    This is a false analogy. Perhaps you mean to rephrase such as:

    "If you drive a car *with a malfunction*, you might end up in a car
    crash *caused by that malfunction*."

    Any car carries the possibility of being in a car crash. The elements
    beyond your control are what increase or decrease the probability of
    your car crash.

    Such as:

    "By switching to another car, without the same, or with a lesser,
    malfunction, you reduce the chances of having a car crashed by that
    malfunction"
