Choosing Your Teen's First Car
Whether it's a moment you've been dreading or anticipating, the day your teen gets their license is finally here. Now it's time to find them the right car so they can drive themselves to school or work.
It's best to avoid a car that boasts about its high horsepower or its quick acceleration. New drivers lack the finesse to gauge how fast they're going by feel alone and can often exceed the speed limit without meaning to do so. A solidly built larger vehicle whose engine isn't as responsive actually makes the perfect first car, and they often offer a range of safety features that assist new drivers who lack certain skills, such as driving on slippery surfaces.
