What is a good first car to buy for a teenager?
You can buy a pre-owned car. For your first experience it will be good choice. I’m now have Hyundai Accent 2014(I’m from USA, so i import it via https://clearitusa.com/ this customs broker service). I think it is good variant.
If you dont mind an older car, you can easily find a Honda Civic in that price range. It will be supremly reliable. Make sure you bring someone knowledgeable about cars with you (if you are not) to look at the car your buying. If you want something newer, look at domestic cars. Dodge Neon’s, Ford Focus, Ford Taurus, Chevrolet Cavalier, Pontiac Sunbird. Good luck with your automotive search!
