Believe it or not 16 years flies by really fast. Before you know it your baby is ready for driver’s ed and on the way to driving a car. If you are a one car family or even a two car family, chances are they will need their own vehicle.

However, before you run out and buy your teen the car of their dreams you need to ask yourself some questions. Buying a car is a big deal and sometimes when you jump in feet first it can be a disaster!
