The Ultimate BIG Gift This Time of Year


This time of year we spend a lot of time talking to family members in search of bows for cars that are giving a new car to sons, daughters or grandkids.  Whether it's for birthdays or graduations, seems that the ultimate BIG gift is one that is given frequently this time of year.  

Bows for Cars

Based on what we've seen, it seems that there's a fairly even split between cars that are new and cars that are new to the recipient.  We've even heard of some classic cars being redone by Dad so that the next generation can enjoy them!  Now that's a cool idea.

So we checked out a few vehicles to see which ones are getting the most thumbs up from the "experts" as being great used vehicles for new teen drivers.

Volkswagon - They made the grade for safest used cars with two of their vehicles.  Looks like the Volkswagen Jetta and the Rabbit/Golf come in at under $10,000 and get thumbs up ratings.

Ford - Not surprisingly, Ford hit the under $10,000 with a couple of their vehicles as well.  A used Ford Focus or Fusion could be picked up for between $6,000 - $8,000 and you can rest assured that the new driver will be safe!  What parent doesn't want to worry less?

Mazda - They also made the list with 2 vehicles as well.  Consumer Reports loved their Mazda6i and Mazda3 for the teens in your life.  

Toyota - No surprises that Toyota had some winners!  For those looking for the SUV style, the RAV4 came on the list.  My sister has that car and loves it.

Chevrolet - The Chevy Malibu is a US manufactured vehicle and can be purchased for under $10,000. This car definitely hits the mark for keeping your kids safe and is one that you might want to consider.

Hyundai - This company comes in to the top options with the Hyundai Sonata.  It also can be purchase for under $7500 which is a great deal.  When I was looking at vehicles for myself, this one was a contender.  Comes with a lot of what other companies consider "options" as part of a standard package.

There's a lot of affordable options with this list of cars it seems!  If you are considering a used car, let us know which ones of these you like best?  

And don't forget!  Once you do make that purchase, check back with us on our bows for cars to add the PERFECT finishing touch to your gift ~
