Frequently asked questions

Frequently asked questions – You ask, we answer

Question: Is ABS the best on all surfaces?
Answer: In principle, yes. Only on loose gravel and in some cases on loose snow and very, very slippery ice ABS can mean a longer breaking distance. However, the maneuverability is still superior with ABS.

Question: I have heard so much negative on the airbags, is it a safe and reliable solution?
Answer: With less than half the number of injuries to faces and chests since the airbag was introduced, our conviction is that it stands for significantly increased safety, provided that seat belts are used.

Question: What are the most common causes of sudden aquaplaning?
Answer: Too high speed, tires of poor condition, wrong tire dimensions (too wide for the car) or a road surface with too much wear and tracks.

Question: Is it safe to let my children travel in the front seat?
Answer: Wait as long as possible before letting the children travel in the front seat. The back seat is safer for children on frontal collisions. 140cm of height and 40 kg’s is a common measure.

Question: What is your best advice for us motorists?
Answer: Dare to reduce speed, keep the distance to traffic in front of you and make sure to think before you act.

Question: What are your opinions on the lights of the car?
Answer: More light gives more time to react as dangers can be detected earlier. Take a step back on the esthetics and attach extra lights if you use the full beam frequently.

Question: Are not the risks of driving and talking in cellular phones greatly exaggerated?

Question: Can safer driving lead to a better economy?
Answer: A well planned journey without stress, with few stops and a more committed driver can result in a 8-15% more efficient journey – without losing time.
