The Best Cars for your College Kid 

The Best Cars for your College Kid

2006 Ford Escape

Forbes recently compiled vehicles for its annual "Best Cars for College Students" list, and surprise surprise, they found only four vehicles qualified to meet their criteria of being affordable, safe, and reliable.

Curiously, the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry, both viewed as the "standard" by which similar vehicles are measured, failed to make the list. Forbes says both vehicles did poorly on the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) tests, with the Accord receiving the lowest rating of "poor" for rear-crash protection and the Camry receiving a "marginal" rating in the same test.

So which car should you get your college kid? Take your pick:
Chevrolet Cobalt - $13,590
Ford Escape - $19,780
Honda Civic - $14,560
Hyundai Sonata - $17,195
