Choose from Used Cars in St. Charles for Your Graduate

Used Cars in St. Charles

It’s that time of year when high school graduations become the focus of many families. In conjunction with this rite of ceremony comes the likelihood that graduates you know will be travelling to college. Your teenager will need one of the numerous used cars in St. Charles. What a great graduation present! The IIHS (Institute for Highway Safety) shows that when parents who opt to purchase a vehicle for their graduate, that 83% choose pre-owned. Statistically, used cars are both dependable and affordable.

IIHS believes that there are 4 standard rules that must be applied to young drivers. They include: inclusion of electronic stability control, a NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) rating that is high, avoiding vehicles with high horsepower and not purchasing sports cars. Checking the VIN on a car also supplies essential information about recalls.

Is a car loan affordable? Most independent dealers are happy to provide financing for a variety of financial situations.

Your teen will likely not want one of the many pre-owned mini-vans for sale. Other options for teenagers that cost less than $20k are:

  • Trucks such as the 2014 and later Toyota Tundra extended cab
  • Small SUVS like the 2015 and later Chevy Trax or 2014 and newer Mitsubishi Outlander
  • Mid-size SUVs like the 2005 and later Volvo XC90 or a 2010 and later Ford Flex
  • Mid-size autos such as the 2013 and later Nissan Altima sedan or the 2011 and later Kia Optima
  • Large cars such as the 2007 and newer Volvo S80 and 2015 and later Toyota Avalon.
