    NZTA research has a different view. The least deprived (wealthiest) have 25% of 5 Star Safety rated cars and only 13% of the most deprived have a 5 star cart. (Which makes me wonder how they can afford such cars). The most deprived have 35% of unsafe cars (1 star safety rated) whereas the wealthier have 24% 1 star cars - which helps explain why they might be wealthy. (They value less depreciating assets over safety ratings). Pretty much 50% of wealthy and poor have 2 - 4 safety star cars.

    Plenty of quite well off people drive older cars (they generally have respect for their money)- and plenty of absolute losers drive poncey expensive cars, ticked up to the max. Surveys in the states show that the most popular choice in cars for financially independent people is a second hand Ford.
