Safety and Quality Matter More to Car Buyers than Product Color

Who would think, after watching all of the high-glamor television and Internet ads for new cars that safety matters more than paint color!

Maybe the sustainability message is getting through -- quality matters! Value matters -- and that's not just price. Performance matter. All those features are part of sustainable product design and service.

As the Federal Trade Commission looks at environmental claims in more depth, it's time to take a look at what truly is wanted in the marketplace -- and it looks like the safety and quality messages are gaining on the label of the day...like glamor or sexy style that's out of date in nine months.

Car Buyers Rank Safety and Quality High

A 2008 survey also revealed that car buyers consider safety and quality as the most important consideration, followed by value, performance, environmental friendliness, design, and technical innovation.

Here are the Top 10:

1 Toyota

2 Honda

3 Ford

4 Chevrolet

5 GMC

6 Lexus

7 Volvo

8 Mercedes-Benz

9 BMW

10 Cadillac
