You want to buy a used car with a low amount of miles. But you need to be aware of the potential for odometer fraud, something that occurs more often with unlicensed dealers or private sellers.
“Odometer fraud is a situation in which a seller has intentionally taken miles off an odometer to increase the value of a vehicle,” said Inspector General Tom Clinkenbeard.

Late-model used cars offer a just-right combination of modest power and performance, top-notch crash scores, advanced safety features and decent reliability scores that safety experts say parents should seek in any car intended for a new driver.
Among the vehicles best suited for teen drivers: the Honda Accord (24 points,) the Ford Fusion (22 points) and the Toyota Camry (22 points).
You won't see pickups, sports cars, or tiny subcompacts on the list. Pickups are too easy to roll. Sports cars tempt young drivers to drive too fast. Subcompacts don't put enough metal between your kid and obstacles they may hit, even though today's small cars are dramatically better engineered than the tiny hatchbacks baby boomers drove in the '70s and '80s.
