"Do you look at the safety features in a car?"
Yes, along with the comfort, convenience, and looks of the car safety is also equally important. Here is some basic safety feature you can look at before purchasing a car in the 21st Century.
ABS with EBD:

A car without airbags is like riding a two-wheeler without a helmet. It is dangerous because, without fully operational airbags, the car safety features are down 50%.
The goal of the airbag is to provide crucial cushioning for people during a crash. There are normally 2 to 7 airbags in a ca depending on its model.
The seat belt reminder in a car is a must safety feature to be looked at as it helps you be safe. Also, airbags won’t operate if a driver is not wearing a seat belt properly.
