Conduct a thorough check of all the car’s safety features. Make sure this make of car has been tested in a crash to see how it can withstand the impact. You should also ensure that it has ABS (anti-lock braking system), this helps you to steer if you need to brake severely.
Modifications that have been made to a car can have a real impact on how much car insurance you have to pay. First time drivers have a hard time getting a low-cost insurance policy as it is, so it is always best to purchase a first car that has not been modified. Alloys and spoilers may be visually appealing, but they won’t look so great when you’re paying substantially more on your insurance policy because of them.
