As a parent, you only want what’s best for your teen, and after years of trying to convince you that he can be a responsible driver, you finally yield and agree to buy him his first car. It can be really emotional and downright scary, but your baby’s grown up. Whether you like it or not, you need to grant him independence and letting him drive on his own is a good way to teach him the value of responsibility.

Since it’s your teen’s first exposure to the world of automobile, it’s better to just opt for a used car. He can purchase a new one when he has saved enough money in the future. A used car is functional, effective and if purchased in good condition, shouldn’t feel pre-owned at all. The best advantage is that you can buy it at a low bargain price.

By this time, you already have an idea of the car that you will purchase. You’ve got a trusted dealer and the best price, now it’s time for the used car’s evaluation and test drive. The safety feature is the most important of all, as it will assure you that your teen will have a safe journey while driving on the road. Here are the safety features you need to check before buying:

Braking Systems

Braking pads are critical for safety, as it’s the main device that will stop collision and other road accidents from happening. You and your teen must check if all the braking systems are working properly because the last thing you need is to end up with a car that is an accident waiting to happen.

Car Tires

According to a used cars Pickering dealer, the quality of the tires must be in good condition when you purchase a vehicle. It must be just as good as the brake system because you want to get the best value for your money and you wouldn’t want to spend for a new tire so soon after you bought the car.

Traction Control

This safety feature is designed to prevent loss of traction on the road, especially during instances of harsh weather like snow, rain and hail storms. A used cars Whitby dealer recommends that you do a thorough check of the traction control system when you test drive to make sure that everything is in working order.

Seatbelts, Airbags, Head Restraints

A used cars Whitby auto dealer will ensure that these safety features are properly installed in your teen’s car so that they will be protected against incurring serious injuries in the event of an accident. Visit car-safety.org for more info about important safety features of a used car.
