The article at the source noted below, states that if you drive any of 3 makes, you are more likely to cause a fatal accident!!! And one of the 3 brands is Oldsmobile, according to the gibberish proclaimed in that article. (The other 2 are Mercury and Porsche.) I don't know about Mercury & Porsche, but I simply don't believe that if you drive an Oldsmobile, you're a deadly driver!!!!!......that is one of the dumbest things I've ever read!!!!
Well Marc, at least Oldsmobile is still talked about, but remember if the website does not have a: "edu", or "org" at the end the source is not legitimate. Most of our research for education and medical papers we usually use the 2 websites mentioned above and even for journal articles to cite and given the correct information.

I think this article has to say only one main car is Honda civic at list in NJ and NY people who drive civics cant drive at all . 90% of them drive with high beams on. They always ignore yield sign. They ether drive very slow on left lane on highway or speeding of of their mind.

I wouldn't put much stock into "value penguin.com" whom conducted the survey. But I will say this. The two age groups of people that will most likely be driving Olds and Mercury would be the very young driver (buying old and cheap cars for their first car) and the very old driver (ones that bought them when the brand was still around), both of which cause more fatal accidents according to this older study by the NHTSA.
"Among females, the over-65 age group had the highest number of fatalities followed by the 16-to-20 age group. Among males, the age groups 16 to 20, 21 to 25, and over 65 had more crash fatalities than other age groups"
Then factor in the expanded use of cell phones while driving, especially in the younger group, since 2006 when the study was conducted.
So there definitely could be a correlation and some truth to the article.
