Buying a secondhand car may be a sensible budget choice, but Kiwis should make sure they're not sacrificing safety for a cheap option. 

Monash University Accident Research Centre has released its annual used car safety ratings of 389 popular models, from light cars to SUVs.

The ratings are based on records from more than 8 million vehicles in road crashes and more than 2 million injured road users across New Zealand and Australia between 1987 and 2017.

AA Motoring Advisor Cade Wilson told Simon and Phil you should go for the safest vehicle you can afford.
