I need help picking a good safe car for under $3000. I want something that’s older but not too old, so '94-'04 would be good. Nothing too big but not a car that’s very lightweight. Most important it should be a car made with safety as it’s higher priorities. I will need to drive this car on the freeway a lot in the near future and being a fairly new driver with little experience on the freeway, having a car I can feel safe in is important. I currently drive a 2002 Kia Rio and although it gets me where I need to go, it’s very lightweight and don’t feel comfortable using it on the freeway.
I know a Volvo is one good option but any other suggestions would be fantastic!
