Should I Give My Teenager a New Car When They Start Driving?

January 31st, 2019 by

With today’s reality TV shows and social media, we see a lot of people enjoy different lifestyles – and oftentimes we aspire to be like these people by purchasing the same clothing styles, decorating our home a certain way, or trying out a special recipe. Our teenagers are also watching these shows and are trying to aspire to be like these TV and internet sensations. However, sometimes things go too far, and our teenager feels like he/she deserves to have the same things that these celebrities have. This includes a brand-new car when they turn 16 and get their driver’s license.

So what do you do when your daughter wants a $200,000 Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon like the Kardashian and Jenner sisters have, or your son wants a brand-new Chevy Corvette outfitted with the biggest engine?

While we love our children – even when they become prickly teenagers – we feel that they truly have no business driving expensive luxury cars. While they might have passed their driving test, teenagers do not have a lot of experience behind the wheel, and there is a good chance that they will ruin that expensive car. That means a LOT of money will go down the drain.

If your teen is eager to get their own vehicle, driving a hand-me-down car is as much part of the American teen as like trying odd and unflattering clothing trends or wearing sparkly eyeshadow. If you would like to pass down your current vehicle to your teen while upgrading to one of our new Mitsubishi vehicles, that is awesome!

On the other hand, if you would like your teenager to purchase their own vehicle, bring them to us here at Mitsubishi, where we offer a wide selection of affordable new Mitsubishi vehicles along with many used vehicles from a variety of brands. Our financing professionals can work with your teen to create affordable payment options and to build their credit.
