Ford Mustang Tops List Of Young Drivers' Most Wanted Cars

Ford Mustang Tops List Of Young Drivers' Most Wanted Cars 1ForbesAutos.com is among my favorite automotive sites. It reviews cars like other sites, but what I really like is the site’s lists. Among the most recent compilations is the list of the cars young drivers (under age 21) want most.

ForbesAuto.com, in its long article written by John Adams, is quick to explain vehicles purchased by car buyers under age 21 represent only 1.2 percent of all new car sales.

Nevertheless, it’s interesting]]> to examine young car buyers’ habits, particularly considering 3.2 million kids in the United States have or will graduate from high school this year.

Nine of out the top-10 (and ties) favorites among young car buyers are automobiles priced under $20,000. Ford has three cars on the list, Volkswagen, Toyota and Honda are represented twice. Jeep, Dodge and Chevrolet have one selection each.
