Do you have a teen driver in your life who bugs you for a car of their own almost relentlessly? Or, are you looking into cars to purchase all while keeping in mind your teen driver(s) and their safety? Look no further than Lindsay Volkswagen of Dulles . The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) recently issued a list of the best vehicles for teen drivers including six different Volkswagen models. At Lindsay Automotive, we’re sure you’ll love our selection and have peace of mind when it comes to your loved ones getting behind the wheel. The IIHS conducted this study on teen safety on the road to find safe, stable vehicles that do not tempt teen drivers to drive recklessly.

The Options
Statistics show that 83% of parents buy used vehicles for their teen drivers. The IIHS segmented the list in two:  the Best Options (safest options under $20,000) and the Good Options (safest below $10,000). The Volkswagen vehicles that made the list are as follows:

 

Why They Qualified
The IIHS looked into a detailed set of considerations while attempting to identify which vehicles qualified for the list of vehicles safest to be operated by teens. You may notice there are no compact cars on this list – that’s due to the fact that larger vehicles handle collisions better than small cars do. Also, none of the standard VW’s listed are tuned up with extraordinary levels of horsepower, as this could lead teens to drive faster or more recklessly. Moreover, each vehicle listed above comes equipped with an electronic stability control (ESC) system, which is a safety feature that senses and recovers from skidding. Each vehicle that made the list met or exceeded safety rating standards.

Safety in Shopping
Keep in mind while searching for a car for your teen that modern vehicles do, in fact, come with advanced safety features that beat out older vehicles; that is why all of the Volkswagen vehicles under the Best Choices list are 2009 or newer. These models all include side air bags and advanced traction control systems that make driving smoother and easier than the Good Choices or older cars. Although teens are more susceptible to driving recklessly and getting in accidents, older vehicles will not protect them against these tendencies as well as newer vehicles do, so buy accordingly.

Regardless of your price range and preferences, this used car list compiled by the IIHS can be a helpful guide to purchasing your teen a safe, reliable, solid car. Lindsay Volkswagen of Dulles is more than happy to help you along the way. Keep us in mind!

Come out to Lindsay Volkswagen on the afternoon of June 20, 2014 to meet Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross team members: Tanner Foust and Scott Speed.

The Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross team is preparing for another exciting weekend at the third round of the Red Bull Global Rallycross Championship at Volkswagen Rallycross DC. This race will be particularly exciting for the team, because many of the fans cheering the cars and drivers on will be from the Volkswagen Group of America headquarters in Herndon, VA, near to the nation’s capital.

Scott Speed, driver of the No. 77 7UP Volkswagen and former Formula One driver, wants to continue the focus after coming off two wins in Barbados and X Games Austin.  “We will continue to focus and make sure the 7UP Volkswagen pushes to the front of the pack.”

Tanner Foust, driver of the No. 34 Rockstar Energy Drink Volkswagen and host of Top Gear USA, is excited to be back to the city where he attended high school.  Having a tough start with incidents in both Barbados and X Games Austin, he is seeking the support of his hometown Washington, DC area fans. “I went to high school in Washington, D.C., so this is as much of a hometown race as it can get. With so much Volkswagen fan support, it will be doubly so,” said Foust. “I’ll have a lot of great friends and family at the track supporting the Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross team.”

Volkswagen Rallycross DC will be held at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C., on June 21- 22. NBC will air the race live on Sunday, June 22 at 2 p.m. EST.

Meet Scott Speed and Tanner Foust at Lindsay Volkswagen on June 20, 2014 from 3:30 – 5:30. You will the opportunity to take a photo with the drivers and their cars, as well as have a chance to win tickets to the Volkswagen Rallycross DC event on Saturday and Sunday.

Lindsay Volkswagen will be in attendance at the Rallycross so look for our Volkswagen’s in the opening parade. Look for us while there so you can take a drive in one of our Volkswagen’s.

We have some excellent Father’s Day gift ideas, especially if you want to beat out your siblings and get Dad a gift he’ll never forget!

fathersdaybbqIf your dad is more of the rugged type, check out the 2014 Ram 1500, Chevy Silverado 2500HD, Ford F-150, or Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.  If Dad has a little bit sportier taste, then the Lexus IS F-Sport, Cadillac CTS-V Coupe, or the VW GTI might be right up his alley.
