As new drivers hit the roads every year with their shiny new licenses in their wallets, many are left perusing used-car dealerships looking for a ride to call their own. For their parents, this may mean helping their son or daughter shop for a safe, affordable auto that will keep insurance premiums as low as possible.
Auto financing from Home Loan Investment Bank, combined with a smart vehicle purchase could get a teen on the road. Here are two used cars to check out:
1. Honda Accord. This high-quality sedan has gained the respect of consumers and auto experts over the past two decades. The car’s reliability and safety features make it a good fit for first-time car owners who are often unable to pay for sudden repairs. In addition, the auto’s excellent gas mileage makes it an exceptional deal, according to Edmunds.
2. Toyota Camry. The 2004 and 2009 Toyota Camry are top safety picks for auto experts, Aol Autos reports. With an 11 percent rollover rate, five-star front driver crash rating and other top-notch features, it is an ideal car for a first-time driver. Additional perks include decent gas mileage and smooth maneuvering.
