As a responsible parent, of course, you want to make sure that your new teen driver is going to be in a vehicle that is safe and reliable. Your teen on the other hand likely has grandiose visions of being behind the wheel of a 2015 SS Camaro, an SRT Challenger or a GT Mustang.
There was a time when safety features of a car were an afterthought. Today’s automobiles come standard equipped with many car safety features that we do not even think about such as seat belts with shoulder harnesses, and airbags. New laws are coming on the books regarding rear facing cameras and other safety features that will improve our ability to operate our vehicles in a safe and effective manner. These laws are not retroactive though, so many cars are sitting on lots at this very moment that are not equipped with all the latest safety features.

Most people are not out buying cars because their bank account is overflowing (but if you have that problem, let me know!) We buy cars because we need them to get to work, to school, and to cart our kids around from practice to games, and those field trips to the zoo. A car is one of the most expensive purchases you will make. Getting the right car for your wants and needs takes time and effort.
When visiting a car dealer, you might hear the salesmen say a lot of things that you don’t totally get. Over the years, car salesmen have developed their own car sales lingo based on their experience with selling cars and interacting with customers. Not all phrases are things that pertain to customers.
