If your teenager has recently received his or her driver’s license, you may be concerned about the safety of the vehicle they will be driving. There are several critical vehicle options that a teen’s vehicle should possess.
Consider purchasing a vehicle that has Electronic Stability Control, a computer system that helps prevent the vehicle from spinning out of control or sliding off the road. Vehicles made after 2012 should also feature anti-lock brakes, advanced head restraints, and modern crash structures. Vehicles made before 2012 can also have some desirable safety features, such as dual front airbags and side-impact structure.
In addition to the main “safety system” of the vehicle, car purchasers should also ensure that the vehicle is well maintained. Tire pressure should be checked at least once per month and the car must be inspected by a professional each year to ensure that it’s running properly. Replacing old tires on an aged vehicle can also boost the safety of the vehicle.
