Picking the right car is more important to a typical teenager than passing junior year, but there are some cars your teen should avoid. Teens see a car as an extension of their personality, level of cool, and ultimately the greatest commodity of all: popularity.
But not you. You’re coming at this from a different angle.
Statistics show your teen is four times more likely to have an accident than older drivers – making it pricey to add them to your policy, and reminding you to focus on finding the safest car possible.
There are so many options, it is hard to narrow your list. The best way to begin is through the process of elimination.
Here’s a list of cars to avoid if you’re looking to save on insurance rates. They rated the highest risk across all insurance loss categories with the Highway Loss Data Institute:
