    Question Where can I find safety ratings for my van?

    I can not for the life of me find safety ratings on older vehicles, only new ones. Can someone please help me out?

    How old? IIHS has ratings going back more than 10 years.

    2002 isn't old at all. Enter your make & model, and they'll give you a list of years they tested. They didn't test every single vehicle, but if yours isn't listed, it's not because it's "too old."

    Also, go to http://www.safercar.gov/ (the NHTSA crash test site). They've got 27 minivans listed from 2002!
