This new life-saving technology is known in the industry as (ADAS) or Advanced Driver Assistance Systems."
New car dealers are offering the upgrades on their top-of-the-line luxury cars for between 5 - $10,000. Dealerships are pricing the middle-class, middle-of-the-road-class ADAS upgrades for a good deal less at $3,500 up to $7,500. Most of the economy class cars don't yet offer the advanced safety features - and don't plan to for another year or two.
When searching for the absolute-best deal on a car this Labor Day Weekend - The most important thing to remember about ADAS technology is simple:
The latest in ADAS, Accident Avoidance or Collision Avoidance Systems are not only much less expensive in stores that specialize in them, but the aftermarket product is fully upgradeable. The product being sold in dealerships are not, most of the time. When a new vehicle is sold by a dealership with ADAS installed the technology is frozen in time so to speak. Once it's embedded in the new vehicle it loses its ability to be upgraded.
Dealerships have no incentive to upgrade the ADAS devices installed in their vehicles. They encourage their customers to purchase a new vehicle every year so the ADAS upgrades simply come equipped in the new vehicles. One final consideration concerning ADAS tech - And that's the car's resale value. Cars with upgradeable ADAS tech have much higher resale value. As the technology improves, specialty stores like "AmeriCam ATLANTA" upgrade the systems they previously sold for nominal fees. Evidently, thats how they keep their doors open. And with each new advancement in technology vehicle safety is advanced as well. This is exactly why vehicles with upgradeable technology have much higher resale values.
