No matter how skilled a driver you are or how many of the Sunshine Coast 4WD tracks you've conquered, there are always going to be unpredictable circumstances and drivers. The best you can do to prepare is to make sure your car is up to standard in the unfortunate event that an accident does occur. The good news is that new cars are fitted with more intelligent safety features than ever before and like you can see from information above, there isn't much your favourite utes don't have.
