    While students don’t necessarily have a car on their back-to-school shopping list, when they do, it’s safe to say that they’re “budget constrained” – and that their parents will want safety and dependability. So that gem with the loud exhaust and fast-and-furious spoiler strapped to the trunk is probably a no-go. Instead, think affordable style.
