Are Used Cars Better for Teen Drivers?

When your teenage daughter or son gets their license, you will be filled with both excitement and concerns. And of course, as a parent, you'll also be thinking about what kind of car they will drive. Safety and reliability will certainly be at the top of the criteria.

While it can be tempting to reward them with a brand-new vehicle, not everyone has that kind of budget. Thankfully, used cars can be just as safe, reliable, and the overall better option. And you don't have to break the bank! Below are some reasons why used cars may be better for teen drivers:

Affordable

The biggest bonus you get in buying a used car is its lower price tag. You can save tens of thousands of dollars by purchasing your son or daughter a used vehicle.

Keep Insurance Costs Low

Furthermore, you'll be able to save money on your car insurance. Adding a teen driver to your insurance policy can be costly, especially if you want them insured on a brand new car. To avoid seeing your insurance bill skyrocket, you should go with the safer bet: a used vehicle.

No Worries On Small Cosmetic Problems

You can worry less about your younger driver making minor dings, bumps, and scratches. It's less concerning to you and probably cheaper to repair.

Wide Range of Options

When shopping for brand new cars, you may not have a lot of options that fit your budget. You can also negotiate better with used cars over new cars. 

 

Cars are a significant investment, whether buying new or used. If you come across a couple of prospects, please do not hesitate to bring the car to Quality Tune Up Car Care Center for a pre-purchase inspection. We can let you know the ins and outs of its condition to make a confident buying decision.
