Your teen's first car needs to be the safest you can find and fit into your budget. Our team at Philpott Pre-Owned Super Center has a few facts to share with you to help you make a selection.

Most teens want a fast, sporty car. Bigger cars with more weight are safer choices for a first vehicle. Insurance company data shows teens are less likely to crash a heavier car. Bigger cars tend to offer more protection for their occupants in the event of a collision. Select a car that doesn't have a powerful engine. A car with an average engine removes the temptation to test different speeds.

Your teen's first car should have the best safety ratings available you can afford. Know all the IIHS and NHTSA safety ratings of your car before you buy it and check for any recalls.
