MileOne Auto Group shares advice about picking a car for a teenager

MileOne Auto Group offers a number of tips on its website to help you pick out the ideal car for your teenager, whether looking for a new or pre-owned vehicle.

Talk to the teenager about the car-selection process and assure them they will be allowed to help pick a vehicle but that you will make the ultimate decision.

Safety is the most important part of the process. Look for cars that have at least six airbags, plus anti-lock brakes and traction or stability control.

Test drive a vehicle once you've determined it may be a good choice. Ask the sales representative if the teen can drive the car; if not, the teen can ride along as you drive. Even if the teen is not allowed to take the car for a test drive, they should sit in the driver's seat to make sure the vehicle feels comfortable and offers good visibility.

Minor cosmetic issues on a vehicle shouldn't be a deal breaker. The teen may be adding more dings to the car, so functionality is more important than the car's beauty, the posting said.
