Buying a car for a teenage/new driver... just wanting to include safety precautions in the equation.
New driver? Buy something relatively large, safe, and slow. Traction control is completely useless if someone is driving around like a maniac. A 4 banger accord is an excellent first car. A subaru is nice as well if you want the security of AWD.
