IIHS Names 3 Chevrolets to Recommended Used Vehicles for Teens

IIHS Names 3 Chevrolets to Recommended Used Vehicles for Teens
BAY CITY, Mich. – A recent survey of parents by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety revealed that many teens drive older vehicles and more than half of the parent's young drivers drove a vehicle that was a 2006 model year or earlier. You're probably thinking what's the big deal about teenagers driving used cars? Well, many of those vehicles lack the important safety features and technologies that work to keep us, and especially new drivers, safe.

Worry not! For the first time ever, the IIHS released their Recommended Used Vehicles for Teen Drivers, and included three Chevrolets! Making the IIHS' Best Choices (under $20,000) list, the Chevy Malibu, Chevy Equinox, and Chevy Traverse all earned Good ratings in the IIHS moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests; at least four out of five stars in federal government crash tests; and offer standard stability control to help avoid rollover crashes. So if your young driver is hitting the road soon and a brand new vehicle isn't realistic, check out these three Chevrolets on IIHS' List of Recommended Used Vehicles for Teens.

However, while a safe vehicle can help to protect your child, another important factor to remember when they get behind the wheel is behavior. A $2-million GM Foundation grant funded a recent Safe Kids Worldwide report which revealed some shocking statistics. It was found that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death to teens between the ages of 13 and 19, and of those who died, half were not wearing their seat belts!
