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:
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.
