not necessarily, it depends on the options and if they're a good 5 years old or so you have to check around with insurance companies......AAA offers excellent coverage at low rates

True,But it is a 17 year old they talking about.

Lots of choices but, in my view, there are no safe cars only safe drivers. OK? Risk taking is prime reason for crashes not to mention being in a hurry all the time. With the help of several websites I have determined that any speed above 60 mph on the highway is purely a waste of fuel. People think 70 is normal. But that is only 10 miles above 60 and when the difference is calculated for the average drive of 20 miles the time difference is less than 2 minutes at the end. Your need for the car to be customizable indicates you have some money to spend. I would spend that money for advance driving lessons availabe in many locations. You will learn to steer properly, drive looking way forward, to signal properly, not to tail gate and be aware of the energy limits of tire/surface contact. These subjects are not taught at basic driving school and too many people crash because of this lack of knowledge. Driving drunk, texting or just driving distracted are subjects that also need to be discussed. Good luck finding your perfect vehicle.
