Most people are unaware that many of the safety features in their vehicle are designed and built right into the body or frame. Crash test results are based on the size, body shape and structure of the vehicle. These three factors are an important part of framing the car and protecting the individuals inside. The vehicle safety is directly related to the design and build of its frame.
When a vehicle experiences a collision the structural damage is often hidden beneath paneling and the body shape. Twisted, bent and even crumbled framing can take place in an accident. Frame straightening is so important after any collision that has compromised the framing on your vehicle, because it can result in serious injury in any future accidents.
There are two vehicle designs. The unibody design is built with all of the components remaining inside the body of the vehicle. The unibody design is seen in most vans and cars. It can also be seen in some SUV crossovers. The frame design has the body component of the vehicle seated on a frame. Most trucks and larger SUVs are designed using a frame.
Vehicles that are built with a frame design had increased strength. Regardless of the unibody or frame design, both the vehicle's body and frame offer the best protection for individuals involved in a collision. If either the frame or body structure is damaged, individuals may experience serious injuries in any future collision.
If the structure has been compromised, the suspension and mechanical assemblies will not function properly. This could place excess strain in the engine, cause a uneven wear on the tires and affect vehicle and handling control.
