How To Find The Right Car For Your Teen Driver

Points to consider when buying your teen their first car

You still remember the feeling of driving your own car for the very first time.  The new car smell, the radio blasting your favorite music as you got on the freeway. Windows down, sun shining, and your new car taking you wherever you wanted to go.  Every mile marker you passed gave you a sense of freedom that you'd only dreamt about. Now, it's time to give that gift of adventure and independence to your own children, but as a parent you're more worried about their safety than anything else.  

In the past, the most common car purchase for new drivers was usually the cheapest car possible because teen drivers just need something to learn on that will get them from point a to b without too much trouble.  

While this strategy may have worked in the past, there's no reason why it still needs to be employed in today's world.  Today, whether you're shopping for a new car or a used car, there are plenty of incredibly safe, cost conscious options.

A Few Considerations When Purchasing For A Teen:

  • Additional car insurance cost

  • Car payment options that your teen may be able to afford with a part-time job

  • Paying cash vs. financing

  • Warranty Programs
