The Safest Used Cars for Teen Drivers

The day you hand the keys over to your teenager for the first time is sure to be one of the most nerve-wracking days of your life. However, you can rest easier knowing that your teen is cruising around Richmond, New Baltimore, and Detroit in the safest used car around. We have plenty of exceptionally safe used cars in our inventory here at Dick Huvaere’s Richmond Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. But these are a few of our favorites.

The Jeep Cherokee

In an area like this, we tend to get some rough weather in the winter. Which means that a small SUV is a great choice for your teen’s safety.

The Jeep Cherokee is by far one of our favorite SUVs. In addition to featuring those standard Jeep off-roading qualities, it’s also built with a high-strength steel safety frame and ten advanced airbags. Of course, handling features like the available Selec-Terrain™ system should keep your teen safely on track and out of harm’s way.

The Chrysler 200

If you’d prefer a smaller car for your teen, a sedan may be a better option. And we have a number of Chrysler 200 models that would make an excellent choice.

One of the big benefits of choosing a vehicle as luxurious as a Chrysler is that it’s bound to have great technology features available. For instance, in this car you’ll have the ParkView® rearview camera in addition to some available collision-predicting gadgets.

The Dodge Journey

Like Jeep, all Dodge vehicles are built for rugged adventures. This means that they really retain their value and efficacy, even if they have a few years of wear on them. For your teen’s safety, they’ll have the standard Dodge Journey advanced brake system on their side.

This includes four-wheel disc antilock brakes, electronic brakeforce distribution, and brake assist. Electronic Stability Control will then complete this precise array.

The Ram 1500

Trucks seem to be all the rage these days, even among teenage drivers. They love to know that they have a powerful engine at their disposal. Still, you can feel at ease knowing that they have an exceptional drivetrain with great traction, too.

The Ram 1500 is known for its ability to handle a wide range of road conditions, including slippery or loose roads. With the available 4×4 system equipped (as well as a fair amount of caution), your teen can breeze through all sorts of weather conditions.

The Ram 1500 is not just one of the safest vehicles, but it’s one of the top pick-ups in its class. Find out why in its complete car review.
