Find the Right Vehicle for You

SMART FEATURES FOR OLDER DRIVERS

AAA-Smart-Features-Brochure-ButtonA vehicle is one of the largest purchases a person makes, and it is critical to find the right one for you. To help older drivers know what to look for in a vehicle, AAA worked with the University of Florida Institute for Mobility, Activity, and Participation to help identify smart features for older drivers (SFOD) to optimize their comfort and safety. Use the tool at the bottom of the page to explore these smart features.

Our expert team recommends you consider the following factors when choosing the right vehicle:

  • Safety features, such as seat belts and the positions and types of airbags.
  • Ergonomics, or design features, that reduce operator fatigue and discomfort, such as adjustable pedals and seats.
  • Comfort, such as ease of entry and exit, legroom and size of control buttons.
  • Value, which incorporates the total cost of ownership including price, operating and maintenance costs, as well as reliability, fuel economy and resale value.
