WEYMOUTH, MA--(Marketwire - Aug 30, 2012) - Each year, parents across America become stressed with all the purchases and schedule changes that come with the back-to-school season. A recent article from The Christian Science Monitor notes that although it may not be on every parent's school supply list, many are letting their teenage students head back to school in a car of their own. While allowing a child to travel independently as a new driver may cause anxiety among parents, many find that the new freedom also saves the parent from having to run carpools between school, extracurricular activities and social events. The Christian Science Monitor lists ten car models that are ideal for the new student driver; respected auto care facility, JB Auto Care responds to this list by encouraging all families to ensure every car is in good mechanic shape before it's driven back to school.
Although the cars listed in the article are varied, the issue of practicality is a common thread among all choices; parents and teenagers are encouraged to purchase cars that meet the needs of the student, but that will not suffocate budgets. JB Auto Care adds that while many students may want the newest model of car, the associated costs can be much too high for parents. The company notes that even if a family can afford a new car, keeping it in good condition may prove challenging as the student learns how to maintain and care for an automobile.
While the models listed in the article may date as far back as the 80s, it notes that many of these cars are good selections due to consistent reliability, easy repair and recognized safety. However, choosing a car may depend on the nature of the student's routine and environment. If the student is a casual driver with an easy-going social life, they may need nothing more than a Honda Civic.
However, if they live in an area that is prone to severe weather, such as snow, purchasing a Toyota 4Runner or Ford Escape may prove more practical.
Regardless of the car model, new or used, JB Auto Care notes that it is essential to make sure that the vehicle is in a safe operating condition so that the student does not encounter any surprises. JB Auto Care President Bill Brusard concludes, "Before your kids head off for school bring their car into an auto shop for an oil change. At JB Auto Care we do a complete inspection of each vehicle that comes into our shop for an oil change. Your safety is our concern."
