which car do you think would be safer for our daughter....a 1994 Land Rover or a 1999 Honda Civic? Both are about the same price and mileage. Thanks so much!!

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd A Land Rover is much larger then a Honda Civic. Some would think this safer. But 1994 means that it is over 13 years old. The Honda Civic is a great car. It gets great ratings on safety, and reliability. And the one you are look at is 5 years newer then the Land Rover. BUT, you need to have the vehicle you choose inspected by a trained automotive technician. It could look great on the outside and turn out to be a in really lousy shape. Make sure you do your research ahead of time before you make any decisions. All My Best, Amy Mattinat

Marnie Kramer, Owner and Creator at EverythingCarz.com Dear Lisa, Thank you for visiting AskPatty.com. The Civic actually had relatively high safety ratings...and depending on which Land Rover you are looking at the Discovery or the Range Rover, both did okay on safety ratings. There a couple things that you should keep in mind when making a decision. 1. Land Rovers are a larger vehicle and traditionally large vehicles hold up better when entangled with another large vehicle. 2. SUV
