What was your first car? Whether it was a beat-up old rust-bucket or an object of envy for your whole high school parking lot, we bet you’ve got fond memories. Getting your first set of wheels is a modern-day rite of passage, a teenager’s first step toward independence. Driving the right car makes you cool. As a parent, the decision looks a little different. While it’d be nice to see your kid driving a car they love, you also want them to make a practical choice. Above all, you want your teen driver to stay safe. It can be hard to agree on a car that checks all these boxes, but Continental Honda is here to help! Here’s why certified pre-owned Hondas are some of the best used cars for teen drivers in Chicago.

A Used Car That Lasts

Reliability is always important, but it’s especially important when you’re choosing a first car. Ideally, your teen driver’s first car will last them all the way through college with minimal problems. When you choose a Honda Certified pre-owned car, you’re getting a late-model used car that’s been exhaustively inspected and restored to like-new condition. You’re also getting one of the best used car warranties in the business – 7-year or 100,000-mile powertrain coverage, plus 12-month, 12,000-mile coverage on everything else. Even older Honda cars have a long-standing reputation for reliability – whatever your budget is like, a used Honda will serve your teenage driver well for years to come.

Safe Cars For New Drivers

Finding a good first car can be a bit of a balancing act – you want a car that’s affordable, but you also want as much modern safety equipment as possible. Fortunately, used Hondas excel on safety too. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety keeps a list of the best used cars for teen drivers, based on crash test scores. Used Honda Accord, Honda CR-VHonda Pilot, and Honda Odyssey models all topped the rankings.

The IIHS also recommends getting your teen driver a car with electronic stability control. Next to anti-lock brakes, this is one of the most important safety features for a new driver. ESC wasn’t required on all new cars until 2012, so it’s not a guarantee when you’re shopping used. But it’s been standard on every Honda SUV since 2007, and every Honda Accord since 2008. Once again, Honda has you covered!
