» » » » Top 3 Best Used Cars for New Teen Drivers with $8,000 - $9,000 Budget



So what is the top priority for selecting the best car for your teen drivers?  That really depends on each family or parents. For some, price is not an issue, but we will focus on three criteria for the sake of our list: safety, reliability and cost (purchase, gas and maintenance).

However, your teenage kids probably do not want to be seen in a station wagon or cars from the 80s, so the style of the car is considered as an important factor as well.

#1 - 2006 Honda Accord (4-Cyl)

Your teen driver probably wouldn't complain to drive this nice looking car even in today's standards.  This model is highly rated for its reliability, safety and good gas mileage as a bonus at 24 mpg city and 34 mpg hwy.  Belonging to full size sedan category, the car is definitely safer than almost all compact size cars.

You should be able to get one right around $8,000 - $8,500.

#2 - 2006 Toyota Camry (4-Cyl)

This car is almost identical to the car above, 2006 Honda Accord, in almost every way except for the styling.    It is also one of the highest rated car for reliability and safety, and has 24/33 mpg.  The price for 4-Cyl version is also at $8,000 - $8,500.  Toyota Camry provide more comfortable and cushy rides compared to Honda Accord with a little more sporty handling and suspension.

#3 - 2006 Subaru Forester

This car is truly designed for young people as a target group with sporty rides with an excellent performance.  Subaru is renowned for building rock solid cars, and this car is no exception.  Since it is classified as compact SUV or sometimes wagon, it is much roomier than comparably sized sedan.

Because of its style and weight, it only gets 20/25 for city/hwy mpg.  It is actually not bad at all for an SUV from 2006.  The average market price is about $9,000.
