All parents want the best for their children. Once they become a teen driver, you want them to be safe and protected while driving out in the world.
When buying a car, you'll want to ensure you get all the latest safety technology to protect your teen driver, but for most parents, buying a new car for their teenager is out of reach.
There are many used cars, much more affordable, that come equipped with some of the most important safety features to protect your teen.
Consumer Reports did a study on what's the most essential safety options considered on a vehicle. Once they completed the study, they compiled the below list to help you find a safe and reliable vehicle to protect your teen.
Instead of letting your teen driver borrow your car this weekend, give yourself peace of mind knowing they're driving one of the recommended vehicles off this list.
