Why a Car Is the Best Graduation Gift

Graduation time is here, and whether your grad is walking across the high school stage or the university stage, a car is the best gift you can give! Here are some reasons why your big gift for your grad should be a car from Midwest Superstore.

Safe Options

If your grad gets a car on his or her own, it might be the most economical option, but not the safest option. When you’re in control of what car you’re getting, you can ensure that your student will be behind the wheel of a safe vehicle.

Smart Choices

When you give the gift of a car, you get to pick an option that makes the most sense for your grad. While he or she might prefer a sports car that has a lot of power, you know that a fuel-efficient vehicle with slightly less power is a smarter and ultimately more helpful option.

College Transportation

If your graduate is going away to college, a car is a perfect gift because it makes it easy to get to and from campus. You can choose a car with enough space that’s perfect for hauling your student’s college gear and, of course, for making the trip home to visit!

Helpful Tips for Car Shopping for your College Student

As a parent, sending a child off to college can be both exciting and challenging. While it will come with some added financial burden, making sure your college-bound kid is equipped with a good car can have many benefits. Here are some things to consider when car shopping for your college student:

 

Costs

 

When you account for tuition, meals, books, and housing, the costs of college can quickly add up. That’s why it’s important to shop smart when picking out a car for your college student. We highly recommend finding a car that won’t add too much to the already high cost of sending your child to college.

 

Luckily, buying a certified pre-owned car combines many of the perks of a brand new car with the more affordable price of a used vehicle. When you shop certified pre-owned, you can rest assured that your child is behind the wheel of a good, safe car without the burden of high monthly payments.

 

Needs vs. Wants

 

When shopping for a college student, it’s important to consider what your driver really needs from a car. While they might love the idea of a big SUV or pickup, smaller cars are easier to handle, make parking easier, and generally get better gas mileage than larger cars.
