Due to the COVID-19 crisis, a lot of teenagers and young adults are experiencing odd academic times. They had to shift to online learning, a lot of them missed their senior proms, and the entire Class of 2020 had virtual graduation ceremonies. To be fair, even though those who didn’t graduate need to continue their education, the future of exactly what their school year will look like in the Fall is unknown. These are uncertain times, indeed.
Because the COVID-19 era has altered our society so drastically, we predict a few things:
The family fleet of vehicles is going to get smaller. We believe that instead of one car per each driver in the household, there will be fewer cars that are shared among mom, dad, and the young drivers. After all, not many car owners are eager to have a car payment in a down economy.
We have seen in recent years that Millenials and Gen Z kids are not excited about driving and owning vehicles. However, now that the family unit is together almost all of the time, we predict that more young drivers are going to seek out driving so they can have more freedom of movement and privacy. This was what the Baby Boomer and Gen X generations experienced, so we think the Millennials and Gen Zs will follow suit.
Our team also predicts that the vehicles the families choose for their family fleet will be affordable, practical, reliable, and able to accommodate the needs of all family members. Though we don’t see sports cars or luxury vehicles going away, we do predict that more families will seek out vehicles that are best suited for the needs and experience levels of both the parents and the young drivers.
Due to our predictions, we thought it might be helpful to provide our list of which car brands are best suited for young drivers. This list is not in any particular order, but it is based off of what vehicles we see in our Turlock-based auto repair shop.
