Seeing your child earn his or her driver’s license is a momentous occasion in your life. It can also be a time of great worry and anxiety, especially if your teenager is asking for his or her very own car. Fortunately, you can find a reliable and affordable vehicle for your teen when you shop at a reputable car dealership. To help you find the right vehicle, here are some tips for choosing your teen’s first car.
Safety should be the first concern when shopping for your teen’s first car. Luckily, you can find a safe and reliable vehicle when you shop at Jerry’s Chevrolet. Seven 2014 models have received 5-star Overall Vehicle Scores from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the highest possible score. That’s the most 2014 5-Star Overall Vehicle Scores of any automotive brand, including Ford and Toyota.
Used vs. New
You are probably torn between the safety and reliability of a new car and the value of one that is pre-owned. Although new models typically feature the latest safety innovations from Chevy, models that are just a few years old are also extremely safe and offer a much better value. Of course, you could always shop for a Certified Pre-Owned Chevrolet and get the best of both worlds in terms of value and reliability.
Get Behind the Wheel
No matter which vehicle you and your teen decide on, make sure you test drive it yourself to see how it handles and whether it is too big or too powerful for your teen. Also check to make sure that there aren’t any unusually large blind spots or distracting features inside the cabin.
