbags in addition to those in the steering wheel and dashboard for added protection.

    Antilock Brake System

    An antilock brake system (ABS) prevents a vehicle’s wheels from locking up during emergency braking, which gives the driver greater steering control. All passenger cars are either equipped with two-wheel or four-wheel ABS. Some luxury used cars also include brake assist in addition to ABS, which senses emergency braking to activate the ABS more quickly and easily compared to vehicles without brake assist.

    Traction Control/Stability Control

    Traction and stability control systems are designed to improve vehicle stability, especially during extreme steering maneuvers. Traction control adjusts engine power output and may even apply braking force to selected wheels to keep the vehicle’s tires firmly planted on the pavement. Electronic stability control, on the other hand, automatically applied the brake to correct oversteer or understeer.
