8 Safest New Cars for Young Drivers

March 5, 2015

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.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
