Just about every teenager is not-so-patiently waiting to get their first car. Buying a vehicle for a teen is scary, though. Without years of driving experience under their belt, it’s of the upmost importance to find a safe, reliable car for your teen. Plus, you don’t want to spend too much money, since less experienced drivers are more likely to get into a fender bender. Follow these tips when searching for a car for your new driver.
The safest types of cars are mid-size sedans, since they offer the most protection in a crash with the smallest risk of rollover.
Go price shopping on websites like Edmunds and Kelley Blue Book so that you know what a fair price is for whatever vehicle you have your eye on.
Always choose a car that has a minimum of six airbags.
This is extra important if you’re purchasing an SUV or another type of high-sitting vehicle.

For a brand new driver, have them stick to the backroads, then take it for a spin yourself on the highway and around a couple of challenging curves.
