How to buy a used car for a teen

Are you thinking about putting a used car under the tree this holiday season for your teen driver? It’s no small purchase – this car could very well last them through their college years if you get the right one! That’s where we come in. Here at Toyota of Clermont, we know what qualities you need to look for when shopping for a set of wheels for a teen. Let’s get started!

Clermont used car

When shopping for a Clermont used car for a teen, here are some of the main characteristics you’ll want to tick off your list before you sign the dotted line:

Reliability. You want a reliable used car for your teen not only because you’ll be able to sleep better knowing they’re in good hands, but also so you aren’t forking over the cash for a new ride down the road! Our suggestion is to look for low mileage cars, and we have to say, the best new cars make the best used cars – consider a used Toyota in Clermont. They’re renowned industry-wide for their reliability and longevity. For example, the Toyota Corolla – 80% of all models sold in the past 20 years are still being driven!

Style. This is more for your teen driver than for you, but a little style goes a long way with that crowd. They’ll love the sporty sedans, versatile hatchbacks, and tough trucks that we have on our lot at Toyota of Clermont, so look for something that has a little flair to keep them happy (and keep them off your back for a new ride!). You’ll find a multitude of body styles up for grabs, so just ensure that the one you choose has enough cargo and passenger space!

Technology. Believe it or not, buying a Clermont used car with solid technology is a perk to you both. Your teen will be able to keep their tunes close at hand with features like Bluetooth and Sirius XM Satellite Radio, and you’ll get peace of mind knowing that they’re safe thanks to features like hands-free controls and voice recognition. Plus, some of our used vehicles come with features like navigation, HD radio technology, the Entune App suite, and more! And don’t even get us started on safety technology – your teen driver is in good hands with features like the Star Safety System and the Advanced Airbag System.
