8 Safest New Cars for Young Drivers
When it comes to young drivers behind the wheel, safety is paramount. At the same time, there's also financial concerns to consider since younger drivers -- or their guardians -- may have a strict budget to abide by.
Consumer Reports recently compiled a list of vehicles they recommend for young drivers - all of which can be had for $30,000 or less. Vehicles on the list include the Mazda Mazda3, Subaru Forester and Toyota Camry.
When you're ready to purchase a new car, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see the best prices being offered in your local area.

Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
