What cars are fitted with curtain airbags - you want to protect your family as best possible against 4 by 4s?
Lots of 2003-2005 cars have them. I own a 2004 Honda Accord EX V6. It has 6 airbags, Dash, side, and curtain. You will just need to do some research on the specifications of prospective cars. www.msncars.com or www.edmunds.com are two sources. Of course the manufactures web site is also a good place to look. There is more to it than just side airbags. Also look at side impact scores of vehicles tested and how they faired. www.nhtsa.gov
