|The look many young car owners get when they hear their insurance quote.|
4) If you have a bad driving record (more than one ticket or accident), don't plan on driving a nice car until those claims or tickets drop off your record. Why is it that young kids with the worst driving records always want to drive an Audi, Corvette, Mustang, or convertibles? Get a junker car you can just carry liability insurance on until you can afford a newer or nicer car.
I'm sorry to sound so heartless, but I've just seen too many young and naive guys who are so excited and proud of their new ride until they get the shock of their life when they find out how much it is going to cost to insure a car that they are now legally committed to. (Kind of like waking up and realizing you just got married while you were drunk the night before). Knowing some of these things before you make a foolish commitment can save you you grief and a lot of money.
