Safest used cars for young drivers

Many Utah parents look for used cars for their teen to save money. You may not be looking for the most attractive car, or the most high-tech, but Utah parents should definitely look for the safest used cars for your teen. Look for vehicles with safety features, such as electronic stability control, curtain airbags, good crash test ratings, and don’t even consider a car without anti-lock brakes. Consumer Reports has compiled a list of different vehicles that meet their criteria for being safe and reliable.
