When your teenager reaches driving age, you probably have mixed emotions. You feel proud that they are gaining some independence, yet also scared out of your mind that they are gaining some independence. If you are considering buying a car for your teen so you can be less of a chauffeur, you don’t want to spend a fortune, but you also want to make sure it is safe.
