Crash test ratings. Rollover statistics. Air bags. All of these factors play a role in your new or used vehicle purchase decision. After all, it transports your most precious cargo. Safety is a large part of the emotional process that goes into purchasing a vehicle. Sometimes, we even pay more because of the available safety features. That's why companies like Ownersite Technologies are developing web-based solutions, such as Ownersite.com, that focus on safety through automated maintenance reminders, an expense tracking system, and recall notifications posted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Recent media reports clearly indicate that there is an incredible opportunity for Ownersite.com to help you maximize your vehicle's safety. Rollovers and unheeded safety recalls have significantly increased road accident and death rates. You may not realize that manufacturers are responsible for recall work regardless of whether the car is new, used, or under warranty. Of concern is the fact that NHTSA reports that more than 28% of all manufacturer recalls go unperformed each year. In 2003, this represented nearly 5 million vehicles.

Many manufacturers have also come under fire for poor equipment and quality standards. However, numerous SUV rollovers were ultimately related to under-inflated tires, pointing to the importance of proper vehicle maintenance. As a consumer, you have a right to be worried, but you also must be responsible for taking care of the investment that you make in the vehicle as well as in your family. This means taking a proactive approach rather than waiting until it is too late. Today, technology is making it a bit easier for you to pay attention to the little things that make all the difference in your car's performance and safety standards. Think about the benefits of a service like what Ownersite.com offers.
You may have received a safety recall in the mail and simply tossed it out, thinking it is not that important. Some of you might be the fourth owner of the vehicle and did not receive the recall information because the manufacturer cannot private party sales. By having an Ownersite.com subscription, you can find out if there are recalls that you otherwise may never have known about.
Then, there is the all important issue of taking care of "your baby." Months may have gone by without checking tire pressure. Your child in college is too busy to realize that they probably should have taken their car in for a tune-up about six months ago.
As long as it still can leave the driveway and get you where you need to go, your vehicle is fine right? Wrong! You compromise your safety and that of your family. Ownersite.com sends you service reminders for just about anything - tire rotations, air pressure checks, oil changes, etc. You are on your own, however, when it comes to washing and waxing.
Ownersite Technologies provides a cost-effective alternative solution for tracking maintenance and safety. Incredibly, the cost of this important protection could cost you less than fifty cents per month for each of your family vehicles. Up to four vehicles can be included when you sign up for this economical service, providing the peace of mind and comfort that you are doing everything you can to maintain your family's safety on the road.
